New Build Insulation

Nothing beats the blank canvas that is a new home. ANYTHING is possible! This is the perfect chance to design your dream home with comfort and well-being in mind. A warm and cosy home?  Yes, please!

Slowly but steadily, New Zealand is catching up to the idea that a warm and dry home is not a luxury. Getting the insulation of your new home right the first time around should be high on the priority list. You won’t be able to see it (unless of course, you talk about the power bills), but you’ll definitely FEEL it.

The New Zealand Building Code outlines some minimum requirements for the insulation of a new house. But by world standards, these are still quite low-performance targets for residential thermal insulation. Most of the time, we’re talking about a difference of a few hundred dollars as opposed to ‘thousands’ between a house that is compliant and one that scores top marks for comfort and energy efficiency.

With a wide range of world-class insulation products available, there is bound to be one that suits your requirements and budget. So let’s chat about how we can nail the insulation for your brand new spanking house.
