Does my home have solid walls?
The house you are living in probably has solid external walls rather than cavity walls, If your home was built before 1920. Cavity Walls as we know them today did not really come into widespread use in the UK until after the 1920’s generally speaking.
you can also tell if you live in a brick-built home, by checking the thickness of your external walls. It is best to do this by measuring them in an external doorway or window. If a wall is less than 10 inches thick, it’s probably solid.
Some houses have a different type of wall structure altogether. If your house is a steel-frame or timber-framed building, or is made from pre-fabricated concrete, then you will need to ask a specialist insulation installer to advise you.
