Green Paints...

Green Paints are manufactured to a high standard from an ethically sourced soya bean resin, which is sustainably grown and is renewable. It has continued to improve in its environmental credentials since its founding days in 1986 as Green Paints, when chemist Allen Beaven, saw no reason why it was not possible to manufacture a water-based paint that was environmentally friendly and which would provide a level of durability that compared to that of conventional paints, but without the associated hazards. To this day it is still manufactured by a small family business to those founding enacting principles and who continue to evolve this eco paint.

Green Paints is our preferred ecological paint of use (see our Awards) and an award winning product (as Green Paints - Novocoat ) in 'Which April 2002 - Weather Beaten' test being awarded 'Best on Test' and 'Best Buy', even when pitched along side conventional paints for it's performance and durability against cracking and the protection of external wood surfaces. When it comes to environmentally friendly coatings Green Paints really does set the standard!

Green Paints do not compromise on quality, does not cost the earth and is eco friendly. It is also available in a wide range of colours that leaves you with a beautiful finish and as easy to apply as conventional paint.

Solid Wall Insulation...

The UK's housing stock is estimated at approximately 24.5 million dwellings, of which 36% are non-cavity wall construction - solid brick, solid stone, pre-1944 timbre frame and concrete, ect. These types of buildings lose more heat and energy than any other type of construction, with the average modern house being up to four times more energy efficient than its Victorian equivalent. While many local authorities, housings associations, private landlords and home owners have been concentrating on filling cavities walls to achieve their carbon savings, improving the thermal efficiency of solid-wall properties has largely been ignored. This is primarily because the solutions are deemed to be more expensive and cause greater disruption, hence the reason that these types of dwellings are referred to as 'hard to treat homes'. This is not actually correct; they are not hard to treat, just more expensive to insulate compared to cavity wall insulation. The effort is of more benefit in comparison to cavity wall insulation, as the subsequent heat savings to solid wall buildings is much higher.

One type of treatment is 'flexible thermal linings', which come on a roll and are applied like wallpaper. This will not cause significant disruption and can be integrated into any decorating scheme. These are available in many forms and thicknesses, varying from just 3mm to 10mm and greater. The vital advantage of using the thinner lining is that you retain that all important character and definition of the trim / cornice edge and therefore retain the finer more subtle feature to your humble abode.

Possible grants maybe available from The Warm Front and Energy Efficiency Commitment Scheme, The Energy Saving Trust. The Ecology Building Society offer numerous discounts and incentives. The Governments new scheme, The Green Deal is to be introduced in the autumn of 2012 with a new approach to carbon reduction funding.
