Our award-winning regeneration work has reached a major milestone this year.
We are proud to have fitted our 1,000th external wall insulation (EWI) to a council home in North East Derbyshire. Read our 1,000th External Wall Insulation newsletter to find out more.
Our 1000th customer, Lisa from Grassmoor, had this to say about the work to her home:
"The house is a lot warmer and less expensive to heat. Before we were using £20-30 gas a week now it is £10-15. We noticed the difference straight away this winter.
"The work was straight forward and it all went very smoothly. I would say to anyone it was well worth the disruption. You can clean up mess – it doesn’t last forever but the benefits will last for a long time.
"The Customer Liaison staff have been fantastic. During the work they even brought ear defenders for my 8-year-old boy because he is very sensitive to sound. Jill from Rykneld has been a godsend because if I had any problems she was there to sort them for me and was very reassuring. It’s those little things that make such a big difference."
Thousands of customers now live in properties that are easier to heat and keep warm thanks to an EWI programme which has also seen us fit new roofs, central heating systems, and windows.
Our achievement has been recognised by industry experts and we have won several awards for our work to reduce carbon emissions and tackle fuel poverty by using sustainable insulation technology.
Rykneld’s success reinforces our reputation as an organisation delivering high quality services which compare with the best at both national and regional level.
This is what some of our other customers had to say:
- “We would just like to extend our grateful thanks and appreciation to all the staff for the excellent work they have carried out to our home. We now have a modern, comfortable, warm and economically efficient home. Thank you all.”
- “My home is a lot warmer, I don't have the gas on now except for half an hour in a morning when I first get up and then it's off.”
- "I'm really happy with the work! Rykneld Homes have invested a lot of money and it looks brilliant. It's made a really big difference."
- “It’s the best thing that’s happened in the 35 years we’ve lived in this property.”
