Posted By: fostertomI'm thinking of a 70s rendered cav wall bungalow with voids, which we're EWIing and airtighting. Think I can guarantee that dry even without disturbing carpeted and kitchen-fitted floors for inspection, let alone u'floor insulation access. In that case, instead of the 'EWI down to found' approach, we'll just take it down to GL, at least on the sides where it stands well above GL, and fill the u'floor voids with Leca. Maybe some 'wing' Leca round the other 2 sides.
Posted By: Viking HouseYes! but Mike George's photos mostly show joist end rot which seems to indicate that the wall is damp, if it was rot due to condensation on the joists then shouldn't the rot be on the bottom of the joists where the condensation occured?
Posted By: fostertomThe u/floor Leca? There's case studies on the web of blowing it in from a tanker, otherwise yes some floor holes and push it around, not so easy. Economics depends on quantity and distance from base, no doubt.
