New Build Insulation

New Build Insulation

Choosing and installing the right insulation for a new home build

When building a new home, you will need to ensure that your home meets the thermal resistance requirements set out in the New Zealand Building Code. See the NZBC for more information.

Southtile Christchurch will work with you to ensure the best insulation solution for your new house construction. We supply and instal insulation from reputable suppliers and can advise about which products will suit your build.

Installing the right insulation in the right way while you are constructing is the best way to properly insulate your home. Retrofitting insulation after a house is completed is of course possible, but access to wall cavities, ceiling spaces, and underfloor is always easier during construction. Best to do it right the first time.
