    Insulation issues with Wainhomes

    ...Problem you have is it is now passed the 2 year warranty and this wont be covered by the NHBC, unless you complained in writing to Wainhomes and this is an unresolved issue.

    Airbricks NHBC guideline?

    ...manager, would see this and adjust the levels on site accordingly. Worst case on noting what you have seen he would do something about it - not ignore it as it would appear everyone, including the NHBC, have done.
