I've got a development property that needs the works, EWI, Insulation, New windows, boiler etc...

After an assessment can I do all the work myself then claim the money back or get funding somehow?

No mate. Im not silly. I install on behalf of a manufacturer who have a pas

Is there anyway to get any grant/funding if I install it myself? Maybe you can come and do it for me Dan...straight forward job about 50m2! I want Weber XP, 90mm.

You cant get funding if you install yourself mate. You need the gd assessment and claim.a voucher. Then take it to gd installer. If you find a bigger company they may do boiler and loft at same voucher.

Your ewi needs to be at least 50% of your property.
why weber?

It's over pebble dash...it's not completely flat so i thought I'd go for XP and M1 as I can dab on 10mm beads and it seems like quickest to install...why is there something wrong with Weber?

Completely the opposite in the midlands i'd say 90%+ of the ewi work is dash. Starting to see more thin coat lately but personally i don't think it looks right on terrace houses.

I worked for a firm doing hundreds of council houses/flats and it was all dash until the likes of mark group started doing green deal work

I think it looks shocking.prefer a nice flat finish myself.
The south coast & the midlands are two different places I suppose.

I'm not dashing over it mate! I'm fixing the boards over existing pebble dash...the dash is flat, was done just before I bought the property. I can get the Weber system locally form Minsters and can spray the M1.

But If I can get funding and someone will do a tidy job for me I'll be happy @Warrior

You need to find a local GD provider . You can only get the funding through them Inc any green deal plans and GDHIF if they are an installer as well then you may well be able to do the works on a sub contract basis to them but they will want their pound of flesh , an OA could cost you 100 quid or more but you need one to highlight the measures required and to claim any funding go to Gr33n Group and have a look at their online calculator

Best thing to do is get a GDA have you checked its a solid wall property and even qualify for any funding at all.

Spoke to minster yesterday in Sheffield and they won't take any EWI materials now, they have done a u-turn as they were on about stocking it full time.

Can't imagine one would and the other wont.

Usually have to buy direct from weber, but they are pricey compared to other manufacturers.

They all supply it but you can buy from the manufacturer in bulk. Ilbruck do it but I get mine from ivas.
Apu beads from Wemico also have a good compri seal buy the 6mm not the 3mm

Have you ever done an ewi before windows are installed? rational installers are being difficult on a job and refuse installation until ewi is complete, it makes life difficult as they are giving me a 6mm tolerance. What do you reckon.

I do new build mostly when it comes to eifs/ Ewi so yes I have done a few installs before the windows were fitted.

Are they using floating frame windows ?
