  1. Keen to hear what you think of this battery over time as I have it lined up to be installed in the next few months.
  2. Hopefully they put your mind at ease and you're able to process an application and move forward with your build. Be sure to keep us updated.
  3. It sounds like you are in the same position as myself around September 2021. Ecology have lent at a higher rate against a customers salary compared to traditional lenders and the process along with their support is fantastic, to the point I have yet to see a negative comment about them. I have heard of them lending up to 5.5 x a customers salary (there is a thread on here I will try finding for you and linking to it) though just before I applied I was lucky enough to negotiate a salary increase which helped the worries of applying. Though these 5+ times salary were before the Bank of England increased the base rate so that would be taken into consideration. See @Wagas post about half way down @Conor thread 👍
  4. I dropped them an email yesterday as I was thinking the same thing. I'll keep the post updated for others for future reference.
  5. I also couldn't speak anymore highly of Ecology, they have been brilliant. Thanks for confirming that Ian, I appreciate that as it's definitely food for thought.
  6. Hi all, It's maybe a silly question as I have signed up with an agreed figure and I may only increase the loan amount when remortgaging the house but what I was wondering has anyone increased the initial agreed amount before the build has been completed? Why I ask, with the cost of everything going up, the possibility of increasing the total mortgage loan figure is becoming more appealing. My affordability shouldn't be a problem as I didn't take the maximum figure at the start. Again, I might be asking a silly question but thought it would be good to run it past you good folk to see. Thanks, Joe
  7. Hi All, I hope you're keeping well! I am getting close to the stage I will need to seal up around the floor to wall and the wall to ceilings joints within the house with Blowerproof; I actually plan on sealing up all the wall tracking and sockets etc this weekend. Though around the outside of the floors against the walls (floor to wall joints - see attached photo) we have this membrane down which the contractor needs to keep in place. Any recommendations how I would approach this - do I paint the blower proof on above and below the edging membrane? how have you done this? Thanks, Joe
  8. Would I just simply paint it on above and below the membrane do you think on the ground floors?

  10. Good morning all, I was wondering if some of you good folk could advise me on sealing up wall electrical sockets and any openings on the walls for electrics regarding air leakage. We have have been recommended a product called 'Aerosana Viscon' by our renewable heating engineer but have recently bought Blowerproof liquid airtight membrane on the recommendation from forum members for sealing joints between floors and wall along with walls and ceilings. It's maybe obvious that Blowerproof would also to the job for the sockets etc but has anybody used it for this job, or would you recommend a different product? @Conor, did you use Blowerproof also for this or go with a different product? Thank, Joe
  11. It's with McMullan - O'Donnell; we have had good experiences dealing with them, great customer service and very personable. Our contractor also recommends them very highly and has worked a lot with them over the years. https://mcmullanodonnell.com/
  12. We're being told 10-12 weeks turnaround times. Our windows are being measured up this week.
  13. Also, forgot these guys are right beside me in Ahoghill. Going to ping them an email to see if they have any in stock.
  14. Thanks Conor and also thanks for your advice on my last post a few weeks back regarding first floor insulation. I never got the chance to thank you. It's been a busy few weeks.
  15. Conor, what product did you get and where locally did you source it if you don't mind me asking?
