Cambrian & Clydach v Llanelli Town.

Published

on

CAMBRIAN & CLYDACH   1   LLANELLI TOWN   0

DESPITE going down to yet another defeat courtesy of an 88th minute goal, the Reds can take heart from the overall effort shown by the players newly recruited from the Carmarthenshire league who all played their part in a gutsy performance which, with a little more luck, could well have earned them all three points.

Two of the three signings from Seaside were named in the starting line-up, Callum Thomas and Jack Watkins, while the other, Jamie Jenkins, along with Rob Owens from Calsonic and Lenny Evans from Dafen were on the bench, although all three featured in the latter stages of the game.

Also making welcome returns after lengthy injury lay-offs, were Jordan Davies and Ross Jones, who brought some much needed stability in midfield and showed they had lost little of their previous skills.

A dismal afternoon in the Rhondda with frequent rain showers and an artificial surface which has seen better days, perhaps was not the ideal introduction for the visitors` new faces, but they all coped well, and given a few more matches to adapt to their new environment, they all look useful additions to the squad.

The hosts, in the early stages, appeared to be given too much leeway going forward, with Liam Edwards twice going close to opening their account, and their opponents were being forced on to the back foot.

However, they survived this initial threat and began to exert some pressure themselves on the home goal, with Liam Samuel having hit shot on the turn safely dealt with by goalkeeper Cameron Clarke.

The Reds goal then survived a close call when a ball hoisted long downfield found the head of Sam Jones, whose finish was marginally off target with Kai Rees off his line.

Rees was called into action to gather a free kick driven low into the goalmouth by Leon Jacks, before the visitors had a golden opportunity of taking the lead with the award of a penalty on 27 minutes following a foul on Nathan Logan in the box by Kyle Jones.

Samuel stepped up to take the kick, but it was a poor effort, lacking both pace and direction, and was kept out with some ease by Clarke.

Heads might have dropped following this disappointment, but to their credit the Reds continued to search for a breakthrough, and went agonisingly close to doing so when a shot by Logan beat Clarke before rebounding off the inside of the far post and into the grateful hands of the keeper.

When he hosts countered, Corey Shepherd blasted over the top from the edge of the box, while Callum Thomas brought off a saving block to deny Cameron Keetch after a surging run from his own half had afforded him the chance.

Still scoreless at the break, the visitors again came close to opening their account early in the second half when a run by Samuel culminated with a delivery into the goalmouth which was met by Kyle Copp, but somehow, from point blank range, Clarke managed to keep it out, more by luck than judgement.

At the other end, Rees was called into action to turn around a near post effort by Keetch, while a Reds attack saw Logan have his finish diverted for a corner, which when taken fell to Davies, but he lofted his shot high over the goal.

The visitors` goal then survived a close call when a slick move involving Jacks and Andre Griffiths led to the latter delivering a ball low across the face of the net, and Liam Reed was fractionally away from making contact.

The Reds then made a couple of changes, with Evans and Owens replacing the tiring Davies and Chris Thomas respectively on 73 minutes, with Jenkins coming on for Logan five minutes later.

With time running out, it appeared as if the game would end scoreless, before a situation arose which went against the visitors and ultimately cost them the dearly.

When a ball was hoisted high into their box, both Rees and Lee Bevan rose to deal with it, colliding heavily and ending up on the ground and needing treatment, but when the game was restarted, possession of the ball was given to the home side with Bevan still waiting to come back on to the field, and they took full advantage by sending a diagonal pass into the path of Keetch who rifled his finish into the bottom corner with just two minutes of normal time remaining.

This was a bitter pill to swallow for the Reds who had certainly played well enough to have earned at least a share of the points, but at the moment they are not having the rub of the green, and will be hoping that they can turn matters around with the visit of STM Sports to Stebonheath which supporters are asked to note will be on Friday evening, kick off 7.30 p.m. and not Saturday, as previously announced.

TRIMSARAN moved to the top of League 3 West B on Saturday (Jan 8) as they beat Bynea 39-5.

It was the only game to be played in the Division as others battled covid-19 cases and waterlogged pitches following overnight rain.

Lee Bates had scored two tries in Trimsaran’s last game before Christmas and he carried on his good form with a hat trick of tries on Saturday.

Iwan Green and Chris Lacey also went over for the home side who were also awarded a penalty try.

There were three conversions and a penalty from Corey Phillips as Trimsaran secured a bonus point win.

Trim now sit top of the table, unbeaten in their opening four games in the league, and they are now level on points with second placed Tumble who have played a game more.

On Saturday, January 15, Trimsaran travel to Tumble while Bynea will look to get back to winning ways when they host New Dock Stars.

Cavity Wall Insulation Removal – Everything you Need to Know

Published

on

OVER the years many people have been a victim of poorly installed cavity wall insulation. In contrast to what you were promised, the insulation is failing to keep your home warm.

When the correct material is installed to a home that is in good condition, cavity wall insulation is an energy efficient way to keep your home warm. However over recent years cavity wall insulation has been known to be installed incorrectly. This has caused problems such as penetrating damp, condensation, mould and deterioration of existing
render/masonry.

If you’ve experienced any of the above lately, then it is time to consider extracting your cavity wall insulation.

Unsure whether you need cavity wall insulation removal? Speak to one of our friendly specialists for a free consultation.

Why has my cavity wall insulation failed?

Many homeowners can be completely unaware if their cavity walls have been installed correctly. It is impossible to know if it is under-filled, over-packed, where it has slumped, where areas have been missed, blockage to vents and other internal obstructions. From our experience the blame can normally be placed on one of the following pointers;

  • The cavity has not been appropriately cleared prior to the install.
  • How prone the property’s location is to wind and rain exposure.
  • Damage to external walls such as cracks within render/ pointing of brickwork.
  • The cavity width is too small.
  • Property structure is not appropriate for cavity insulation.
  • Insulation has not been installed properly.
  • Debris in the cavity wall which causes a thermal bridge.
  • Poor materials have been installed such as mineral wool, formaldehyde foam.
  • No bonding agent installed with carbon carbon, diamond bead or expanded polystyrene beads.
  • Leaking roof and damage to soffit.
  • Insulation becoming wet through flooding or fire damage.

Are there grants available for cavity extraction?
At this moment in time, cavity extraction grants are not available. However, for those who still have access to their guarantees, there is a possibility that you could claim off the guarantee provider. This process can be tedious however our specialists are there to help you.

Is it possible to remove cavity wall insulation?
Failed cavity wall insulation will not get better over time, it will get worse. The good news is that it is possible to extract the current insulation and remove any debris.
Our team of technicians are able to remove insulation and rubble from within your cavity using an extraction machine. In addition to this, air bricks are installed to the external wall of the property to allow cross flow ventilation. This is crucial and will allow the cavity to breathe and the internal skin to dry out.

What is cavity wall extraction?
Cavity wall extraction is the process of removing defective wall insulation. As a result of poorly insulated cavities there is a growing demand for cavity extraction across the UK. Particularly in areas of high wind and rain exposure. There are many cavity wall extraction companies offering their service. However, be sure to check that they hold an oscar onsite certification and trustmark approval. This will ensure a high standard of workmanship.

How long does it take to extract cavity wall insulation?
The average cavity wall extraction takes roughly 2 days, however this figure varies from property to property. Some insulative materials can become rigid or rubble can collect at the bottom of the cavity from previous work. Both of which can slow down the process drastically. Nevertheless, it’s crucially important to remember that the cavity space has been cleared and nothing can act as a thermal bridge.

Will cavity extraction cure my penetrating damp?
Essentially, when the defective cavity wall insulation has been successfully extracted moisture will be unable to pass from the external brick to the internal brick. With time and the correct ventilation the damp will dry out and there will no longer be a problem. However depending on the damage that has been done already for example, blown plaster or render this would have to be rectified by a specialist.

How do our technicians detect failed cavity wall insulation?
The survey process is straightforward and allows our technicians to gauge the severity of the problem and which method is best suited to extract the insulation.

  • A general inspection can be carried out; cracks within brickwork, damp spots/patches on render and vents which aren’t sleeved.
  • A borescope inspection allows our technician to look inside the cavity which is aquick and easy way to determine the state of the insulation.
  • Thermal imaging is another way to diagnose areas of the property that may be actingas a thermal bridge.
