It has come to our attention recently that a number of existing Icynene customers in the UK are being contacted by people falsely posing as Icynene inspectors or Icynene contractors stating they need to inspect Icynene installation for warranty purposes.
We have also received reports of companies calling on existing Icynene customers stating that an inspection is necessary and that the removal of spray foam (along with other works such as roof cleaning and sealing) is required. These companies may say they have used thermal imaging cameras from outside the house to claim that there are moisture problems in the roof and that remedial works are required.
Please be aware that no inspection of any existing Icynene application is required as a condition of your warranty or otherwise after installation.
If you have been targeted by companies claiming that an inspection or other works are required as a result of your Icynene insulation please let us know at email@example.com and see below for further details or reporting scams or cold calling.
Please contact us for advice and guidance in relation to your Icynene insulation at any time.
