Earthquake Repairs – Christchurch Canterbury
As we are a Christchurch owned and operated business, we too understand the hardships, anxieties and uncertainties of rebuilding and providing earthquake repairs to your Christchurch home.
This is why we here at Green Dog Insulation are dedicated to helping you and your family make good things come out of a bad situation. This means that there are benefits to repairing or rebuilding your home, thus giving you the advantage of making it warm and comfortable throughout winter, and cool in summer, by installing new insulation or fixing/replacing existing insulation.

Insulation can be installed within a number of areas in your home.
These are as follows:
Your roof or the ceiling may have suffered structural damage and therefore may need to be lifted. This is a great opportunity for our installers to come in and install insulation in your ceiling during this process.
Internal/external wall repairs
Your home may need its external wall cladding or internal wall linings repaired, or replaced due to the vigorous shaking. This is also a prime opportunity for you to upgrade or add insulation into the cavities in your walls. Your builders will be pulling away the walls, thus leaving them exposed. This is the time in which our installers can install the insulation, before your builders affix the walls back together.
The shaking can cause some types of insulation to droop within the wall cavity, meaning it will not be working to its fullest potential of maintaining comfortable temperatures in the rooms of your home. Some types of insulation can be stapled into these wall cavities, which will prevent this from happening in the future.
If your home has suffered flooding or liquefaction under your house it is possible that your insulation is not working to its fullest potential, even after it has dried out. It is important to remove old insulation that has been damaged as it can be moldy and harmful to your health. We can remove this for you and install new insulation in the process.
What Our Customers are Saying...
GREEN DOG INSULATION WORKED QUICKLY AND DID A VERY EFFICIENT JOB WITH THE MINIMUM OF DISRUPTION TO MY ROUTINE.
This week I've had Terra Lana insulation installed in the ceiling and underfloor at my home. I'm writing to advise you that I'm well pleased with the work of your employees, Jon, Andy & Nathan.John
Thank you for the professional and efficient way that you informed me of your insulation options.
I am in my sixties and I have a warm open plan living dining room and kitchen area. Since the insulation has been installed, this now keeps me warm even on the coldest of winter nights with just 1200watts oil fin electric heater. Last winter it took me 2200watts of the same heating source to heat that area, so I am very pleased.Rachel
YOU WOULDN'T GET A BETTER JOB ANYWHERE ELSE, THEY HAVE GONE BEYOND THE LEVEL OF EXPECTATIONS
We called asking us for a quote for blown in wool insulation. We did the Black Polythene and Sisalation Foil for early 2009. Installers were Michael and Aaron. We had Environment Canterbury around for a quote to do ceiling insulation and we had to check the underfloor out. They quoted "You wouldn't get a better job anywhere else, they have gone beyond the level of expectations.Michael
WHAT A LOVELY SURPRISE TO RECEIVE A BOX OF CHOCOLATES FROM YOU GUYS, THANK YOU
We were very happy with your service, from the first phone call I made to you through to the assessment and the installers of our new insulation and the guy who came to check it all out. Top marks to all of you. And yes, we have noticed a difference, our living area holds the heat better, even with our cursed 14 downlights.Neil & Doreen
We found the company pleasant and helpful to deal with and the unit we selected was installed promptly and at the cost agreed
While living in a 2 bedroom unit last year, we found we had severe problems with condensation every morning and decided to research ways to combat it.
We priced and studied systems from three companies and found the one we believed most suited to our needs for cost effectiveness and efficiency, could be supplied by Green Dog Insulation.
