Go Paperless

Did you know that we offer the facility to send all correspondence by email? Many of our clients already use this facility as they find it much more convenient as well as having a positive impact on the environment.  If you would like to sign up to our paperless service please email paperless@speirsgumley.com and we’ll do the rest, it’s that simple.

As part of our commitment to the environment we work in partnership with Trees for Life, Scotland’s leading conservation volunteering charity whose vision is to restore Scotland’s ancient Caledonian Forest and who this year celebrate 25 years of work.  We have set up a Speirs Gumley grove and for every client who signs up to our paperless scheme we will make further contributions to allow additional trees to be planted and to help Trees for Life reach their goal of expanding the Caledonian Forest with a million more trees by 2018.

Cavity Wall Insulation

We are aware that there are a number of companies approaching home owners either by letter or door to door sales promoting the installation of cavity wall insulation. Although we have also been contacted by certain companies we must make it clear that we have not approved or endorsed any proposed installations of cavity wall insulation.

While we appreciate that there may be benefits to installing cavity wall insulation and the system could reduce energy bills you should be aware that cavity wall insulation is not suitable for all building types and each property should be considered on its own merits prior to any owners agreeing to any proposals. We understand that approaches are being made to home owners on the basis that the works are carried out free of charge however we would urge you to be wary of agreeing to proceed without first obtaining detailed clarification of whether the works are suitable for your property.
