It’s hard to know where to start when it comes to the UK’s housing crisis.
There are major supply shortages in London and the South East. Huge numbers of homes are in disrepair all over the UK. Poor maintenance and insulation has led to UK homes being some of the most expensive to heat in Europe, driving up fuel poverty. More than a third of the UK’s carbon emissions come from buildings.
The scale of government failure is epic.
When it comes to existing homes, rather than new-build, the government has set some reasonable – though not ambitious enough – targets to improve energy efficiency. It has committed to making all homes EPC band C or above by 2035. That means rolling out a national programme of double glazing, loft insulation, wall insulation, and other measures.
Safestyle UK PLC (LON:SFE) have been manufacturing and installing affordable, high quality, energy efficient and secure windows and doors for homeowners across England and Wales for over 20 years.
