Couldn't tell you unfortunately, we have the heater set to turn on before we get up.

We have a new estate going in behind our back fence which is super noisy and the windows do a great job of reducing it.

The house still gets cold, but maybe not quite as cold. Though we get to 16 in the bedroom overnight. It helps a lot with noise reduction.

The builder installs drainage pits around the house, it's up to you to cut them down to the right height to aid drainage. We're also sloped away from the house…

I think they think it's a joist? But they won't know more till they investigate.
