      Potential damage to cable due to exterior wall insulation installed

      I have had exterior wall insulation fitted to my solid wall house. Originally the telephone cables were covered by this insulation, but due to a planning error part of the insulation had to be removed permanently. This exposed a metre or so of cable which was then covered by the primer and decorative layers. Apart from a sagging appearance I am wondering if these contaminents will cause the cable to become brittle or damage in some other way. Any ideas? The installers are blase about it. I would have posted to Openreach but they point at the ISP.

      Openreach are responsible for the cable to your house, but you will have to approach them via your ISP.
