CHEAP LOFT INSULATION
« on: February 25, 2009, 01:06:43 pm »

Big bargain @ B & Q just now.    3 rolls in pack covers 5.4 meters, 200mm thick,  4.5 r value.       3 per pack.   I have just bought enough to do my loft for 27.   The youngster behind till made a mistake with price undercharging me by 9 on one visit.     It's some kind of deal between B & Q and British Gas.  GET DOWN THERE QUICK as the stuff is flying out the door with tradesmen passing the word and going off with a pallet load at a time.

I managed to stuff 3 packs in boot, four on back seat and one in the front on one visit.   I can still feel the odd scratch and the stuff in my throat.   Not looking forward to the installation one bit but I will have to bite the bullet as the shed is stuffed full of it.

It may sound good to you lot, but I'm the poor B&Q van person  that has to deliver all this cheap stuff.
The loft insulation is not too bad. It's the pallet loads of cheap laminate flooring that's killing me. I have to unload and carry it by hand.
