I know this has been posted previously, but that was over 3 months ago.

The deal is still on, with free delivery and free mask, goggles and gloves.

Site has a calculator to work out how much you need and what it will cost.

100mm or 170mm available, both £3 a roll

Just added 170mm to my loft 45sq/m for £36

You dont need to be an npower customer to qualify for this deal.

We got the original deal, saved messing about loading up the car (would have taken 2 trips in a large estate).

Thanks for putting this on again - there have been reports of ordering problems on the net - we phoned and the job was sorted ASAP.

I posted this deal in another thread yesterday. Yes it is available all over the UK as it is a government backed scheme, free delivery though is only for mainland Great Britain

heat added.

Does anybody know why I get a blank shopping basket after putting in my details and agreeing the T&Cs?

This happens in both Chrome and Safari :(

Can this be used for garages? If so can I get someone to fit for me? I'm guessing yes and if so where from and how much average price?

Oh awesome... just what i need!
Heat for you my firend! Well and for me once it's fitted ;)
#11
As I don't have lots of storage space I looked at alternatives and Wickes is actually very competative. Only a few pence more but you obviously need to then transport it yourself.
#12
Does anyone know the exact dimensions of the rolls from N-Power? Want to work out exactly how much i need but due to all the struts and low pitch i know the calculator is going to be way off and i don't want to be left with loads.
#13
Yes, they are on the website. This better stuff than wicked and b and q.

Yes, they are on the website. .


Where? All I can find is the 100m roll is 6.6m2. Would be much easier if they just said "X wide and Y long"
#15
Cut the stuff with a large pair of scissors.
#16
Anyone over 70 or on a qualifying benefit such as JSA, DLA, IS or child or working tax credits to name but a few qualifies to have loft and/or cavity wall insulation Installed completely free of charge.No catches. Just get in touch with any insulation company and they will sort it all out for you. I work in the industry so i know this to be right. When installing loft insulation you need to ensure you have adequate ventilation in the loft and that the pipes are insualted up there or you will have a burst!!
#17
A complete waste of time

They will take your money even if they are out of stock and then wait 2mths to get your money refunded onto your credit card.

AVOID

Complete waste of time with Build Centre. Ordered a month back, money taken out of my account 3 weeks back & not delivered after 3 delivery dates promised. Finally yesterday when they could not confirm teh delivery date I asked for a refund & bought Space Loft insulation rolls from Home base. Ready to go into the loft tomorrow.
#19
Got it the last time when it was £1 a roll. Ordered 3 more to complete the job.

Already had insulation in the loft but now its now a lot warmer.
#20
Give measurements later. Re build centre it depends on site and if you went to homebase then you could always have picked us
#21
Up from build centre. You won't be able to cross layer as easily with space blanket stuff....
#22
I ordered these at the end of October, arrived 3 weeks later in mid November. The Build Centre could only deliver to the roadside with their crane truck.

I ordered the max 29 rolls of 170mm, only just got 5 of those into the loft today!

Seems a lot better quality than the stuff that's already up there, which seems to be almost crumbling in your hand (probably due to age of it) even though it's fibreglass stuff.

In two minds about ripping up some of the old stuff to put this down.
#23
It crumbles because it's rockwool not fibreglass. It's not old, its a quality insulator. You should keep it rolled in the plastic until you have it in the right place to "unleash" it, then slide the plastic out from underneath it.

Don't pull the original stuff up, make sure it's level and add more of this on the top. Don't block any air vent spaces as per the included instruction leaflet.
#24
I ordered this stuff over the phone, don't bother using the web-site.
Ring up your local build centre say you want to buy the rockwoll insulation under the npower scheme
My local build centre couldn't have done more to help.
I rang up on the Wednesday to be told no stock but more coming Friday
Friday morning, they rung me, 12 rolls put to one side
Naively, I didn't realise the size of the rolls, turn up in my car, squeeze 4 in, get home and realise I am not doing that journey 3 times
Ring up the build centre, they delivered on their crane vehicle within 2 hours the rest of the order for free.
Cannot fault them at all
It's hard work, good balance needed too lol and can be awkward depending on the pitch of the roof but well worth doing.
You do get the pack of gloves, goggles and mask but i'd also recommend wearing a long sleeve top and a hat :) You'll need a good, sharp stanley knife and if possible, a pole or brush stale to push it into the bits where you just cannot physically squeeze into.
Be warned, you'll be covered in the stuff but it washes off easily.
Great deal imho

Thanks.

It's the older stuff thats crumbling / coming apart - not opened the rockwool, only just got 5 rolls into the loft to start with (not easy access, long way from where the rolls are stored)
#26
one more tip,use a regular wood saw to cut the rolls into the desired sizes before moving to the loft. maybe you already did. there are the two popular sizes marked on the plastic to help you cut them right.
