yea - you'd better check - link to deal

thanks for humouring me X)

no its one big roll that you can cut into 3, which is what you can do with all the rolls, so no its just one roll

Depends on their definition of a roll, and its the bad one IE it's actually £3 for a full roll. If you cut it in three then its £1 for each of those smaller rolls.

IE 5.5m2 is going to cost £3 not £1

It's still a good price, but not quite the deal they try to make it sound.

Oh no, not again! I've given heat and everything. lol

You're right though, split into 3 is the norm for these big rolls.

thanks for that too - and your help - appreciate you being constructive and not slagging me off - ta

Been like this for a while. check out the npower deal for free delivery and safety kit to install it.

I bought this stuff for the same price last time it was in store.

Very impressed. The big roll splits easily into three smaller ones, usually the width between your loft joists. You may need to use a saw to cut the big roll into smaller ones, which is quite easy to do.

When you unroll it in the loft, it swells to quite an impressive size, plenty deep enough. While it's not like the old horrible glass-fibre (??) insulation stuff, it's still best to wear gloves and a face mask. And I had to take a shower straight after laying it.

Overall, an excellent buy at this price. Go for it! (Oh, and if you're an oldie like me, remember your 10% discount on Wednesdays!)

If you go for this or similar delivery, make sure you estimate your needs accurately. Measure IN THE LOFT, not underneath. I found that it is impossible to access all my loft space - so if I had measured "downstairs" and so ordered too much, I would have been stuck with it.

If you can, I'd go for the npower/Build Centre deal myself

npower.com/web…htm

Unless you have your own van, a pickup of 14 rolls of insulation is a nightmare. There is a calculator and installation guide on there if you are a DIY novice..

Thanks, I had a pipe burst in the loft last week after the 1st thaw and I had to throwout a load of wet sodden loft insulation, just ordered 3 x rolls for £8.99 delivered. Thanks, you have saved me time and money.

The B&Q advert in yesterday's Mail says the large rolls are already precut into 3,so much better as they make alot of mess when you cut them in the loft.

There are two types the one listed here are 3 rolls sealed in one tube wrapping for £3 and are 200mm thick, there is another single roll (overlay) which is 170mm thick and costs £3.17 I bought five of the 170mm thick ones that they were a doodle to put out, very simple and seems OK so far... fitted 5 in my Honda Jazz safe and sound I might add.

I used 3.5 rolls in a 3 bed house - (not a tiny 3 bed).

Wowhats

Yep, even as I typed "it swells to quite an impressive size" I thought, "Oh Gawd, that will get them going!!"

And now I read the rest of it, I realise I was just digging deeper and deeper . . .

Anyway, I've had it up in the loft for quite a while now, and I can promise you that the quicker you get laid the more rewarding it will be. X)

I have used this stuff (see my post #14). The rolls are NOT cut all the way through. They are cut NEARLY all through. You will probably need a saw to finish the cut, but it is very easy.

Hey, you're supposed to fit it in your LOFT, not your car!

Just been and picked mine up ordered 8 rolls but took six as this is all i could get in the car !!!!

Hey, you're supposed to fit it in your LOFT, not your car!



Have you ever driven a Honda Jazz in these adverse weather conditions, its not the warmest car on the road ;-)

If you find you have over-estimated and have spare, just add another layer, or part layer. If you only have enough to do a bit of an extra layer, add it over your bedroom.

If you have pipes in the loft make sure you lage them well as the loft space is going to get colder with the new lagging (and the new extreme winter we have now).

Don't lay insulation under any cold water tanks or they might freeze.

dont forget to stick some insulation into a black bag ans stape it to the back of the lof hatch to insulate that on the cheap.

Do you have to be a NPower customer or is this open to everyone?

Nice late minute stocking filler for the mrs!!!! cheers heat added!!!!

There are many grants available for loft insulation (and other energy saving measures), people on benefits and pensioners can get their lofts done for free and even working home owners can get discounted rates. See if your eligible here energysavingtrust.org.uk/Eas…ase

the hubby got this last time it was on offer and said it was great, precut and easy to work with, good stuff!

I got these about 15 months ago and ordered 35 rolls thinking they were standard size, the mrs rang me at work and said "what the **** have you done now" , as the driver proceeded to unload three pallets into the frot garden.LOL

However i double lagged and had about six full rolls spare which I sold, I reckon it saved me £200 last winter on fuel, my bills were considerably lower and it was a cold winter.

(forgot to mention mine was on the build centre deal that was posted on HUKD)

be careful how well you insulate your loft , i did mine when the n power offer was on , its really cold in the loft now and ive got condensation on the felt and timbers which turns to mold

you need to ensure good ventilation in the loft - a couple of air bricks, roof vents etc....

Build Center stuff is much better

kept it from the eaves , and it was ok before i put the extra insulation in , so just be careful , these regulations about how much insulation you should have can cause other problems , i think i,m going with the air bricks in the gables easier to install myself and cheaper

No, you don't have to be Npower customer. It's nothing to do with them, or anyone other than B&Q.

Just go to B&Q - no problems.

Insulate your loft and fork out hundreds replacing guttering damaged by snow build up or dont insulate and waste hundreds in heating bills?

the one very smug old man in my street who refused insulation cos its overkill was loving the fact everyone else has damage to guttering caused by blanketing your loft to a extent snow wont melt

T fish that is a good story, how long did it take to make that up. First off hundreds on guttering? Second whole st? Damage - how do you know, will still be snowy according to you. Are you saying gutter has all fallen off? If so I suspect you live in a lego house.
N power stuff for me anytime. Oh and remember which ever you choose, cut the roll while it is wrapped! Not at all messy.
Idea is 100mm between joints and 170 cross layered.
