As promised 5 men on the job today.

Lodger's stay in the hotel extended, she's well happy there!

So much for them doing the job in 2 weeks....

Oh, and i checked with the manufacturer of the Actis Triso Super 10+, the installation of it recommended by the Council building control guy is wrong.

His recommendation of 50mm celotex with this stuff would not have met regs, only because I asked TW to increase it to 100mm as there was space anyway in the rafters means it probably is within regs.

They are kindly doing a u value calculation for me gratis. Said will take 3 or 4 days to get answer.

Why me?  hysteria

Confused why they are using the foil then batten it off when they could have just used more PIR/PUR board?!

Work looks good otherwise.

Is it just that one room?

The multi foil is suppposed to have minimum 25mm air gap either side of it to work properly. The Council building control guy came up with this plan while on site last Tuesday.

The batons being installed are only 15mm. The council guy recommended 12 mm....and only on one side.

The reason this stuff (200 a roll!) was proposed was to minimise loss of room space.

It's the whole top of my home, so 2 bedrooms and the hall space inbetween.

Sounds like, for the u value it will achieve, installing PIR/PUR board would have occupied less space and been cheaper, I suppose its their prerogative, the work does look good which is the most important point.

There is 100mm Celotex between the rafters, behind the really expensive stuff.

Also 20 full boards of 120mm and 40mm in my garden since last Monday, because the boss ordered the wrong stuff  hysteria

Sadly, I'm not allowed to 'acquire it', it's going to their stock yard.
