    No its a good idea, you can buy the loft insulation type stuff, and pack it in. Its just keeping it in place mate, slate batons may do the job, but then your going to need to be underthe floor to screw them to the bottom of the joists and by the sound of it a bit at a time. Is it drafts, or...

    Concrete House - Wall Vents Required?

    Hi, if it is a concrete house with no cavity...block them up...apart from the one near the dont have coal fires, so i see no reason to vent the other rooms, If you do have a cavity, you need to remove any liner to allow them to vent the cavity but you can block the internal holes up.

    black mould and insulation

    HI, you need to find the source of the damp. having a rad on the wall maybe dragging out the damp. is it tracking in under the window. You could remove the tiles from the outside, insulate, tack on some visqueen or other dpm, replace tile baton and re-tile then silicone under the window.

    garage door.

    I take it your on about cutting into three and lifting them out from the top. In which case would it not be as easy to cut 2 vertical lines and push them out, then undo the bolts and take out the remaining. Unless you need to save bits to go over the door frame as sometimes there is an...

    Damp - caused by cavity insulation?

    Hi, i have said this before i am not a fan of this new fad of cavity insulation. Your cavity is there for a reason and that reason is to stop damp on the inner leaf of your house, It is also vented, so any damp in the cavity dries out. When we build houses we have to build by various...
