    Did you try and "fluff" it up? I used Knauf 100mm base layer + 170mm top up. After I laid a roll out, I'd pick up the top layers and fluff it up a bit (only gently). It was full thickness pretty much immediately.

    For the EPC, the surveyor's head will spend all of 2 seconds in the loft. Just make sure the bit round the hatch looks half decent.
