    About our prices

    Prices are per m² and inclusive of GST. They’re supplied by the manufacturer or distributor and indicative only. Installation costs may be additional.

    POA stands for “price on application”. Some manufacturers don’t supply estimates of price per m² for their products, so you may have to ask in-store. A few of these products can only be installed by specialists, so installation cost is tied up with product cost – these specialists should usually provide free quotes.

    easy fast install DIY

    Pros

    It was good price per sq meter. reasonably none irritant. It was easy to rip to size I needed. It expanded to pretty close to size stated. Some segments were thinner than stated. Bags were nice strong so they didnt burst .

    Cons

    I had mid itch around my wrists were skin was exposed. i wore long sleeved clothing and painters overalls over top. But as I stretched around roof couple spots got in contact with skin.

    Not products fault but because I was retro fitting over old bradford gold ( 16 year old stuff had collapsed flat to nothing).The glass fibre dust from old insulation was horrific. The fibres were showing up in work lights beam. I had proper rubber dust mask and filters .Got irritation around face from that and extremely hot probably..
