Hello all
Great to have as much feedback as I can with ref to the above subject
For a typical house (3 bedrooms)

How much does it cost (£) to insulate a loft - guide only please, I believe two layers 1/ 100mm, 2/ 200mm
Ignore the labour element please, just middle of the range material .

How many metres would I need, again an average size home (3 bedrooms)

How long in time would It take if the space was clear, with no obstacles, or at least very few?.

Very importantly for those who do this day in, day out, do you bury electrical cables?
Great to read your feedback/s .
ps, as much info as possible please.

Strikes me it's not for OP's own house, he's looking to quote for a job when he doesn't have a clue. Pardon me for breathing, if incorrect.

tonk, look at it this way, how do you realistically expect to get "as much info as possible please" when you do not give enough information in the first place?
Also it's "the old chestnut" of "how long is a piece of string"

You (or anyone) should never ask on any forum how much is it to have xyz done since suppose person "R" said it was £L and person "P" said it was £LL what will you say to the person who has done the job? You can not really say Person "R" said it was only £L
Then there is access to the job (the premises) and now you have to consider "Waste disposal" not to mention labour rate for the part of the country where the job is.

Fret not, a forum is a collection of opinions. Above, are mine.

Which is correct? Metre or Meter? Click the link to find out more.

Working on anything electrical? have you got a multi meter? why not? Would you hit a nail with a shoe?

If gloom had a voice, it would be me. :mrgreen:
