Hey all,

I'm insulating like mad over the next few days. From browsing the forum i'm doing a layer of thermawrap, that celotex stuff followed by another layer of thermawrap and all sealed with the foil tape. Is this a good way to do it?

Also the main thing i need to know is what thickness of celotex board should i be using? Bought 50mm thick at the moment but haven't got that far yet so can always take it back if its too thick.

Many thanks,
Markus :)

I'm doing mine the same way as you with regards to the kingspan stuff think it's 25mm for the top and 50mm for bottom

just keep in mind that its dead air pockets that insulate , not the ammount of stuff you can ram into crevices ect . a few layers of dead air space is better than a complete space rammed with wool for instance T:

you can pick it up from screwifx and toolstation im sure
i have seen people seal the edges of celotex with masking tape before and they seem to know what they were doing
