Posted By: mike7I wondered if you might have any comments on the cavity insulation that I could pass on to the owner - or the builder.
Posted By: mike7could be worse ... insulation in the old ceiling.

Posted By: gravelldBuilders should be engineers really,
Posted By: gravelldI wonder if a mass educational "reset" of the trades are required.
Posted By: Nick ParsonsBut from whom do the ''new, wet behind the ears youth'' learn their 'site behaviour'? Nah, don't do it that way - trust me; I've been doing this for years!
Posted By: fostertomGo for it! Perfect pretext to bite the bullet and do the pukka job that you'll never regret, rather than fiddly/holey/leaky/half-measure.Glue/screw 11 OSB over the rafters, yes insulation full-fill between (from above), but primarily effectively EWI on top of the OSB, then breather, downslope battens, re-lay tiles but higher up, solve verge/eave/chimney abutment situations. Forget insulating in the boxed-in eaves - now part of the internal environment - storage maybe?
Posted By: djhPosted By: Nick Parsonsindeed it looks like quilt, not dense battsNow that I look again, it actually looks like it might be Knauf Dritherm, so perhaps best to double-check before I swear about that particular aspect.http:///newforum/extensions/Vanillacons/smilies/standard/bigsmile.gif" alt="" title="" >
Posted By: mike7My stirring has produced some result - additional wool has been stuffed into the gaps between each layer, so it looks better superficially, but I'll bet it is only for the first few inches.
