General review of your supplier

We had several local suppliers around to quote and we chose Stuart because he was amenable, knowledgeable and his quote was competitive. He was to install internal wall insulation on all floors of our two storey 1920's detached house. We handled all the mains services and removing / replacing all architrave, skirting etc, leaving Stuart and his team to simply install / plaster and finish.  They worked steadily and were flexible when things didn't go quite right or when we asked them to do extra bits and pieces. They finished the first floor in about 4 weeks and will be doing the second floor later on this year. They used 72.5mm thermal insulation board, though I'm not sure which brand it is. The ground floor's thermal properties have been radically transformed even though we have yet to finish decorating. The whole ground floor is noticeably warmer and rooms heat up very quickly and retain heat for far longer than before. Our kitchen was cold and prone to condensation formation in the winter but is now, with attention also paid to ventilation warm and dry. We have already noticed a reduction in gas use for space heating when compared to last year. Highly recommended. 

What would you have liked to know before you asked suppliers to quote

I would have liked a bit more knowledge on fixing methods and vapour barriers / dew points etc.

Would you use this company again?
