  1. The build up of the loft space where my MVHR and hot water cylinder are going was going to be like this: Steico Flex has been in short supply for months. We placed the order at the beginning of August and were told it was a 10-12 week lead time but we would have it in October. Today my builder got a call from the supplier who cancelled the order. Calling round today we are getting even longer lead times of 12-14 weeks (From now). My builder is in a rush and wants to use PIR instead of the 140mm Steico Flex. I'm not keen on this at all because this build up was designed (together with the external layers of the roof such as the sarking board) to give us a decrement delay of about 8.5 to 9.5 hours. Not as good as the ideal 11h, but still much much better for keeping the house cool than PIR. My builder says it's just the MVHR and hot water cylinder room so it doesn't need to be kept cool. There is not much linear metres of MVHR pipe in that room, as although all the pipes start and end there, they leave the MVHR room within 3m or 4m at most. We have enough Steico flex for the the actual living spaces in the roof (where the build up is 160mm of steico instead of 140mm and we also have additional 40mm of hard wood fibre, so 200mm in total). What should I do: just make the builder's life easy and go with PIR for the section of the roof that encloses the MVHR and cylinder room, or try and find an alternative supplier or alternative product? (I've already called 4 suppliers any nobody has Steico flex in supply.)
  2. Hey everyone. I am on the case trying to find a good reasonably priced source for Pavaflex/Pavatherm - can anyone advise? We've found some online that would be shipped from afar. Our house is 150sqm and the cost is currently sitting around about 13k-15k for the insulation. Would love to be able to shave some off that... We have quite strict planning conditions and our wall build up all relies on this product, so there's no option to change the material (before anyone suggests we use Kingspan!) Any advice on sourcing this and installing it would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance. Joanna
