Is the house already built? Is it a tin or concrete roof?

Polystyrene you must be joking. Just buy batts as you would in the west.

I'm guessing they mean the expanded polystyrene? (Aeroboard). Is the problem rodents chewing through it or what?

How about this stuff? I know it costs a lot more but works very well.

OK ali b, I've done all the leg work for you, not because I like you but because I want to claim the large finders fee that you are offering.


The first two photoes are at 102 Mou se Toung , opposite the Parkway center. 1.2 m wide by 50 m roll. price $137.

Third photo is at 148 Mou Se Toung about 50 m from the first shop. 1.2 m wide by 50 m long roll, priced at $125.

Good on you dunc, I would like to have a drink with you. Rock wool is great insulation and very cheap compared to the west. Polystyrene and silver paper, give me fucking strength.

I would suggest you search an expert to install and the expert you can find out by searching on Google. There are so many websites which help to search these services.
