Q: Can Value Poly Underfloor Insulation be used in my Climate Zone?
A: Value Poly Polyester Underfloor Insulation can be used in climate zones 4, 6, 7, & 8. That covers all of Victoria.
Q: Do you have a warranty for the underfloor insulation rolls?
A: Value Poly Polyester Underfloor Insulation has a manufacturer warranty of 50 years (T&C’s apply).
Q: What about the installation, is there a warranty for underfloor insulation?
A: As it is a DIY product, we cannot provide an installation warranty, as the installation process is outside of our control. We only had two situations where the insulation did not hold up (when properly installed) - one was from a tradesperson actively taking it down, the other was a wombat.
Q: Is Value Poly Polyester Underfloor Insulation easy to install?
A: Installing underfloor insulation may be easy or challenging depending on your home's specific attributes. These include the height of the space beneath the floor, the spacing of the joists and any access issues. If you have questions about installation, please do not hesitate to contact us. We also offer an Underfloor Insulation Masterclass that draws upon two decades of installation knowledge. Visit www.ecoMaster.com.au/ecoMasterClass
Q: What staples do I need and how many will I need?
A: T50 Staples were the staples of choice of the ecoMaster installation crews and are the size used for most good staplers. You will need about 340 staples per pack of Value Poly Underfloor Insulation. That's about 47 staples per sq metre.
Q: What is the difference between Value Poly and the other under floor insulations?
A: Good question. Valuepoly is an excellent choice for those individuals who want all the benefits of a great polyester underfloor product but at a more affordable price. When budget is a priority Value Poly is the best choice.
Q: What is the difference between Value Poly and Polymax?
A: They are similar products. They have the same R value and are made from the same base materials. Both have a minimum of 45% recycled content.
Polymax has a nominal loft of 140mm (there are some variations), we recommend that you open the packs a day or two prior to installation to allow it to re-loft.
Value Poly may have a small amount of compression (it has not been vacuum packed) and may be slightly less than full loft (120mm) when first removed from the insulation bag.
The length of each roll of underfloor insulation depends upon the manufacturer - so check the Specs Tab carefully.
Value Poly is available in Victoria only. If you are living outside of Victoria and wish to order Value Poly, please contact the team for a discussion about freight alternatives.
Polymax is available Australia wide - Victoria, NSW, QLD, ACT, SA and WA.
Q: How long will it take for my order to be delivered?
A: Currently the lead time is 1-2 days from the time of payment before your insulation can be delivered.
We may be able to deliver in a shorter time period - please ask!
