Pro Tips:

  • Maurice, our Technical Director, explains the pros and cons of all the types of underfloor insulation and how to get the best results in the Underfloor Insulation Masterclass. It's free!
  • We recommend polyester insulation be stapled to the joists at 100mm -150mm intervals to ensure it is secure and will not sag over time
  • For the best and long lasting result, make sure the staples being used are galvanised.  We recommend T50 Staples 
  • How many staples do you need? You will need about 340 staples per pack of Value Poly Underfloor Insulation. That's about 47 staples per sq metre.
  • Use a good quality stapler. Trade Quality Stapler Rental is available if you live in Victoria
