" Great price and product. Looked around and wikes was the best price by far. Only gripe was it was not on display in the shop so I had to click and collect I.e they had it in the store room. Service was as good as ever. "

Pros: clean, flexible, easy to use, easy to fix, easy to cut
Cons: not enough pads for more than one radiator
" I used this Thermal Foil to insulate the inside of an airing cupboard built in a loft space. The product needed to be flexible, easy to use and above all clean (no transfer of fibre etc.). Thermal Insulation Foil achieved all of this and is easy to fix (I used double sided tape). A Great product at a Great price. "

Pros: is very easy to cut to any shape
Cons: none that i can think of
" This is great to put under the loft flooring boards as it will compress and make an air tight seal and stop those unwanted drafts. I also stapled it onto the rafters to stop any dust falling down on those windy days we get occasionally "

Pros: perfect for the job
Cons: its a shame it was so pricey for what it is
" I ordered this on line for the roof in the loft, it came the next day as promised and was well packaged.
It was really easy to use and easy to staple to the rafters and did the job perfectly.
I had previously used an alternative lining and it was thin and difficult to use.
This was perfect.

" Foil backing is to one side only. Very flimsy and easy to snag. As a loft liner it will need more than just staples to hold it up for years to come. Really should have battens applied to the underside of the rafters and screw them on.
.
The competing product sold by another well known chain with an '&' in their name is far better and slightly cheaper per metre. The principle benefits of the competitor's product is that there is foil on both sides and it will tolerate more abuse before it tears. The double layer of foil also means it has a higher insulation rating.

Pros: next day dilivery.
" Good stuff. Silver on one side only. Does full length of small detached house roof space. I stapled to roof joists. Easy to put up. Brightens loft space due to reflecting light. Wife says looks like the inside of a spaceship now. Stops dust falling from roof. Next day dilivery from Wickes. Polite carriers. Arrived well packaged and perfect condition. Text to tell me of arival day. Also e-mail to inform of dispatch. Wickes OK to deal with. Would use again. "

Pros: very easy to install
Cons: none that i can think of
" This was easier then i thought to put over the rafters in my loft to exclude the draughts from the holes in the roof lining.
I used about 6 rolls in total for a 3 bedroom mid terrace.It was very easy to staple to the rafters.One roll covered a whole width and a half across.I used about 2 rolls of duck tape to go over the joins.I would definately recommend this to anyone wanting some extra insulation at rafter level.It took a good afternoon to do, and i did have some help too!
I ordered this online and it came the next day so the service was excellent too.Ordered too many rolls so just took the extra ones back to the local store for a refund.

" This product is easy to use and install. It cah be stapled in place over studwork or roof beams without cutting to fit between the timbers. Ceiling or Wall panels can then be screwed in place over the top of the foil. IN this way air can circulate behind the foil for ventilation to avoid condensation, with the foil providing excellent heat reflecting as well as insulation from the cold. "

Pros: easily laid
Cons: none reallly!
" Purchased 9 rolls of Wickes mineral loft insulation encased in plastic film . Had to reject 2 deliveries as the plastic (easily torn) was badly shredded thereby exposing the fibrous wool. Customer service excellent in eventually providing an acceptable product. Now to the good part - it was easily laid and cut, and (if or) when we get cold weather we should definitely feel the benefit. And it was 'bogof' so exceedingly good value! "

Pros: great value, easy to install
Cons: won't improve insulation much
" We have an old house with no felt lining under the roof tiles. Consequently the plaster from the bottom of the tiles is constantly crumbling making the loft a dirty and unpleasant place even after boarding it. This stuff seemed to be the cheapest possible solution and it was so easy to fit. We used 12 rolls to cover our 3 bed semi and are delighted with the results. It probably won't do a great deal to our heating bills but as a cheap top up it is ideal. "
