Loft insulation -Now what?

The topic has been discussed here previously I think though a trawl revealed nothing of import.

Having had the installer here on Thursday last to put in Free insulation[for the over 70's]

I had to remove pile of material before it could be carried out.

Much of it disposable one way or another - some to the dump other given away via Freecycle/Fregle- I still have a small amount to put back up there.

Before the new installation I had a number of boards across joists as storage platforms- These the installer would not move or replace they simply went over them.

So do I try to retrieve them and relay them over the new insulation and restore that which I wish to retain? Or is using the space not now advised?

You experiences/comments please*strong text*

Nothing out the ordinary then, possibly like most loft spaces. Old obsolete, but well worth saving!.

Perhaps worth a mention, re my previous post on thermal imagers. Your local council (if its big enough) might do periodic air surveys using thermal imager devices etc, so as to see if 'they can obtain better results' for the environment and increase funding.

Your local police helicopter might also oblige in seeking out an heat source from a loft. Its a cruel world out there!.

Ever heard about cannabis farming?.

I do believe you have two brothers in high ranking positions in the Met, perhaps it might be worth asking them about intelligence gathering?.

I have one brother who was in the Met Police - now retired, and one still serving in the MOD Police, but neither of them were/are involved in looking for Cannabis farms.

I've worked closely with people in the construction industry for a number of years. It's surprising how much information you pick up along the way.

Thank you one and all- amazing how such a simple quert can give rise to such diverse comment. All I have to do now is dig down to find those boards.

I suggest you re-read my post. I made no mention of 'trapped' air only "an airspace ... allow air to circulate". Quite a big difference.
