Choosing An Insulation Professional In Canterbury
How hard can it be to install insulation yourself? Many DIYers attempt to install insulation rather than hire professionals. What they often fail to realise is that there is a national standard which all insulation fitting needs to meet and often end up putting both their property and their families at risk.
The standard NZS 4246:2006 Installing Insulation in Residential Buildings (NZS 4246:2006 Installing Insulation in Residential Buildings) requires all new and retro fitted insulation to meet these national guidelines by using the right materials for the job and to fit the insulation correctly. Hiring a local insulation professional from within the Christchurch area means that you can be confident that your insulation will meet the required code standards, keeping your family and property safe and warm.
A local batts fitter will also have knowledge about which insulation products are best for use within the Canterbury region and have local contacts where they can purchase insulation at a lower price.
