    I hate the one Iv'e just been in, put 8 fire rated bathroom downlights in, ceiling has in the past been boarded over twice then plaster and lathe, attic is full of black dust, I looked like I'd been down the mine. argggg

    Im still going into them most days at 63, no point going to work in good clothes. Fibreglass is a pain to work in. My pet hate is wasps (terrified of them) & ill get out the quickest way possible.

    Don't you just love it when you go to quote a rewire & customer says we've just had insulation installed.

    Sinewave, I much prefer the fire rated on all jobs now, they seem more robust and if somebody just chucks some carp through the loft hatch there is less chance of something untoward.
