    Unhappy Gov. rebate insulation...

    I was reading an article today about some of these dodgy roof insulation jobs and couldn't believe that some of them were just chucking insulation foil over the studs...like just using a nail gun to do it... Is this all they were doing? Imagine if you put a nail through a live wire. If you didn't kill yourself then the next person in the roof is screwed. Did anyone here get this sort of thing done in their homes?

    I think we are lucky to have so few die as it is...

    It is the worst organised government scheme I have ever heard of. Electrified houses , a number of people dead , constant house fires....and yet the man responsible for it still has a job.

    QLD use foil unlike the rest of us who use Batts. They are supposed to use plastic staples so that if they hit a power cable they dont get fried. But metal are easier to get hold of

    There are still insulation related house fires on a consistant basis because these dills simply put batts over downlights.

    I could post pages of disasters but its been done in other threads. I feel sorry for the families of those killed while working in this poorely run and organised mess.

    It would be good to see the police start laying charges against the cowboys responsible. Those crooks who took the money and cheated on the job need to be held to account.
    Reality is an invention of my imagination.
