    cheapest place to buy celotex/kingspan boards 11th Aug 18 at 4:25 PM
    I was going to post in the 'I wanna buy it' section, but thought a lot of you in here discuss building works, insulation so may get a better response. Am after a lot of sheets (possibly 20 boards) for a garden room, wheres best to get that sort of quantity please? Ideally after 75mm thick boards

    I'd play off the likes of Travis Perkins, Jewsons, Buildbase, etc against each other getting them to undercut each time. Don't forget to get free delivery.

    Have a look at Seconds and Co. Kingspan and celotex seconds that meet or exceed regs.

    This stuff is expensive at the moment.

    Quick look on Seconds and they want 33 for a 70/80 board but terms say plus VAT and plus a 40 plus VAT delivery fee.

    Even with a basic account at Travis I'd pay 33 plus VAT with free delivery over 50 and for 20 boards could squeeze a further discount out of them.

    Another one for Seconds and Co.

    Apart from Cambabest in Birmingham if you're local-ish. Not entirely sure how they're in business and customer service definitely isn't fabulous, but for a bulk order...

    I've used insulation4less a couple of times buying boards for my kitchen and bathroom walls. Had no trouble.

    I have trade accounts with the big merchants from doing a self build recently and I
    do haggle between them. For your run of the mill stuff like this however, I find there is not much play in the price I

    Cheapest by a far margin for me was Gumtree, 12 boards of new 75mm Celotex close to half price of the merchants best price
