What have The Blockheads used and when?

    Week 1

    Bradford – the story behind the stories on The Block

    Wow, what a first week on Australia’s favourite renovation show! First week out and we saw the Blockheads tackling not just a guest bedroom but a full bathroom renovation. Anyone who’s been through a bathroom reno knows how stressful it can be, so we’re really admiring that they managed to get them done (well, all but one) in a week.

    While we loved the final results (personal favourite at the Bradford office was Sticks & Wombat’s mono masterpiece – swooning over that tree tiled feature and the copper fixtures), what we especially loved was all the insulation going around those bathrooms.

    Through the week, in the background behind the main action, we saw Optimo underfloor insulation going under those gorgeous tiles, Bradford Gold batts going into the external walls and ceilings, SoundScreen acoustic insulation going into internal walls, Anticon roofing blanket going under the ColorBond™ roof, and Enviroseal ProctorWrap wall wrap going around the houses as they prepared for the cladding.

    The eventual owners of these homes will be very happy to be not just living in style, but living in comfort in their fully-insulated homes.

    More to come next week!
