    Hi folks

    Has anyone had any success finding extruded polystyrene sheets recently.

    The stuff I am on about is the pink or blue sheets used for wall and floor insulation.

    I used to be able to get it at B&Q in 3 packs but now its only the beige foil backed stuff that's more like plant oasis in that it can be rubbed down with a thumb etc.

    I have found some online but its ridiculously expensive for 1 order, i.e a lot of it. and ebay is second hand stuff which I assume is from house clearances and TBH you have no idea what it could have on it, as the pics look like the stuffs got dirt and grime all over them.

    I just wondered if anyone knew of places that sold it in smallish quantities, or like the old 3 pack of 2'*4' etc.

    Thanks all.

    Rick

    I'm up in Aberdeen @suicidal, I have found a place on ebay that sells it, apparently the marks are just from storage and weatering is because they store it outside but cut it to requested sizes, so may not be as dodgy as I assumed :)

    Ill give antenoceiti a go too as I need more Dullcote too :)
