product seems to be a good idea, but not enough infomation on hanging and advice about hanging another wallpaper on top as it pulled it off the wall.

Easy to cut because it has the thick paper backing..which goes to the front! Used a wallpaper paste for heavy embossed papers. Not successful on small pieces. Seems better using PVA adhesive for these.
The internal walls of the gable end certainly feel warmer to the touch.

Had huge difficulty trying to work out what side was suppose to be stuck to the wall. Couldn't get in contact with the firm and had to phone homebase and eventually spoke to someone who knew what side was to be stuck to the wall. Instructions are very, very poor.
However, it certainly keeps the cold out, the wall is no longer cold!

I have just put up some of these rolls for the first time. The instructions with the packaging just says to use glue which doesn't really tell you anything. I didn't like the idea of using coving adhesive as I suspect that this would be difficult to get off the wall again if ever I needed to strip back to plaster. I used ordinary wallpaper paste but mixed it very strong. I didn't measure the mix but to give an idea I mixed it about 25mm deep in a gardening trug and the paste was thick enough so it wouldn't run back into the hole left by a scraper when it was dragged through it. I pasted the wall and the paper and the results were perfect. It stayed on the wall when I put it up and allowed slippage for joining etc. I didn't try to fold it at corners at all just brought it up to all edges and trimmed back. I've papered over with a heavy anaglypta which also went on fine. So in summary my experience is that wallpaper paste works fine but make the mix strong.

Used heavy paper adhesive on both wall and paper.
It lifted in places and had to be reglued.
When thoroughly dry it shrunk opening up gaps between sheets which needed filling and sanding.
Could be because I got it too wet with adhesive.
I recommended it because next time I hope it will be better if I use PVA glue.

Read lots of reviews on many sites before buying this product to insulate a built in wardrobe against an outside wall and must say there were many dissatisfied people. Virtually all had a problem with sticking the product to the wall.
I applied a thin layer of coving adhesive directly to the walls with a tiling trowel and pressed my cut lengths of veneer into place (foam side to the wall). The veneer has stayed firmly fixed and looks like it will stay that way.
It took a lot more effort than normal wall papering, but the surface of walls now feel much warmer and the inside of the wardrobe is not so cold.
Hard work, but would recommend.

Brought this as we were getting surface mould on the inside of an outside wall. The only good thing about this product is that the room feels slightly warmer and definatly warmer to the touch when you feel the wall. However it hasn't stopped the surface mould. I still have to wipe the wall down about once a fortnight.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Saz Would never buy again
Was extremly hard to put up, and when we went into the room the next day the lining paper had come away from the polystyrene backing, which was the only thing left up on the wall. Very poor quality product.
