Sounds like you need to change your insurance company.

Presumably you will hav...

Just the ridged plastic type will do. Fairly cheap and it is just to protect the cable and let you draw a new one through if you should wish to. You can buy it in almost any electrical store in roll

There is no problem leaving the 'under the tiles insulation' provided there is a small air gap at the eaves to permit roof space ventilation. However 270mm of ceiling insulation sounds a lot and unless your ceiling is a structural one if you want to or should need to go into the roof space then you ...

There a plenty of 'rubber type' specialist gym floor coverings on the market. I have not had chance to investigate Bulgaria yet or their cost, but I think the floor will be possible for you. On the net just type in Gym flooring and you will get quite a few to look at.

New DIY store in Borgas opens

The DIY chain store Praktiker has just opened a new store in Borgas. It is similar to Mr Bricolage and the closest UK equivalent would be B&G I think. Well worth a look anyway.
