Just make sure the installers are well trained.

There is several investigations going on where installers have stapled foil based insulation through power cables therefore making the batts live. I believe people have been hospitalised due to receiving significant electic shocks.

Obviously insurance will be an important part of any business which involves homes, climbing in roof spaces etc.

Check out the following articles:

Hope it all works out if you decide to proceed.
