Services and Insulation Company
Why remove existing insulation?
We don’t always recommend the removal of existing insulation, but there are situations when this should be considered:
- Insulation products can break down over time becoming less effective than new
- Contamination from bats / rodents leaving fecal matter effecting human health
- When mold is discovered on roof decking, framing or under existing insulation
- If the attic is insulated with a hazardous form of vermiculite containing asbestos
Vermin love to nest in attics, and often leave behind harmful bacteria from fecal matter that can turn to airborne spores that contaminate a homes air supply. Removing affected insulation, cleansing with a strong germicide, and closing off openings to prevent further infestation may be needed to ensure a healthy attic space. Check with your insurance company to see if coverage is provided for these types of damages.
We can remove contaminated insulation, airseal and re-insulate your attic for better energy savings and improved living conditions.
"The guys were extremely professional and did a great job. My crawl is more of a "crouch"/"walk" space which always seemed to have water around the walls after a rain. They installed pipes and a sump pump to get rid of the moisture and sealed the space. They also eliminated drafts within the house and sealed can lights on the second floor through the attic. We could tell the difference in cooling with 1 day. The crawl is now dry even after a heavy rain. I would recommend this company to anyone."
