Insulation Removal

Over time, your attic insulation becomes dusty and starts to decompress due to the moisture build-up that rises to the attic. Insulation has a life expectancy of 20+ years. At this point, you may start to notice the R-Value (thickness of insulation) shrink down in size. If this is a concern, here are a few things to observe and avoid significant issues. You may notice grey or black stains on the ceiling, cold drafts, rising energy bills, odd musky smells, excessive dust in the interior home, and condensation-wet spots.

Old decomposed insulation may cause:

Essentially, if your insulation has endured these other scenarios it may need replacement

Rodent damage

Our team specializes in rodents residing in your attic or crawlspace. Squirrels, mice, raccoons, bats, and possums love the insulation as a place of comfort and shelter leaving behind toxic droppings and urine in the insulation, causing an endless cycle of future rodent attraction and entry to your attic. This may cause dangerous and damaging circumstances to the health and well-being of you and your home. The insulation is a nesting ground for rodents and can lead to many other issues if they are free to reside such as chewing wires, causing fires, puncturing air ducts, scratching holes in sheetrock, and spreading parasites and diseases. If you are experiencing these issues, the insulation should be removed by a professional immediately.

Water damage

It’s very common for water to end up in your attic and damage your insulation. Whether it’s a roof leak, HVAC leak, or leaky pipe this may cause mold, fungus, or mildew growth in your insulation quite rapidly. If you start to notice a black or greyish layer on your insulation, this may be mold breeding in your insulation material and should be replaced by a professional immediately to avoid other expensive repairs to the construction of your home.

Condensation

One of the most important things to be aware of is proper airflow. If your attic is not correctly vented and relieved of the excessive heat and moisture build-up in your attic, it may cause condensation on your insulation and roof. This can result in similar issues like water damage, causing mold spores to grow and breed in your insulation and break down the life expectancy of your insulated attic.
