Removal of existing insulation
Lewis Insulation can remove your existing insulation if need be, due to water or fire damage. In older homes, it is sometimes necessary for the existing insulation to be removed in order to install a vapor barrier which completely seals the entire attic.
Why Insulation Removal?
There are three main reasons to have insulation removed from an attic:
- Over Insulation
- Damaged/Contaminated Insulation
- Upgrading Insulation
We often see attics that are strewn with animal feces from squirrel, raccoon, bat and mice infestations. In these cases the droppings and urine deposits often create strong odors and can be hazardous. Sometimes its a home improvement project that warrants removing and replacing the insulation in an attic. Other times it is something as simple as old blown insulation trickling out of cracks around light fixtures and attic doors.
Why not just go over the old insulation with a new layer?
When you install a layer of brand new insulation directly over the top of old filthy insulation that is strewn with years worth of dust and animal droppings you are creating a "Bacterial Lasagna" in your attic. This can negatively effect the energy conservation and air quality of your home. It can also create moisture problems and in turn generate staining in drywall ceilings. Do you really want this situation in your home?
