Pests love old attic insulation because it can become a haven! They can eat through old insulation and leave behind waste. Rodents, bugs, and other pests can then create other problems in your home by getting into the walls and chewing through electrical wiring and your home's siding.
Pests reproduce too, and once a few get comfortable, they multiply.
Water Damaged Attic or Roof
Wet insulation is a poor insulator. You might have a leaky attic that has damaged your insulation and not even know it!
An inspection can determine where water is getting inside your home and the extent of the damage. You will want to call a professional to examine the roof or attic, remove the damaged insulation and replace it with new, effective insulation.
Icicles are pretty to look at, but they are a sign your house needs new insulation!
Icicles and ice damming form when warm air escapes your home, heats the roof, melts the snow, and then icicles form. This is a clear sign that your attic insulation is failing and needs to be replaced.
