Are you wondering what to expect? Keep reading to learn how to prepare your attic for insulation installation.
Find a Reliable Insulation Expert
To get attic insulation you can count on, you need to find a trustworthy expert. There are plenty of insulation vendors out there, but some are much more qualified and experienced than others. It's worth spending some time reading online reviews and taking note of accumulative business scores.
This will allow you to find a company that can give you the best insulated attic service on the market. They should also begin the process by offering a thorough inspection beforehand. That way, both the price and the process are as clear as possible.
Declutter the Area
One of the most important ways to prepare for insulation installation is by cleaning out the stuff you may have stored in your attic. People store anything from Christmas decorations and old toys to left over building materials and small pieces of furniture. If you don't have any space for it in the garage or another part of your home, then temporarily renting out storage space may be a good idea.
Upon inspection, a responsible estimator will advise if there are any further preparations required. Many people have never looked in their attic. Items such as plumbing stacks, obsolete chimney chases or electrical junction boxes from old renovations could require attention before the new attic insulation is installed.
Remove Older Insulation When Necessary
In certain cases, removing the old insulation may also be necessary. It is especially true in situations where the old insulation has some degree of toxicity. The last thing you'd want to do is compromise new insulation due to the condition of the old insulation.
Instead of trying to handle this task on your own, it's better to let the professionals handle it. Not only have they been trained to get rid of old insulation, but they're also equipped with the right set of tools. That way, you'll know that the process will go smoothly.
