Insulation Removal Services Across Southern Ontario

For many Ontario homeowners, insulation is out of sight and out of mind until a problem occurs. However, small observations may be symptoms of a larger insulation problem.


SIGNS YOUR INSULATION NEEDS REPLACEMENT

There are many small signs and symptoms that can be noticed in your home or office that your insulation needs to be removed, replaced or added to. Have you noticed uneven temperatures throughout your home? Are there drafts in certain areas or hallways? Have you noticed a spike in your utility bill or the sounds of critters scampering around your attic? It may be time to  and replace your insulation. 


Knowing a little more about your insulation also goes a long way in protecting it and fixing problems early. If you are not your property’s first homeowner, find out how long it has been since the insulation was replaced, figure out what type of insulation is used (there may be several different types throughout the house), and if it’s accessible, see if there are signs of mould, moisture damage, or infestation. If you’re not sure about the state of your insulation, you can ask us. Addressing these signs with an insulation contractor will give you a better understanding of the root of the problem for every unique situation.


COMMON REASONS WE REMOVE & REPLACE INSULATION

There are many common reasons that we are needed to remove insulation from homes or offices. While Mother Nature can be unpredictable, certain troublesome issues can be addressed by contacting a professional to evaluate the previously completed work and prevented by replacing poor or outdated insulation. Some of the common reasons for insulation removal in Ontario are:

  • WATER & STORM DAMAGE:
    Heavy rains, flooding, and snowmelt from our infamous Ontario winters can leak into old roofs and soak certain types of insulation, damaging it and making it necessary to remove and replace. Insulation is not only a solution for temperature problems, but it can also protect against moisture damage or insulate you from noise. Storms can strike all year round and we believe that preventative maintenance will not only save your wallet but your treasured belongings as well.


  • SMOKE DAMAGE:
    If a fire takes place on the property, your insulation may be damaged by smoke - especially in the attic where smoke rises. It must then be completely removed to rid the property of the lingering smell of smoke and replaced with fresh insulation. While it is being replaced or if you’re interested in preventing the worst case scenario, we also offer fireproofing services to protect your insulation from fire damage. The fireproofing coating also makes your insulation look more aesthetically pleasing!


  • STRUCTURAL CHANGES:
    Renovation projects involve taking apart walls and building new spaces, so if you’re adding cathedral ceilings and need to restructure your attic or roof, it may be time to remove insulation. Replacing old insulation during a basement renovation can also help reduce moisture and ensure a consistent temperature throughout your entire home. 


  • ELECTRICAL WORK:
    Many electricians will not service your utilities unless the insulation has already been removed. It is also a good safety precaution to remove insulation first before undertaking any sort of electrical work.


  • PEST & ANIMAL INFESTATION:
    Rodents, insects, and other wildlife may have damaged your insulation to build their nests in attics and basements. Animal droppings can be harmful to your health, but professionals like our team at Reitzel Insulation have the proper equipment to protect ourselves, you, and your property from disease-causing substances.
