Cellulose, Rockwool and Batts
In order for us to install new insulation it is necessary for us to inspect the current condition of your existing insulation. The most common types of insulation found in roofs are Cellulose blow in, Rockwool insulation or fibreglass batts. Over time the insulation can settle and collect dust or in some cases rodent droppings which can be harmful to your family's health.
It is recommended to get your insulation inspected if it is over 10 years old. The reason for this is Insulation has improved over the years and it has become a more important part of building a new home. Updated Australian standards allow for a better performing house which can save you and your family more money in regards to your energy output.
Old insulation is removed manually or by using an industrial strength vacuum designed specifically to remove blown in insulation. Most jobs are done externally by removing a small area of roof tiles and cutting the tile batten a specific way in which it can be fixed into position once the job is complete. Once the insulation removal or installation is complete the batten and roof tiles are secured back in place to ensure there will be no leaks.
