Loft insulation can help to boost energy efficiency. When it has been installed incorrectly or it becomes damaged it can cause problems. It will then need to be removed.
If left unchecked, loft insulation that needs removing can even affect the structural integrity of the home and potentially lead to costly repairs. Loft insulation that becomes damp, for example, can lead to dampness and mould within properties.
Whether you simply need loft insulation temporarily removing so tradespeople can gain better access, or you need loft insulation taken out due to damage, we can provide you with exactly what you need.
Loft insulation that is suitable for your property and has been installed properly, should last for over 40 years.
But that is not always the case. There are numerous reasons why your loft insulation may not be performing as it should, including:
The material has become damaged over time. Loft insulation that was laid many years ago does need replacing, especially if long-lasting materials were not used initially. Materials naturally degrade, but by replacing them you can start to reap the benefits again. It does pay for itself over time.
Insulation wasn’t installed correctly initially. Badly fitting or loose insulation means that heat is still allowed to escape through your roof. While it can help reduce bills, you’re not fully benefiting from the investment that you’ve made.
Damage has led to the material absorbing water. Wet insulation can lead to damp spreading throughout the house, and can cause other problems within properties.
The insulation has become damaged during repair work. Work taking place in your loft can mean that the insulation becomes damaged if it isn’t removed first, meaning it’ll deteriorate and allow heat to escape quicker. This can also occur when you lay new insulation over the top of old material, hiding existing damage.
Alternatively, you might just need your loft insulation to be removed for a short-space of time, allowing for work to be carried out within your loft space.
If that’s the case, we can still help you and re-install the insulation once the work has been completed.
