Loft & Cavity Wall Insulation Removal - Cavity Insulation Installers

Loft insulation removal costs explained

 27th Jun 2022

Whist loft insulation brings many benefits; there may come a time when it needs to be removed. It could be simply that the homeowner wishes to upgrade their existing loft insulation to a higher grade to save money on their energy bill. Alternatively, it may be a result of another problem, such as a vermin infestation or damaged insulation resulting from an external roof leak.

Unfortunately, no loft insulation lasts forever and will need replacing at some point. Whatever the reason, there are, of course, some costs involved in removing it.


What factors affect the cost of removing loft insulation?

Several factors will affect how much you pay to have your loft insulation removed. These include:

  • How accessible your loft is. If your loft space is challenging to get to or unusually small, it may take longer to access.
  • How much insulation there is to remove.
  • What type of insulation needs removing. Some insulation types are more complicated to remove than others, and therefore, the job will take longer.
  • The condition of the insulation to be removed. If your existing insulation is in bad shape, it could be dangerous to remove and dispose of it.

How much will it cost?

With all the above factors considered, the average price customers pay to have their loft insulation removed is £500-£750 based on a three-bedroom semi-detached property. For an accurate quote and more information, please contact us.

The price you pay may vary depending on any extra services you require as part of the insulation removal. For example, loft cleaning, boards if needed, or specialist equipment to remove old insulation.

Can I remove loft insulation myself?

Because of the health and safety precautions you should take, we would not recommend any unqualified individual remove loft insulation themselves. Whilst it might appear to be an excellent way to save money, insulation contains irritants such as fibreglass and rock wall, which are extremely dangerous if breathed in. Always appoint a professional who will be fully equipped to handle loft insulating materials safely.
