In the attic and roof cavity, Canada Green Insulation Inc. recommends insulation removal in a variety of scenarios. In fact, insulation removal is an ideal option when renovations are underway or when retrofitting is being considered. Regardless of the problem, it’s important to do the work right from day one.

Our overall approach to insulation removal is not only unique, but highly recommended. With attic insulation removal in GTA, Canada Green Insulation Inc. begins with an in-depth inspection of the space. This allows for an accurate assessment of conditions, including the existing insulation as well as the physical structure. At this stage, our experienced team will determine if insulation removal is required, or if a “topping up” approach will suffice. Beyond insulation, we inspect for air leakage and energy efficiency, where additional retrofitting (air sealing and mechanical ventilation) may be required.
With attic insulation removal, a professional approach to removal and re-installation is preferred. The experts have the right equipment and expertise. Removing insulation can be risky and dangerous, particularly if the existing insulation materials are contaminated. Even worse, there could be residual asbestos or other substances.
For the most part, it’s unwise to simply remove old insulation and replace with new materials.
