When & Why Does Insulation Need To Be Removed?
In many cases, it is possible to simply add more insulation to your current attic insulation or wall insulation to achieve the desired R-value. In other cases, the insulation may be damaged or there may be other valid reasons to remove it first, then re-insulate. Insulation removal may be necessary when:
- The insulation is wet or has water damage
- The insulation is contaminated with mold or mildew
- Pests like rodents have contaminated the insulation with droppings
- The insulation contains dangerous materials like asbestos
- The insulation is torn, compressed or has suffered smoke damage
- A vapor barrier is present on current insulation and is not removable
Our experts can safely remove your existing insulation and prepare the area for new, high-performance alternatives. Contact us today to learn which insulation products are right for your New York home.

Frequently Asked Insulation Removal Questions
Can you add new insulation over old?
Yes, as long as the existing insulation is not wet, damaged or contaminated with things like asbestos, pest droppings or mold. Often, however, it makes sense to replace older, under-performing insulation.
What types of insulation need to be removed vs. insulated over?
Insulation with vapor barriers, such as kraft-faced fiberglass may have to be removed, as well as older cellulose or spray foam. Unfaced fiberglass, blown-in fiberglass or quality cellulose can often be insulated over with no ill effects.
How do you know if you need more insulation?
If you notice hot and cold spots, fluctuating temperatures, high utility costs, drafts, or cold floors and walls, you may need more insulation.
How is insulation removed?
Fiberglass or other batt insulation can simply be pulled out and disposed of. Vacuums are often best for removing blown-in insulation, and knives, scrapers or saws may be required to remove spray foam.
