How Much Does it Cost to Replace Insulation?

Dec 3, 2013 by

Topic: Insulation, Renovation Costs

Every now and then, insulation needs to be replaced. This could be due to a build-up of dirt, dust, grime and even dead insects and animals that have entered the roof. Or perhaps the insulation is no longer keeping your house as warm or cool as it should. But how much does it cost to replace insulation?

Cost Considerations for Replacing Insulation

What you pay to replace the insulation in your roof depends on a few factors. How much insulation is required, whether you need to replace all of the insulation and whether you need to have the insulation removed or simply fixing the issue. It’s important to note that while upgrading your insulation may have up-front costs, you’re likely to save on your heating and cooling bills in the long-term. And while it can be tempting to DIY, you should leave insulation replacement to the experts. Insulation is serious business and needs to be installed properly to minimise the risk of fire and other problems.

Calculating the Cost to Replace Insulation

As a ballpark figure, it can cost between $2000 and $4000 or more to have the insulation sucked out and/or replaced. For a more accurate cost calculation, it’s a good idea to get quotes from insulation businesses. They’ll most likely come out to assess the old insulation and propose a solution for replacing it. They may also be able to help connect you with other services such as animal/rodent removal and other issues such as a leaking roof – if these have causes the insulation damage.

When comparing quotes, ensure you check what’s included and excluded. Given negative media coverage in recent years, you should also pick a reputable company – you can ask to see referral s or contact previous customers. And of course, always check the insulation business is registered with the relevant qualifications and warranties.
