The R-value is a measure of how well an object resists conductive flow of heat. The thicker or denser the insulation is, the more it resists the flow of heat through it. The higher the R-value, the better the insulation’s performance.
We recommend removal prior to installing new insulation as over time the existing insulation can break down and therefore the insulation will be ineffective. Old existing insulation can also house vermin, insects, animal faeces, dust and other allergens. Often removal is required to prevent ceiling collapse or for electrical repairs.
Prices vary depending on the existing product type, size of your roof space, access and cost of disposal. Please contact one of our friendly staff to receive a more accurate quote or fill out our contact form and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.
We gain access for insulation removal and insulation installation through the roof tiles or tin where possible. We do this to reduce the risk of damage or dirt entering your home.
Without insulation, homes are exposed to the external temperatures which can enter the house through the roof, walls and windows. By having a well insulated home and home design, insulation can not only keep you cooler in the summer but warmer in the winter. This will reduce the need for heating and air-conditioning saving you money of energy bills.
We install and supply a range of Bradford Insulation products. Bradford has been manufacturing insulation in Australia since 1934. We started with Slagwool, then went to Rockwool and we have been making Glasswool now for almost 50 years. Glasswool insulation has been comprehensively researched over more than 30 years and the World Health Organisation has concluded that glasswool does not pose any long-term health hazard.
Glasswool batts come in standard widths and lengths that match standard joist spaces. With wall and ceiling insulation the batts are usually brought into an existing ceiling access and fit snugly between ceiling joists to achieve maximum thermal insulation.
Yes, if installed correctly, insulation can reduce condensation and mould growth on the ceiling by keeping the internal ceilings warmer. Other factors to consider are ventilation, low room temperatures and high humidity levels inside the house.
