Attic Insulation Vaughan

Installing new attic insulation in Vaughan can make a huge difference on your indoor comfort all year round. At EcoStar Insulation, we specialize in spray foam and blown-in insulation for attics, two products that give you better efficiency, protection from common insulation problems, and greater comfort in your home. The attic can be easily forgotten and underused, but its great surface area has an enormous unseen effect on your daily living.

Energy Efficiency is Directly Related to Your Attic

While your attic is unlikely to be a space you use daily, it may be drawing on the heating and cooling resources in other rooms. Just like wearing a hat in the winter keeps us warmer, keeping the top of your home well insulated may be the difference between between comfortable or not indoors. Most homes leak the most air through cracks or gaps in their building envelope - and because heat rises, this may leave ground or upper floor rooms cold and drafty, or in the summer, hot and humid. The best antidote to most mysterious breezes or temperature differences is insulating your attic with spray foam.

Spray foam is one of the top products currently on the market, known throughout the industry for its exceptional insulating capabilities, ability to seal against moisture and pests, and insulate agains sound. A leaky attic can become a huge draw on a home’s energy resources and literally drain money from your pocket via your utilities bill, so installing new attic insulation in Vaughan can ensure that this problem stops.

Spray Foam Insulation for Vaughan Attics

At EcoStar Insulation, we recommend spray foam insulation as attic insulation in Vaughan homes because it brings so much more than a high R-Value, the term used to measure a material’s ability to conduct heat. As one of the top rated products on the market, spray foam outperforms all the competition when it comes to protecting you from the changing outdoor elements and keeping your home comfortable.

Spray foam is a product that must be installed by professionals - it arrives as a liquid that is carefully applied with specialized tools and by trained technicians. Installing new attic insulation in Vaughan often brings immediate relief from drafts or hot spots, and many customers report increased savings on their utilities. While the upfront costs of spray foam are higher than traditional insulations, the long-term benefits in energy efficiency help pay down much of the original expenses.

Long-Term Benefits and Bonuses of Spray Foam

We recommend spray foam for attic insulation in Vaughan because it keeps you and your family comfortable, but it also has a number of benefits beyond insulation that increase your home’s value in the long run. As it cures, spray foam hardens and forms a barrier around your home that reduces the need for a separate moisture barrier. Because it foams on contact, it fits better into smaller spaces that traditional insulation struggles with, sliding around curves with ease. Spray foam is also an excellent idea for attic insulation in Vaughan because it also stops hidden moisture from coming into your attic, and over the long term, these benefits can make a huge difference on home maintenance bills.

Replacing your attic insulation in Vaughan

Replacing your attic insulation in Vaughan can help your home remain in good repair, save you money on your energy bills, and bring greater comfort indoor. Much of the insulation in older or newer homes can degrade over time - made up of small fibres or hard foam that doesn’t seal well, these types of insulation are susceptible to age and damage from moisture, construction, and pests.

Spray foam is the ideal material to replace attic insulation in Vaughan because it won’t break down or degrade, and needs no topping up over time. Once it’s installed, there’s no need to check up on it or worry about replacing it - with a better insulated home, you can focus on enjoying your family life and stop worrying about what’s happening above.

New Insulation Will Save You Money

Upgrading your attic insulation in Vaughan will help you save money on your monthly hydro and utilities bills by making your home more energy efficient. Because it seals gaps that could be causing conditioned air to leak from your home, spray foam allows your home to work as it should, so that the furnace or air conditioner has to work less hard to keep the thermostat level. If your furnace is working twice as hard as it should, you’ll be seeing repair and maintenance bills rise alongside your utilities, but spray foam can help the system get back into balance.

When it comes to home insulation projects, the EcoStar Insulation team is ready to help with your attic insulation removal in Vaughan. Whether your home is old or new, attic insulation is the single most important home renovation you can choose to do, with many benefits in both the short and long term. At EcoStar, our experience installing insulation over the last decade has given us the knowledge and skills to help ensure your old insulation is thoroughly removed, and that your new insulation is installed safely and correctly - poorly installed or unsafe insulation is one of the most common problems we see when doing insulation removals.

Insulation Removal in Vaughan: The Process

We may not be doctors, but attic insulation removal in Vaughan still requires assessment, precision, safety equipment, and experience (not to mention great bedside manners). The teams at EcoStar Insulation come prepared for any job, big or small, to perform the three basic steps of any attic insulation removal project.

1. Removal

First, we’ll assess your attic and determine what needs to be removed and what sort of problems might be present. Some homes may have water damage or pest infiltration - others may need new soffits or an additional vent. A thorough assessment will help us determine what your attic needs to function at its best.

2. Clean Up and Fix Up

The next step is to safely remove old damaged insulation. Many old homes used insulation containing asbestos or other harmful materials, and insulation can sometimes be covered in mold or animal feces - regardless of the problem, your home is contained before any work begins and all materials are safely bagged and sealed before they leave the attic. This clean up step is key to ensuring a high quality installation of new insulation! We’ll also make sure any needed repairs or upgrades happen during this time.

3. Installation

The last step is installing new attic insulation and doing our final clean up and checks. After a final clean up, we’ll be done - and if you didn’t know, you won’t be able to tell we were ever there!

When is Insulation Removal Necessary?

The attic is generally the least-used room in the house - it’s hot, stuffy, full of insulation, and generally not easily accessible, so it can be difficult to know when it’s time to have an attic insulation removal in Vaughan. The points below are all good signs it’s time for a change - but they can also signify other problems that may be going on in your home, so it’s always good to have a professional come and check.

  • When there’s been a leak and existing insulation has been damaged by water: Water is one of the most dangerous problems in an attic, since it can lead to mold growth. A leak, dislodged shingles, and even overhanging branches can cause water damage in attics.
  • When there’s been high humidity: A humid attic will lead to mold growth, and, like water, humidity can compress old types of insulation (like fibreglass), making it less effective.
  • When there’s been pests: Any type of pest (four, six, or eight legged) can cause a great deal of damage to insulation and greatly reduce its ability to keep your home protected from the elements. They also leave behind feces and other messes, and may become stuck and die within your attic.
  • When it’s contaminated: Some types of old insulation contain asbestos, which is a known carcinogen and is extremely dangerous.
  • When it’s old: If your insulation hasn’t been looked at in ten years, it’s safe to say it’s no longer to code and no longer doing an effective job at keeping your air conditioning inside your home.

Are you Renovating Your Home?

The best time to have an attic insulation removal in Vaughan is when you’re already renovating your home. It gives you the opportunity to receive a few additional benefits:

  1. It gets you back into your routine faster, since we can work alongside other contractors.
  2. It allows us to make changes or retrofits to help your new product perform to its optimal level, such as by installing new soffits or fixing leaks.
  3. It allows us to thoroughly air seal any cracks and gaps in your attic, ensuring you great energy efficiency.

What Our Clients Say About Us

Ivan Doyle Toronto

I have a cottage in Muskoka, and we rent it throughout the year. We have noticed during the winter that our clients have been complaining about the heat not being good enough. After consulting it with Ecostar Insulation contractors, we decided to go with them, and I have no regrets. Out cottage has never been warmer in the winter. Great Price and Professional Work.

Thomas O. Markham

Every winter for the past 4 years since I moved into this house, it has been cold inside my house. I tried getting different heaters, changing the ventilation, but the problem was actually in the insulation. The house is very old, and it cost me a lot of money during the winter time. BUT not anymore!! thanks to EcoStar Insulation. I have enjoyed last winter more than anything. Great job guys and keep it up. Tom.

Jerry & Melinda Toronto

We had a big project on our way, and our biggest issue was who will handle the insulation part. After contacting a few companies, EcoStar Insulation has proven to us that they are very professional, and they definitely stood to their word and got this done in time and without any issues. THANKS AGAIN!!!

Navarre & Sam Toronto

We just bought a new unit and as we were renovating it, we noticed there wasn’t any insulation inside. Luckily, everything was stripped and ready for insulation, so we contacted Ecostar and their professional contractors have done a phenomenal job.
