While most homeowners typically undertake remodels to update the visual appeal of certain areas of their home while also improving their functionality, you should also make sure that you are checking on what lies behind the walls at this time as well. Just as many homeowners will have older plumbing updated during a kitchen remodel, the same attention should be paid to the condition of your insulation. Here are just a few reasons why you should consider home insulation installation in Petaluma, CA during your next remodel.
A cost-efficient update
If you are updating your home with a brand-new kitchen or bathroom, or finishing an attic or basement, not giving any extra attention to the insulation behind the walls in these areas that have fielded years of use could cause issues for you in the not-too-distant future. If you see that this insulation could use some work, the most cost-efficient option would be to either have a new installation done, or update the existing insulation while the remodel is underway.
During a remodel, the wall’s interior will already be exposed, and having the work completed at this time will save you additional time, hassle and most importantly costs. Even if your home is on the newer side, it is still a good idea to have your existing insulation inspected so that you can make any updates or changes before the remodel is complete.
An update to your insulation at this time will also present you with the opportunity to take advantage of all of the improvements in insulation technology that have occurred in recent years. For example, the insulation that was used before energy regulations were put into effect was much thinner than what is used now. For this reason, even if your older insulation is still in pretty good shape, it might no longer be a good fit to keep up with the demands of you and your family now.
Updating your insulation now during your remodel is a decision that will help you save money well in to the future. Adding new insulation or updating existing insulation will also refortify your home’s defense against humidity and moisture, and the subsequent mold or pest problems that could develop as a result.
New home insulation installation in Petaluma, CA should be viewed as a necessary portion of your remodel that makes it complete. You wouldn’t want your mechanic to pop your hood and fix the issue that caused you to bring your car in, while completely ignoring other glaring issues they might find once the hood is opened, and the same is true for the insulation behind your walls.
