Fibreglass Loft Insulation Removal Costs: A Comprehensive Guide

Fibreglass insulation has been a popular choice for many homeowners due to its effective insulating properties. However, over time, it may need to be removed and replaced. At UK Loft Insulation Removal, we offer professional fibreglass insulation removal services across England, Scotland, and Wales, ensuring safe and efficient removal.

In this article, we explain what fibreglass insulation is, the types available, why it should be replaced, and the detailed costs involved in our services.

What is Fibreglass Insulation?

Fibreglass insulation is composed of fine glass fibers woven together to create a material that traps air, providing excellent thermal insulation. It is commonly used in residential and commercial buildings to reduce heat transfer and improve energy efficiency.

Types of Fibreglass Insulation

There are two main types of fibreglass insulation:

  1. Batt Insulation:
    • Pre-cut panels of insulation that are designed to fit between studs, joists, and rafters. They often come with or without a paper or foil facing.

  2. Blown-In Insulation:
    • Loose-fill fibreglass that is blown into attics or wall cavities using special equipment, allowing for better coverage and filling of irregular spaces.

Why Replace Fibreglass Insulation?

Over time, fibreglass insulation can lose its effectiveness due to several factors:

  • Settling and Compression: Insulation can settle or become compressed, reducing its insulating capabilities.
  • Contamination: It can become contaminated with dust, mold, or vermin, posing health risks.
  • Age and Wear: Older insulation may deteriorate or become less effective, necessitating replacement for improved energy efficiency.

Why Choose a Professional?

Removing fibreglass insulation involves health risks and requires proper handling and disposal.

Here’s why you should hire a professional:

  • Health and Safety: Professionals use protective gear to avoid exposure to harmful fibers that can cause respiratory issues and skin irritation.
  • Expertise: Our team is trained to handle insulation removal safely and efficiently, ensuring no damage to your property.
  • Proper Disposal: We adhere to environmental regulations for the disposal of hazardous materials, ensuring responsible waste management.

Our Costs Explained

The cost of fibreglass insulation removal depends on several factors:

  1. Labour:

    • Labour costs depend on the size and complexity of the job. Larger or more complex lofts require more time and effort.
  2. Size of Loft:

    • The larger the loft, the more insulation needs to be removed, which increases the cost.
  3. Amount of Insulation:

    • The volume of insulation to be removed directly affects the time and resources required.
  4. Insurance:

    • Our services include insurance coverage to protect your property during the removal process.
  5. Waste Carriers Licence:

    • We are licensed waste carriers, ensuring that all removed materials are disposed of legally and responsibly.
  6. Disposal Fees:

    • Disposal fees cover the cost of safely getting rid of the old insulation in accordance with environmental regulations.

Average Time for Removal

On average, it takes about one to two days to remove fibreglass insulation from a standard loft space. However, the exact duration depends on the loft size and insulation volume.

We provide our services across:

  • England: Including major cities like London, Birmingham, Manchester, and Newcastle.

I highly recommend these guys who recently helped us clear and clean out our loft in Newcastle after we had rodents in. They removed old junk and the old insulation then cleaned up the rodent droppings and hoovered the loft out. They were very friendly, made sure no dust and dirt got into our home and cleaned up after themselves. We are elderly people so we couldn't do this but they did everything in half a day. We tried all over to get someone to do the works for us but these guys were the only ones to come out and give us a qoute. Would use again if we ever have another rodent problem.

We used this company a couple of days ago and are really impressed with the overall service provided. The lads were here almost 4 and a half hours completely clearing the loft and cleaning it afterwards. They used coverings on the stairs and landing to keep the carpet clean. Our loft looks like a new loft now and we didn't realise just how big it is with all the rubbish removed. Great set of lads, would highly recommend this company. 👍

Fantastic service by the team of lads that came to remove my old insulation. They also removed old wood that was there at a very reasonable price and made sure there was no mess. Turned up when they said they would, very polite and professional. Would definitely recommend.
