Get an Attic Insulation Inspection
When you reach out to Universal Insulation Doctor, we will set up an appointment with one of our insulation experts to inspect your attic insulation.
Whether you need new attic insulation for a new home or you are looking to inspect existing attic and crawl space insulation, we will assess the situation to find the right solution for your needs. We will determine if we need to remove your existing insulation and start over, or if we can just add to your existing insulation.
Our inspectors are trained to look for signs of rodent or wildlife nesting, droppings or urine.
We offer video or pictures of the before and after if requested, just let us know.

Attic Installation Capping
Our qualified insulation inspectors at Universal Insulation Doctor may recommend additional insulation added to your existing insulation instead of complete removal.
What is R Value? R value is an insulating material’s resistance to conductive heat flow measured or rated in terms of its thermal resistance or R value — the higher the R value, the greater the insulation effectiveness. The R value depends on the type of attic insulation, its thickness, and its density.The recommended level for most attics is to insulate to R-38 or about 10 to 14 inches, depending on insulation type.
Sometimes your insulation may be worn down, has settled some, or is just not pulling its weight. If you don’t have any pest damage or other issues with the existing attic insulation, opting to add more is a great way to increase your insulation efficiency. Not to mention, a great way to reduce heating and AC bills.
If you feel your insulation levels in your attic do not meet the recommended R-38, contact Universal Insulation Doctor today for your free quote.

There are two material choices for loose fill: Fiberglass / Cellulose Insulation.
Fiberglass Insulation includes sand or recycled glass and is lighter in weight than cellulose and mineral wool. However, it settles more than these materials, which means you need a thicker layer to insulate your attic well. This product is offered with (Fiber-Guard) or without a pest control blend.
Cellulose Insulation includes recycled post-consumer paper that is fiberized and packed tightly to inhibit airflow. This is the most used material in insulation. This product is offered with (PestGuard) or without a pest control blend.
