FAQs

Is there such a thing as too much insulation?

Yes. While too little insulation will not help you at all, too much insulation will cause more harm than good in your attic. What happens is that over insulation restricts airflow so there is no ventilation and the HVAC has nowhere to get rid of the cold air. Over time, moisture problems and mold crop up and cause serious issues.

How do I get rid of rodents permanently?

There are many ways to kill rodents including traps, poison, and baits. However, if you want to ensure that critters don’t get into your house after you kill all those that are inside, you should have the attic’s entry point sealed in a method called rodent proofing.

What do I need for the inspection?

Nothing really. Our technician will come with all the equipment and gear they require to conduct the inspection as well as do any repairs, cleanup, and re-insulating.

Do I have to be there during the inspection?

You don’t have to be there. All our technicians are trustworthy and they will take photos inside your attic so you can have evidence of what they found in there. After the technician is done with the inspection, we will give you a call and explain everything in detail.

Why should I choose your company?

Attic Projects is a small company owned and operated locally. That means we are able to pay special attention to all our clients’ needs and we have a reputation to preserve in San Diego and Orange County. We offer a high standard of work including quality control and customer service is our middle name. If you want a company that will be as much a friend as a service provider, we are the people to go to.

Will you get rid of the pests?

We are not a pest control company but we provide an alternative means of getting rid of those pests slowly. By sealing all the entry points in the house and keeping the attic clean, we ensure critters and other animals don’t get access to your home.

What will I get out of the free inspection?

Our technician will spend a good amount of time going through every part of the attic to check that everything is okay. How much time the technician takes depends on how big the attic is and its maneuverability. However, you will find out everything that is wrong or damaged in your attic and get recommendations and solutions and if there is nothing wrong you will have peace of mind.

Are your estimates free?

Is your fiberglass insulation safe for people?

Yes. All our insulation is safe for the environment because of its natural fiber and treated with top-of-the-range formulations. Not only is the insulation safe, but it also has pest control properties to get rid of roaches, ants, termites, and other crawling insects. Our insulation is also thermally superior meaning it has a very high R-Value, fire- retardant, and sound- deadening so you can have a peaceful home free of outside noise.

Do I need to remove my old insulation first before installing a new one?

Yes and no depending on the condition of the old insulation. Ideally, you should remove the old insulation if it’s too damaged or wet and if you have critters hiding up there. The purpose of removing the old insulation is to cleanup so you can have a fresh start with an attic that is not only clean and well-insulated but also critter and pest-free. However, if your old insulation is okay and you only need to add some efficiency, you can go ahead and add a new layer on top of the existing one. Get an inspector to advise on that issue before going forward.

Isn’t it expensive to install insulation?

Not at all. The initial figure you are given may seem high but you will recover all that money when you save up to 30% of your energy bills and animal control. Have you seen the price of gas nowadays?

Do you give free estimates?

Yes. After you call and set up an appointment, a technician will come over to your house for a free inspection and then give you a free estimate of everything that needs to be repaired or redone.

How will cleaning up my attic help me?

Cleaning up the attic is very important for the health and efficiency of your home. A dirty and contaminated attic can cause diseases to your family members and make your house inhabitable. Our clean-up services include cleaning dust, urine, feces, and dead animal carcasses. We eliminate any odor, mold, and allergens so you have a healthy house and remove any damaged insulation to prepare your attic for new insulation.

Isn’t it cheaper to just clean up the attic and remove the old insulation on my own?

Yes, it is cheaper but not better. Hiring an attic cleanup company may look costly but you will reap many benefits you can’t find if you do the cleanup yourself. Apart from dust and debris, the attic might be contaminated with bacteria and other pathogens that could make you sick. Professionals come ready with the right gear to protect themselves from such contamination and the right equipment to clean everything without contaminating the rest of the house. Professionals also have the right disposal measures for old and contaminated insulation and therefore their work is safer for everyone concerned.
