Why Remove Old Insulation

Besides, the insulation can settle over time, leaving gaps in the coverage. It also has a risk of containing asbestos or other harmful materials that are no longer used. Like everything, insulation can break down over time and become less effective, or it can be damaged by water leaks, condensation, cracks in the foundation, and many other possibilities.
