Never Settle for a Home You Don't Love

When I was finally ready to purchase my first home after I graduated from college and found a stable job, I was on a tight budget. I settled for a house that was "good enough" for the time-being, but knew that in the future I would move to a larger one. Once I met my wife and she moved in, we thought about moving but loved the location of our home and had made great friends with the neighbors. For years, we thought we had "to settle" with the home we had since we didn't want to move, but recently, we decided to have several of our rooms remodeled. We are now in love with our home and think everyone should live in a home they love! We decided to start a blog to share what we learned about home construction and remodeling during the process!

3 Signs That It's Time To Install New Insulation In Your Attic

If you or someone else has installed insulation in your attic at some point, you might have never thought about replacing it. However, even though insulation can last for a long time, it does have to be replaced occasionally. These are a few signs that it might be time to install new insulation in your attic.

1. You've Had an Animal Infestation

Squirrels, rats, mice and other pests often make their homes in attics. This can be problematic for a few reasons, but one reason is that these pests can destroy your insulation while attempting to use it for a nest. If this is the case in your home, there is a good chance that your insulation needs to be replaced.

2. Your Insulation is Wet

Leaks in your attic can happen, such as if you have a leak in your roof. This can cause your insulation to become wet, which can make it ineffective. In this situation, replacing your insulation is your best choice. Additionally, you will want to determine the cause of the leak; then, you can repair the problem and prevent your new insulation from becoming damaged, as well as preventing additional property damage or other potential problems.

3. It's Challenging to Keep Your Home Heated or Cooled

Have you found that it's challenging to keep your home heated during the winter or cool and comfortable during the summer? If so, there could be various causes for this, such as a lack of insulation in your home. If you don't have enough insulation in your attic, cold winter wind can blow in, or the heat of the summer sun might not be kept out. Not only can this make it difficult for you to keep the temperatures comfortable inside your home, but it can also cause you to have to spend more on your heating and cooling bills than you normally would. Making the investment to install more insulation in your home can help you keep your family more comfortable and can save you a significant amount of money as well.

As you can see, there are various situations in which it might be necessary to replace the insulation in your attic. If any of these three things apply to your home, now is the time to talk to a professional about putting in more insulation. Luckily, there are companies out there that focus on residential insulation, and that can help you with this. To learn more, contact a company like Parsons Construction Group
