Having too much insulation in a roof space is sometimes worse than not having enough.
 
Too much insulation in your roof can add excess weight to your ceiling, causing it to collapse over time.

This is due to having a product that no longer meets the building code.
 
Heavy amounts of insulation in a roof can also restrict the airflow and ventilation of your home. This can result in moisture issues on the ceilings of your house and, in some cases, even lead to mould problems. If left unchecked, these can cause severe health problems for you and your family.
