Not meeting the Building Code
Damaged or Contaminated Insulation
There is a range of contaminations that occur in roof cavities. It can be an attic full of rat, mice or possum droppings and urine soaked insulation material. These vermin damage insulation, causing it to lose it's functionality. Otherwise leaking roof tiles and debris from building can contaminate your insulation. All these serious health hazards enter your home as you breath it in.
Toxic, Harmful Chemicals
A lot of old insulation contained toxic chemicals. These can be early onset asthma, respiratory issues and skin irritations. Chemicals are not only airborne in your home, but leach into your ceiling. Lead, asbestos, formaldehyde and boric acid were all used in old insulation. We only recommend the Asthma Foundation approved Bradford Gold range.
