Remove Attic Insulation - Best Way
3m 15s Lenght
The do it yourself project: remove attic insulation from a 2000 sq ft house. The potential savings: approximately $2500 over contractor estimate for removal only, prior to new insulation being blown in at additional cost of about $2800. Let's do this! After a full day of scooping with dustpans, dumping into black bags, and piling up in the garage, we decided 30% progress was not enough for our efforts. So, the big guns were brought in: a 19hp "mega insulation sucker" from the local rental equipment company. About a $350 investment for the day, plus bags, was money well spent. We ended up filling 4-1/2 bags which took up most of one parking spot in the garage. Will never remove attic insulation again without this machine! Just google "insulation removal vacuum" for more information of this type of equipment. Attics are not meant for anyone to spend much time in. Get in and get out, the faster the better!
