See what our satisfied customers have to say about our insulation removal service!
We called more than a dozen companies for bids to remove and replace our insulation. Koala was the only one who had knowledgeable insight into the job ahead. And offered articulate explanation of different types of products, and a detailed quote for each. No gotchas or surprises....and at an excellent price point. The completed job exceeded my expectations. I don't often give glowing reviews...but these guys absolutely deserve this one. They are highly recommended!
I was interested in having better insulation in my attic. Koala sent a representative to my home and he did a detailed inspection of my attic’s insulation. He sent me three estimates ranging from topping off existing insulation to complete removal of existing insulation and adding new. I thought the pricing was fair. We made our selection and the work was completed to our satisfaction. We’re looking forward to saving in our utility bill. I would recommend Koala for your insulation needs.
I have dealt with several contractors for the past 6 weeks and by far Koala insulation was the most pleasant and easy to deal with. They were fully equipped, fully staffed, on time and not a penny over their quote! I would highly recommend.
Got the whole attic insulated from start to finish just a positive experience. I would highly recommend Koala insulation for all your insulating needs!
Very professional. Great service. They even destroyed a hornets nest. Showed before and after pictures. Cleaned up prior to leaving and asked us to verify that we were satisfied.

LEARN ALL ABOUT BLOWN IN INSULATION!
Slow, minor leaks, severe weather, excessive or extreme temperatures, and intense humidity will cause moisture to build up. Sealing up air leaks will ensure that the new insulation will not become damp, leading to mold and mildew. Additionally, moisture can cause cellulose to lose its pest and fire-resistant qualities.
Rodents, birds, and insects that find their way into your attic, crawlspace, or walls may find your insulation to be quite cozy and thus decide to move in. When removing the old insulation, any pest feces and urine will be removed, and your attic will be sanitized completely before any new insulation get installed.
Air leakage can lead to the transfer of heat and moisture, which can cause numerous issues, even with the highest insulation level. Reducing air flow is essential to improve the overall energy performance of your home. Koala technicians will seal around your access hatch, recessed lights, duct work and any other spaces that may allow air flow, creating a tight air barrier.
Cellulose consists of fibers made from recycled newspaper, cardboard, or wood and is made with or without binders. Cellulose is a very common type of blown-in insulation as it is made from recycled materials and is chemically treated to resist pests, mold, and fire. Boric acid is the primary chemical used to treat Cellulose insulation and is found naturally in seawater, fruits, and plants.
Fiberglass is made from plastic, glass, and other raw materials that are melted and spun into fibers that resemble the texture of wool. Fiberglass insulation has moisture and fire-resistant properties. Because fiberglass is made from sand and glass, it is naturally non-combustible. Fiberglass has significant recycled content with some loose-fill products containing up to 80% recycled glass.
When choosing attic insulation, R-value matters. Insulation is labeled by R-value. R stands for resistance to heat flow, the greater the R-value, the higher the insulating power. Koala installers have the knowledge and experience to recommend and install the right density and thickness (R-value).
Depending on where you live, different climate zones require different R-values. If you live in a colder climate zone, like the northeast, you’ll need a higher R-value of insulation, then if you live in a milder climate zone. Typical recommendations for exterior walls are R-13 to R-23, while R-30, R-38 and R-49 are common for ceilings and attic spaces. Proper batt insulation must be installed higher and over your ceiling joists or wall studs, this allow for optimal insulating.

We highly recommend Koala Insulation!
Great company! Our request for an estimate was handled very swiftly and the service was performed almost immediately afterward. The Koala team was very careful, protecting our walls and floors, and showed concern for our well being since it was cold outside and the door was open. The work was performed efficiently and thoroughly and they cleaned up after themselves so one would never know they were there...except: the next morning we could already notice that our upstairs area was warmer than it had ever been in the winter! We highly recommend Koala Insulation!
