Frequently Asked Questions
What is attic restoration?
Attic restoration is the process of returning your attic to its initial, optimal condition. As with any other area of the home, attics fall victim to deterioration for a variety of reasons including normal wear and tear, weather, and even direct damage.
The goal of an attic restoration is to repair, replace, and restore all outdated or damaged aspects of an attic to return it to a fully-functional state. For some homes, this process will put an attic in the best condition it’s ever been.
How often should you get an attic restoration?
It’s tough to say exactly how often homeowners should get an attic restoration. There’s no hard and fast rule when it comes to revamping this portion of the house. In reality, it’s less a question of time and more a question of condition.
In other words, the state of your attic should determine when an attic restoration is required, not its age. If your home’s recently experienced some damage due to weather, water, fire, or an infestation, an attic restoration might be essential. Of course, older homes with neglected attics might also require a complete renovation despite not experiencing any major damage.
Can you handle attic restoration on your own?
The process of attic restoration might seem relatively simple at first. However, the minute you start getting into the process, you realize just how complicated it really is. In the end, most homeowners who attempt a DIY attic restoration end up calling a specialist anyway. It’s much smarter to simply get ahead of the problem by calling a specialist to handle it.
There are a few crucial reasons why working with an attic restoration expert is ideal. First and foremost, there’s a proper way to dispose of old, damaged, or infested insulation which can help prevent the spread of harmful bacteria or other contaminants. Plus, professionals already have access to the specialized equipment necessary to perform a thorough attic restoration process that would cost homeowners a lot of money to buy or rent.
Another important reason to hire a professional is that the extent of damage might not be visible to the untrained eye. Water damage, fire damage, and even infestations can cause structural damage that only a professional can pinpoint. Having an expert handle the restoration ensures everything is done completely and professionally.
How long does attic restoration take?
It’s tough to give an accurate general estimate since all attic restoration projects have their own timelines. There are various factors that determine the overall timespan of the project including the size of the attic, the extent of the damage, the type of insulation, and so much more.
