How to Insulate the Existing Walls?

Are you looking for a way to insulate your old house without removing walls? Reitzel insulation uses its state-of-the-art thermal imaging camera to identify framing in your walls. Thermal imagers sense the difference in heat which helps locate areas of interest. These detected parts in the walls lack insulation and need fixation. Newer homes usually have appropriate insulation, but the walls of older homes (built before the 1980s) often are not insulated. Your wish is to protect the charm and beauty of the house; we understand this well. Blown-in insulation and injection foam are effective ways to insulate existing walls. These retrofit methods are cost-effective and save you from rebuilding the entire building again. It is possible to insulate your walls by injecting insulation material through a few inches hole.

  3. Close-cell spray foam

Reitzel will determine your wall framing and install the best fit insulation between the studs.
