Adding Sidewall Insulation in an Existing Home

Installing insulation into existing exterior wall
If your home was built prior to or during the 1960s, it’s a tossup if it has insulation in exterior walls. Even if your home is from this era and does have exterior wall insulation, it’s hard to say how much is there.

Do your summer plans include home remodeling or replacing siding? It’s a great time to upgrade exterior wall insulation! After existing siding is removed, small access points are drilled into the wall exterior through which loose-fill fiberglass or cellulose is dense packed into the cavity. If you are not remodeling or replacing siding, do not worry! By carefully removing a piece of siding midway up the wall we can access the exterior of the wall cavity and follow the same procedure.
