Uncover the Hidden Problems Impacting Your $$$ and Health
Is your home more than 10 years old? Aging insulation loses its effective R-value when it gets dirty, moved around, or compressed. Fiberglass or cellulose insulation over 10 years old is likely only 20-40% of today’s R-49 code minimum.
Ignoring attic insulation problems is a costly mistake. Sub-par attics require more expensive: HVAC units, pest control, replacement windows, solar panels, and much more! Check this out…

Commonly Asked Attic Questions
According to statistics from EPA's Energy Star Association, energy bills can be cut by 30-50% with a properly sealed building envelope versus a vented one. The initial cost of the spray insulation should be seen as an investment as it will pay for itself over time.
Absolutely! The biggest expense when converting an attic would be to install closed cell foam instead of open cell foam. In northern climate zones closed cell is required. However, in central Texas open cell is the primary foam. Using open cell drops the cost of foam by 1/2. Other than this item, what we include in our proposals is what is required to do the job right. And it is best to do it right, or not do it at all.
The price depends on the size of the attic, scope of work required to do it right, and the difficulty of the work. We have fixed pricing and do not charge more for nicer parts of town. Everyone gets the same rate. With that said, you can see the 3 main project types pricing above.
Stellrr uses an industrial sucker. It is like a mini jet engine. Actually, it is just a huge 23HP vacuum. We bring a 4-inch tube into the attic and suck the insulation out of the house, to our vacuum, and into a container. Our super safety process minimizes airborne dust, allergens, carcinogens, asbestos, pesticides, and mold from entering your living area.
We use a proprietary Dumposaurus DinoCover to ensure the insulation does not blow all over the neighborhood. Some companies blow the old insulation into large cotton bags. (Not the black plastic bags full of debris that cannot be vacuumed). The problem with vacuum bags is they tear easily and fill up quickly. This can result in insulation blowing all over the neighborhood. Not great work results. It also greatly slows the removal process because the vacuum bags have to be changed every 20 minutes. I do make the Dumposaurus DinoCover available to competitor Insulation Contractors.
Sure. You could. But each person who has tried DIYing it, has told us what a mistake it was. It is so hot in attics that it takes weeks for our men to acclimate to it. Plus you really need the right equipment. We use 23 horse power vacuums and blow it into large dumpsters. People who DIY have used shop vacs. The difference is 1,000 sq ft per day of removal versus 100 sq ft per day DIY.
A few questions to keep in mind:
- How to handle pest and rodent infested insulation to avoid fecal matter diseases?
- What is the proper way to safely remove asbestos, and where must asbestos go once removed?
- What is the proper personal protective equipment for you to wear?
- How do you avoid damaging the ceiling or stepping through the ceiling?

Batt insulation requires a different process that involves 55g plastic contractor bags being brought into the attic. The infected insulation is safely placed in the bags, sealed up, and remove insulation from the building. It is placed in the dumpster when the vacuum is turned off. This method still requires professional level safety processes to avoid health hazards and contamination.
