Frequently Asked Questions

I Need Roof Insulation, Will YourPro Be Able to Help Me?

The short answer - absolutely! We offer a variety of roof insulation services so we’ll be able to offer our valued customers. Whether you want to save money on your heating bill or just want to make your home a little cosier, we’ll put you in touch with a specialist who can assist.



 

What Types of Insulation Will YourPro Be Able to Assist Me With?

Below you’ll find a list with descriptions of the insulation specialists you can book through YourPro.

Attic Insulation

Most of your home’s monthly costs will go into heating, and most of the heat will escape through improper attic and roof insulation.

Our specialists use state-of-the-art insulation products like aluminium or wool sheeting to keep your attic sealed tight.

Some of our contractors offer other attic-related services too. If you need efficient lighting or pipe insulation in the attic, we’ll be able to help with that as well.
 

Roof Insulation

If your house doesn’t have an attic you don’t have to worry. Our specialists can manage all kinds of roof insulation services.

Your roof tiles or sheets may be old and tatty or could have been damaged, allowing heat to escape from your home. Moreover, it could be allowing water into your house, which could lead to other issues and causing damage.

YourPro will take care of all of these problems to keep your house in top shape.
 

Foam Insulation

This is all the rage in insulation services at the moment. There’s no need for sheets to be laid or nailed to wood to stay in place to apply this type of insulation.

It’s a lightweight, spray-on solution that expands in seconds to create a foam layer to trap and keep the heat in so you can live in comfort. And save costs at the same time!

What Will Roof Insulation Cost Through YourPro?

We cannot give a definite answer to this question, unfortunately. The cost incurred will depend on many different facets of the work that needs to be done.

Certain insulation methods are more cost-effective than others, and each contractor has his own costing structure. When you book and YourPro comes to inspect the work required, he’ll give an exact quote on what your project will cost. Depending on the scope of the job (and your living space), you can expect to pay from €460 to €1000. 

If you’re not satisfied with the pricing, you are more than welcome to log another request with YourPro to send out another consultant for an alternative quote.

Does Roof Insulation Come With a Workmanship Guarantee?

Yes, it does. Some insulation products come with a 25-year guarantee if installed by a qualified and recognised installer.

The contractor that you choose to use may have their own guarantee attached to their workmanship, as well. 


Guarantees rest entirely on the product that you choose to use and the contractor that is installing the product at your home.

 

 



 

Can a YourPro Specialist Offer Emergency Roofing Insulation Repairs?

This depends on the situation, of course. If there is damage due to inclement weather or other unforeseen situations, our specialists might not be able to help. It depends entirely on the repairs that are required.

Bear in mind that insulation contractors may not be able to help with structural damages. If your roof gets damaged it might require another contractor to come in first, to repair the structures of the roof  before the insulation contractor can do their part.

If, however, YourPro is able to assist, then the expert will definitely try his best to help you in your emergency and give the best advice if they’re not able to help.



 

My House Isn’t Newly Built, Can I Still Get it Insulated?

Absolutely! We agree with the specialists that the best time to install insulation is when a house is being constructed but that doesn’t mean it’s the only way!

Our insulation contractors offer all services related to insulation, including applications on houses that were built decades ago. They’ll remove old roofing sheets or tiles (if required), remove the old insulation, apply the new insulation that best suits your needs, and clean up the mess afterward.

Older house, no problem! It isn’t an issue, either, if you don’t have existing insulation in your house. Our insulation specialists will install new insulation wherever it is required, in any home. 

Which Insulation Should I Get?

We’ll answer your question with a question. How long is a piece of string? The insulation you require depends on a couple of factors.

One major factor: your budget. If you have a tight budget, the contractor will suggest an insulation plan that will suit your budget. Remember you’re not just paying for the material, but also for the contractor’s time and expertise.

Another deciding factor is the amount of work that is required to insulate your home. Insulation sheets might add too much labour cost that will skyrocket the price, where the spray-on foam will be the better option.

YourPro will lend you its expertise and compile a plan that will be perfect for your home and budget.



 

Is Insulation the Same as Waterproofing?

No, it isn’t. They may seem similar but the two are very different services.

Waterproofing, as the name suggests, protects the inside of your house against water damage. If it rains and you have a leaking roof, YourPro will suggest you look to people who offer waterproofing services. 

To waterproof your roof, the contractor will use different techniques and materials to protect your roof from precipitation like rain or snow. With that being said, spray-on insulation does offer some water resistance qualities but isn’t used as a waterproofing membrane.

Insulating a roof uses materials to make your home more efficient in retaining heat - or keeping heat out during summertime. You’ll be saving a lot of money on heating (and cooling) by insulating your house.

Now, that doesn’t mean that your insulation specialist can’t do waterproofing as well. When sending in your request to YourPro, make sure you select the appropriate service and give as much details about your project as you can. If you require both, you may need to send in two different requests.

Can Damaged Insulation Be Fixed?

Unfortunately not. Once the insulation is damaged, it will need to be replaced completely. Luckily this isn’t a difficult process. If your home uses aluminium or wool sheeting, the damaged panels will be removed and replaced with fresh insulation material. 

Spray-on foam insulation is a bit more tricky to remove. Many DIY enthusiasts opt to call in the professionals for this kind of job as it’s a bit more involved than wool or aluminium sheets. We’d also suggest you go out for the day when the contractors come to repair foam insulation. Removing foam creates a lot of fine dust that could irritate your sinuses.

Thankfully, there are warranties and guarantees on workmanship and material so you might not even pay, if it falls within those periods.



 

How Long Will it Take to Install My Insulation?

The answer to this depends on the amount of work required.

If the contractor needs to repair insulation, it could be a quick in-and-out job and might only take a couple of hours.

You might want to install new insulation in your entire home which could take a bit longer to install. 

Our contractors will give you a timeframe when they do the estimate.



 

Will I Need to Vacate My House When the Insulation Is Being Installed?

The YourPro contractor will advise you on the best practice during the installation. Spray-on foam insulation has a strong odour and releases chemicals during the curing process. These chemicals are non-toxic and fall within legal parameters. They could, however, be irritating to people with respiratory problems or asthma. Traditional insulation materials are safe and may cause mild skin irritation in some instances.

We would suggest that you try and clear your home while the contractors are busy installing your insulation. You could also look into YourPro cleaning services to give your house a good cleansing after the insulation installation.



 

Which Areas Do Your Experts Service?

Our consultants and contractors are found throughout Dublin. If we don’t have an exact match for your area, we’ll have a handyman close by to service your insulation needs in no time.
