    Replacement of contaminated attic insulation

    When pests enter your house—especially rodents—they make nests and latrines and dig tunnels in insulating materials. Whether it’s in your attic, garage or basement, an insulating product is no longer effective when it’s filled with holes and soiled by animal excrement and urine.

    Not only will you experience heat loss and higher energy costs, but you could be liable for hidden defects when you sell your home. It’s imperative to remove all contaminated insulation and carry out a full decontamination of the space.

    Our team of pest control experts is trained to establish a safety perimeter, extract soiled insulation and dispose of the contaminated materials in accordance with industrial standards. We will then decontaminate the room thoroughly with a HEPA-filter vacuum as well as germicides and deodorants.

    Before putting in new insulation, we cover all roof openings with anti-intrusion mesh and seal all holes and cracks that could let in returning pests. Our technicians will then proceed to freshly insulate your home, making your space warm and cozy again.

    Replacing non-code-compliant insulation or upgrading your insulation

    Maybe you’ve never had to deal with pests in your attic, which is great! However, if your home is older, that same insulation that kept pests at bay could be non-compliant with current building codes. Additionally, any old insulating materials deteriorate over time and will no longer retain heat as they should. In either case, re-insulating your house will help you reduce your heating costs in winter and your air conditioning bill in summer.

    Do you have a century-home? Cathedral ceilings? A low-ceiling attic space? No matter the type of roof you have, our technicians can redo the insulation without a problem. Unless the existing material has been compromised by mold, water or fire, we will cover it with the new layer of insulation. If the old insulation is in poor shape, we will remove and replace it with fresh pest control insulation.

    Removal of vermiculite insulation

    Vermiculite is a lightweight material similar to mica; it has long been used as insulation for roofs, walls and under basement floors. Many homes in Canada were insulated with this ore between the 1920s and 1990s. One type of vermiculite contains asbestos, a natural product which is highly hazardous to the health and that can cause asbestosis and lung cancer.

    If your roof was insulated with vermiculite and you’re not sure whether it contains asbestos, our technicians can take a sample of the material and have it analyzed by a laboratory. If the vermiculite contains 3% or less of asbestos, we can replace the insulation; otherwise, you’ll need to hire a company specializing in asbestos removal.

    If you’re unsure whether your vermiculite attic insulation contains asbestos, do not handle it yourself; leave it to an expert. Handling the material can release asbestos-containing dust into the air, which you could then breathe in.

    What types of insulation do we use?

    For roof and attic insulation, and for insulation elsewhere in your house, we use products that meet current standards and that have an insulation factor of R-40 or R-50, whichever you prefer. Our most popular products are cellulose panels and sprayed polyurethane foam.


    • Resistant to mould, corrosion and fire
    • Sound-absorbing
    • Covers 100% of space and requires no seals
    • Can be used everywhere except in basements
    • Contains recycled paper and has a positive environmental assessment

    Polyurethane foam

    • Foam spray, expands up to 28 times its original volume and hardens when dry
    • Provides the highest thermal resistance on the market
    • Resistant to mould and moisture
    • Fire, air and vapour barrier
    • Excellent insulator in basement walls, exterior walls, door and window frames

    Elite Pest Control is licensed by Quebec’s Régie du Bâtiment to do your insulation work. Our methods and the products we use comply with all applicable standards.

    Discreet and efficient service

    We know that insulation and renovation can disrupt your daily home life. That is why our technicians do everything in their power to intrude as little as possible into your living space, all while working efficiently.

    We recommend that you plan for a two-day period to re-insulate your attic, although we are often able to finish everything in one day.

    Our rates are based on the number of square feet to be insulated. It will be our pleasure to evaluate the extent of the work to be done in your home and offer you a free estimate.


    Don’t wait for the signs that your home insulation is deteriorating or contaminated. Make an appointment with one of our technicians to benefit from the advantages of quality insulation, including lower heating and air conditioning costs and a longer life for your roof.
