Rebuilding After the Derecho

A terrific windstorm called a derecho, blasted through Iowa on August 10th, leaving a path of destruction.  Not that we in Iowa have not experienced windstorms and tornadoes before, but the path of destruction it left was far wider than usual.

Iowa Caught in Derecho’s Path of Destruction

Perhaps you or someone you know had some damage to their home, business, or farm buildings. It could be minor to extensive requiring repairs.

The Need to Remove Old Insulation

Having a roof torn off your home, exposing the attic to the elements will negatively impact the insulation in your attic.  While you may think of DeFord Spray Foam & Concrete Lifting as just adding new insulation. We also remove old insulation that has become compromised by the elements. 

Perhaps you rarely have any reason to go into your attic.  Over the years, your insulation is doing a great job of keep your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.  It too can become home to the occasionally rodent, building those rodent condos in the fluffy fiberglass or cellulose insulation.  Unfortunately, those mouse motels do not come with bathrooms and things can build up causing all sorts of other issues: droppings, mold, urine smells, etc.

If the recent storm caused damage to your property where insulation was now exposed to rain and the outdoors, it is time to have it safely removed and replaced with new.

Rebuilding After the Storm

More extensive damage might mean complete replacement, we are certainly sorry for any loss you may have had.  It does also mean you can use this an as opportunity to properly insulate any building you may have to replace. Call us so we can work with your general contractor to provide the best spray foam insulation, blown-in fiberglass or cellulose insulation options for your home, business, or farm buildings.
