Roof Insulation

Quality Roof Insulation Installed

One of the most effective ways to reduce electricity costs while cooling your home is through effective ceiling insulation. Roof insulation in Brisbane can reduce home heating and cooling costs by 30-40%, while dropping the internal home temperature by 8°C in summer.

Many existing Brisbane homes have had roof insulation installed in past years. Over time, the insulation batts will deteriorate and fall apart. Also the recent wet summers, and strong storms may have shifted blown-in or loose types of house insulation, dramatically reducing their effectiveness.

If you are thinking of installing roof insulation batts, or removing existing insulation and replacing it with more efficient types, then call Peter the Possum Man.

I would have no hesitation in recommending your company to my family and friends.

Ceiling Insulation to Keep Your House Warm & Cool

Over the last few decades, we have spent many hours in people’s roofs – chasing pesky possums and birds. And in that time, we have seen our fair share of different insulation types. We have seen what works well from an insulating perspective, as well as what works well when you need to move things around in the roof.

This is why we recommend and install high-quality polyester or fibreglass insulation batts. They resist animal and bird damage, can be easily moved if you need to access electrical points or to repair problems in a roof, and most importantly, they effectively protect the home from summer heat and winter cold.

We recommend polyester batts, as they are safe to install, dust free and non-irritant, long lasting, are insect and vermin resistant, safe for asthma sufferers and are highly effective at reducing the heat.

Installing Insulation Batts


Why do you recommend a roof cleaning?

Insulation should be laid on a clean roof to reduce the risk of dust entering the house (through ceiling vents and down lights). Cleaning also reduces the risk of allergic reactions to dust.

What type of ceiling vacuum do you use?

We use a powerful commercial grade vacuum that has HEPA filters to remove even the really fine dust.

How do you remove cellulose fibre?

We use a specially designed commercial vacuum that has the ability to remove a large volume of heavy particles; this means it is removed safely unlike shovelling which could damage electrical wires. We have developed ways to handle the large volume of material to be removed. We recommend you take advantage of our specialist experience.

Can you vacuum inside an Asbestos roof?

Yes, we can vacuum the ceiling under a super 6 roof but not after it has been replaced. If vacuuming under a super 6 roof we also have to take the vacuum hose into the ceiling through the internal manhole as we cannot lift the roof.

Can you do a roof cleaning when there is insulation in the roof?

Not usually. To be able to vacuum a roof effectively the old insulation needs to be removed which is why we recommend vacuuming when you are getting new insulation.

How do servicemen get into the roof?

When we vacuum ceilings we usually access the roof space by temporarily removing the iron sheets or tiles to take the vacuum hose into the roof. This also ensures minimal dust goes into the house.

Can you vacuum the raked or flat verandah section of the roof?

Yes but when the roof space is narrow we would have to remove the roof sheeting to access the cavity. This would need to be taken into consideration in the pricing for the work.

How long will the roof cleaning take?

For our serviceman to complete a ceiling vacuum of an average house of 120 square meters takes about four to five hours work if there is ready access to the roof space.
