“While the valiant, innovative efforts of the Do-It-Yourself community are entirely admirable, there are some jobs that should be left to the professionals,” Clean Crawls says in a recent article explaining the top 5 common mistakes made by DIY insulation installers.
“Attic and crawl space insulation is a technically complex task that requires expertise in the construction industry and specific knowledge of how to do the job well,” the article states. A home’s energy efficiency depends upon the quality of the installation job performed.

Ill-prepared installers can contract bad rashes and respiratory issues from being poorly equipped for the job. Moreover, many DIY installers don’t have safe equipment and try and get by with deficient lighting or unstable ladders.
Another mistake the article references is when DIY installers choose the wrong type of insulation. According to the article, “choosing the insulation that will best suit your home is vital to ensuring that your insulation job is actually effective.”
Do-It-Yourself jobs can often result in sub par installation, as well. Leaving gaps in the insulation, doing a poor job with a vapor barrier, or cramming the insulation into small areas are sure-fire ways to sabotage the effectiveness of insulation.
The article concludes by saying, “we would recommend that, if you don’t have construction experience, that you leave the insulation installation job to individuals who have the experience and know-how to give you the most energy-savings for your money.”
