Installing insulation is also easy to learn to do. Installing sheets of insulation for walls and ceilings can be handled by most people. Blowing insulation into an attic is also manageable for many who are willing to do the work and rent the necessary equipment. But if you decide by save money by installing the insulation, you will need to be sure to wear a mask to protect your lungs. Insulation material can be very damaging if inhaled. Insulation is installed after rough electrical and plumbing is done and inspected and before the drywall. There will be a break in the work of your contractor at this point, so you can take a few days or even weeks to install the insulation yourself and save some money. Remember that rolled insulation should be installed with the paper or other moisture barrier toward the outside.
