Before you get going with an insulation project, it’s worth looking into how long it’s likely to take. This will help you organise it for a convenient time. To give you an idea of how long your project will take, we’ve made a typical insulation project timeline.
How long will an insulation project take?
Research: 1 week
Generally, projects that have a good amount of research behind them are much more likely to be successful. It’s sensible to invest some time into finding out what types of insulation are out there and which one would be best for you and your home. You should also prioritise finding local insulation companies and requesting quotes.
To locate insulation pros in your area, ask family and friends for suggestions or use our service. Our companies usually respond to enquiries within 48 hours of receiving them.
Once you’ve got some quotes from several professionals, look around to see if you can find any customer reviews. These will help you decide which professional to pick.
Installation time: 2 hours – 3 weeks
How long your insulation installation takes will depend on the type you want and the size of your property. Once you’ve picked your professional and they’re ready to go, they should be able to get your insulation in place in anything from around 2 hours to 3 weeks.
Loft/roof and cavity wall insulation tend to take the least amount of time to fit – usually sometime between 2 hours and 1 day. It generally takes about a day to install internal wall insulation in an average room and external wall insulation can take up to 3 weeks to fit depending on the size of your property.
Total time: 1-4 weeks
So your insulation project will probably take between 1-4 weeks to complete. If you need help getting in touch with professionals to work on your project, fill in our online form. We’ll match you with up to 4 local professionals.
