Drill & Fill Cellulose Insulation
Usually, your walls can be insulated without having to demolish plaster or drywall by using Drill and Fill Cellulose insulation. Our experienced team at Hassler uses advanced equipment to blow the cellulose into the wall cavities at high pressure by drilling 1-1/2 inch holes in the plaster or siding. After the install is complete, we patch the walls, leaving little trace of our work. This leaves your home weatherproof, air tight, and ready for surface finishing and painting.
