Installation: Protective Gear

Some insulation jobs you can do yourself. For many jobs, CertainTeed recommends that you hire professionals to install insulation in your home. If you choose to tackle the job yourself, be sure to follow a few simple precautions and use the right tools and supplies:
  • Protective glasses and gloves
  • Disposable dust respirator
  • Long-sleeve shirt
  • Cap or hard hat (a hard hat is recommended in the attic to protect against protruding nails overhead) 

Note: Be sure to wash all work clothes separately. Then run washer through extra rinse cycle after you remove your clothes.
