Are you looking to make your home as energy-efficient as possible? Give yourself a fresh start with a re-insulation solution. If you live in Upstate New York, in the Rochester, Syracuse or Buffalo area, look no further than MIG Building Systems. We have all your re-insulation, or existing home insulation, needs covered!
Rather than just adding another layer of fiberglass or foam to your existing insulation, re-insulation from MIG is a thorough multi-step assessment and installation program that addresses all the issues that can cause your home to be less efficient than it should be.
Our Re-Insulation Process
We start by removing all of the old, underperforming insulation you currently have installed. Then our experienced insulation contractors conduct an ENERGY STAR blower door test to measure air tightness and identify any spots where there is air leakage in the home. By sealing these trouble spots, we lay the foundation for a much more efficient insulation solution.
Once your home has been properly air sealed, our experts work with you to determine the best choice for new insulation. This may involve both wall and loft insulation solutions, including EcoTouch®, Owens Corning fiberglass batts, loose-fill fiberglass, InsulSmart foam wall insulation, and cellulose insulation.
You can learn more about these different re-insulation options here, and you can see a video of the entire re-insulation process below.
When the re-insulation project is complete, your home will be as well insulated and energy-efficient as a new home, and you’ll enjoy the comfort and savings of a house that is properly prepared for our brutal winters and hot summers here in Upstate New York!

IMPORTANT NEWS: The American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 passed by Congress on Jan. 3, 2013 provides extensions of energy tax credit provisions that benefit homeowners seeking energy efficiency improvements. Under section 25C, homeowners can claim a $500 maximum tax credit to cover material costs of energy-efficient upgrades to existing homes for all taxable years.
