In some cases, you can install new retrofit insulation on top of the existing insulation. The new insulation doesn’t need to be the same type, as long as the two are properly layered.
For example, if your old insulation was blown in, you can layer fiberglass batts on top as long as the batts aren’t faced with foil or paper.
However, the existing insulation won’t work as a base layer if it has old fire damage, is damp or moldy or has been damaged by animals nesting in the attic or walls. Dirty or damaged insulation must be removed before new retrofit insulation can be installed.

Loose-fill or blown-in insulation can be used in many spaces. Fiberglass loose-fill is one of the oldest insulation types, and because cellulose loose-fill is made of up to 80% recycled material, it’s one of the most eco-friendly insulations.
With a consistency like shaving cream that hardens when dry, injection or masonry foam acts as insulation and an air barrier. It can seal enclosed spaces like wall cavities against heat transfer and air movement. It lasts a long time, as it doesn’t sag, compress or settle.
Available in various widths, fiberglass batt insulation is flat insulation that can be installed in ceilings, walls and floor cavities.
Spray cellulose insulation can be blown or sprayed nearly anywhere. It conforms to your home to form seamless insulation that protects against air infiltration.
Spray foam insulation is also highly effective against air infiltration. Sprayed wet, this type of insulation can insulate hard-to-reach areas and small cracks and crevices. As it dries, it expands into a thick, sealing foam.
Edwards/Mooney & Moses also installs fiberglass batts over one or two inches of spray foam, known as flash and batt insulation.
