Odour from Certainteed fiberglass insulation
We just had some Certaineteed fiberglass insulation installed,in our house and have noticed a very strong odour from it. I thought it would dissipate relatively quickly but after 4 days , it is still quite noticeable. In fact, the odour was so strong that we had to go to a hotel because it made my wife sick.
As anyone ever had this experience with Certainteed fiberglass insulation before?
I have worked with other brands of insulation in the past and cannot ever recall that strong of an odour.
Does anyone have experience with Certainteed?
Is this normal for Certainteed?
How long should it take for the odour to go away?
It has already been covered with poly.
There was some installed under an exterior overhang and every time if walk under it, I can smell it.
And this is exposed to the outside.
We purchased from an insulation supplier in Vancouver, BC so I don’t know where it was manufactured.
In the US or do they have a factory in Canada?
I never expected this issue with fiberglass insulation.
I will be calling the supplier Monday but any opinions/information is helpful.
