In a show of confidence in the Western building industry, Applegate Insulation recently gained licensure to market both Applegate Loose-fill and Applegate Stabilized Cellulose in California. Once again California homeowners, insulation contractors and builders will be able to reap the benefits of Applegate’s half a century of experience with cellulose insulation.
Applegate is known for having pioneered the only hybrid liquid/powder fire retardant treatment for cellulose insulation. Because of the dual nature of their fire resistant system, the powders are locked into the insulating fibers giving Applegate less dust and a permanent treatment that allows them to offer a lifetime warranty on their insulation. Added benefits of both Applegate Insulations is that they contain a minimum 85% recycled content and are widely accepted as meeting most green building criteria.
Applegate is also the only insulation manufacturer that offers a guaranteed heating and cooling cost for homeowners that re-insulate their home. Customers of Applegate also are afforded the opportunity of installation training, equipment leasing and sales workshops and access to the industry’s largest library of sales and marketing materials.
Established in 1978, Aaron and his son Terry Applegate began manufacturing cellulose insulation out of a small facility in Okemos, Michigan. In the ‘80s and ‘90s, Applegate was actively marketed on the West Coast. With their recent acquisition of a new facility in Colorado, Applegate is once again being sold coast-to-coast. Today, Applegate headquartered in Webberville Michigan, is the largest privately owned cellulose insulation manufacturer in the world, and supplies a variety of insulation products throughout the United States. Applegate currently operates facilities in Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Georgia, Louisiana, and Colorado. New for 2011 is Mr. Insulate Cotton Armor, blanket insulation that combines mans first fiber friend, Cotton, with 21st century fire retardant and fiber processing technology. Consequently, Cotton Armor is the worlds' foremost energy saving hybrid, visit www.mrinsulate.net for additional details on Cotton Armor insulation.
