Applegate Insulation

Blown Cellulose Insulation
Insulation is permanent, critical and invisible – hidden in your walls, floors and ceilings. The discomfort of a poorly insulated home is often wrongly blamed on furnace and air conditioning problems when the actual cause is the insulation or its installation. Remember, the lowest bid is not always your best value – quality work takes time and normally costs a little more.

What is Cellulose Insulation?
Blown-in cellulose insulation is a popular alternative to fiberglass insulation. Cellulose insulation has almost twice the resistance to heat transfer as blown-in fiberglass insulation, with an R value of 3.8 per inch and won’t lose R-value (like fiberglass insulation) on the coldest and hottest days – when you need it most. We use only Applegate® Brand stabilized cellulose – which means dust & settling is eliminated. Its loose but compacting nature creates a custom monolithic seal.

Cellulose insulation actually helps make homes safer by providing up to 50% better fire resistance than fiberglass insulation. Applegate’s unique two stage process injects dry and liquid fire retardants to penetrate the cellulose fibers. From both a health and environmental perspective, cellulose insulation is considered more ecologically sound than fiberglass insulation, which is classified as a carcinogen and contains formaldehyde.

Why Insulate & Ventilate?
Industry experts recommend an R-60 in the attic. That means that almost every home in Michigan is under-insulated and under-ventilated. We recommend cellulose because it is denser and more efficient than most other types of insulation. Save up to 40% on energy bills and enjoy a quieter home too. Ventilation is just as important as insulation. It’s important to vent the moisture and heat from the attic to eliminate mold and mildew problems and to ensure long life for your shingles.

Kelly was our installer and was unbelievably hard-working very conscientious and even went the extra mile and called in a grizzly Veteran plumber when presented with a problem. We have used Atlas before and will again soon!"

"This was our second experience with Atlas. The shower in our last home was truly a primary selling feature. We returned to Atlas because of the quality of the job and the professionalism of the install. We were happy to see the same installers we had at our other house three years ago arrive here today. Chad and Bill did an excellent job. We received the same professionalism and quality we expected. They arrived with all the materials they would need, no hidden surprises, quality materials. They truly live up to everything they promise!"

"Recently, Atlas Home Improvement finished the second phase of my bathroom remodel. Matt and Chad were here every morning on time, stated in their morning phone call. They were friendly, efficient, knew their job and the job site was always in order and clean. They even went out of their way to make sure I was aware of all aspects of the job. They were GREAT!!! This is a great company!!! Very clean and considerate while putting in my new shower. Time the sales consultant was wonderful and really listened to what I want and was never pushy or tried to sell me something I didn't want. David did a wonderful job installing my shower. Great product they sell. I recommend this company highly!"

"Dave put in a stair lift for me and I was very, very pleased with the whole experience. He assessed the situation with an eye on my safety and recommended changing the side of the staircase the lift was to be installed on. He did the installation quietly and quickly and without creating any mess. And he made sure I understood how the equipment worked and watched me test ride it. I could not have been more satisfied with the whole process. I would highly recommend Atlas to any senior looking to modify their home so that they can age in place."

"We were experiencing temperature problems with our brand new walk-in tub, in that the temperature would not get very hot. After a call to Atlas we were scheduled by the office staff for an appointment within 2 days, which we very much appreciated. Dave arrived on time and immediately diagnosed the problem - and he quickly fixed it. Dave was very professional, pleasant, friendly, and knowledgeable. Our problem has now been fixed! Thank you Atlas for having such a great installation, office, and repair staff."

"We had our shower completely re-done by Dave. It was a custom job that involved replacing a sub floor and some plumbing issues. They were friendly, hard workers, our shower turned out perfect! I strongly recommend Atlas Home Improvement they stand by their work!"

"Our dealings with Atlas Home Improvement have been nothing but a delight. We had booked them through Home Depot Home Services which had a salesman come out and was easy to deal with and took his time to explain all of the steps to the process. Atlas delivered the exact way they had promised we were in the loop knowing when our materials were ordered when they came in and to finally setting up the appointment. The workmanship was 5 star excellent and we could not have been happier with our new shower enclosure it really made a difference!"
