Natural Cotton Insulation

We now offer Applegate Cotton Insulation instead of UltraTouch.  Our Insulation specialist actually installed UltraTouch in his attic in Santa Cruz back in the 90’s and was extremely happy with it compared to fiberglass.  However, we find some advantages with Applegate, including ease of installation.


Applegate Cotton Armor insulation helps buildings stay warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer by effectively controlling all 3 methods of heat transfer: convective, conductive and radiant, helping your building be more comfortable and lowering your heating and cooling bills.

Applegate Cotton Armor insulation contains 85% recycled content and is primarily composed of cotton. A proprietary fire retardant penetrates and strengthens the fibers while providing permanent flame resistance. When installed properly and under normal conditions of use, these materials are nontoxic to humans and will not adversely affect other building components.


Wall, ceiling, and floor insulation is often used as a component of soundproofing. Any insulation product will improve your soundproofing compared to a hollow cavity.

Applegate Cotton Insulation has been rated for acoustic performance, click here for information.

However, if you are attempting to address a serious sound control problem that is impacting health or relationships with family or neighbors, you will want to educate yourself on the intricacies of sound control problems and the corresponding solutions. We recommend you start by visiting our friends at the Soundproofing Company as they are the industry experts.
