For flat areas that need extra insulation, such as attic floors and flat ceilings, blown-in cellulose is a cost-effective solution for homes in the Ashland, WI area. Cellulose is an insulating product that’s made from plant fiber to provide safe, cozy insulation. Because it’s blown into the attic area, it’s a fast way to upgrade your home’s efficiency.
What is Cellulose Insulation?
Our go-to cellulose insulation is made at the nearby Applegate plant located in Webberville, MI, which keeps transportation costs down.

Air Sealing Ensures Insulation Performance
During the energy audit, we’ll be able to identify areas in your home’s ceilings, walls and attic where your valuable heated air is leaking out through small gaps, cracks and areas around pipes or fixtures. To ensure these gaps are sealed, we often will spray a thin layer of Icynene® spray foam insulation to act as a sealant for flat surfaces. Once that is dried, your KV Build insulation expert will blow in the loose cellulose fiber to the right depth to reach the recommended R-50 value for Wisconsin attics.
