Insulating Metal Buildings
Metal & Agricultural Buildings
Metal and wood buildings have grown in popularity over the last few years. People are turning to them for everything ranging from she-sheds and man caves to offices and workshops. They are even being used to make extravagant barndominiums!
Spray foam insulation is the best product to use to keep your space temperate, moisture free, and if you use closed cell, up to 65% more structurally sound. Spray foam expands as it is applied to the cavity, filling in all cracks and crevices, preventing air flow and keeping your conditioned air inside rather than seeping out.
With the radiant barrier that spray foam provides, an unconditioned metal building will stay cooler just because the sun’s radiant heat will not be able to penetrate the space. Adding spray foam insulation in our panhandle area provides the added benefits of structural integrity in high winds.
Farmers are increasingly insulating their barns to provide pest control, temperature control, and moisture control. Using spray polyurethane foam has proven to be the most effective way to ensure a cost-effective, safe, dry, and comfortable interior environment.
Spray polyurethane foam (SPF) insulation seals all the cracks and crevices that rodents and bugs crawl into helping in the prevention of pests. As an airtight barrier, Open-cell SPF keeps the climate inside consistent, this includes humidity levels as well as the air temperature. With higher R Values preventing radiant heat to enter, the temperate climate inside your barn, chicken coops, hog pens, and horse stables stays more consistent. Closed-cell SPF is more dense and is water resistant. This watertight seal with help keep moisture out helping prevent mold and rot damage, which can be costly for grains and feeds. Closed-cell SPF also adds structural integrity to your building helping weather the storms.
