What is the Best Way to Insulate a Metal Building?

Have you ever wondered what the best way to insulate a metal building is? Then this article is for you.

After assembling your building, whether it is a home, garage, workshop, shed, etc. you may be wondering about insulation types and costs associated.

There are two types of insulation to consider: SteelMaster’s batten insulation or spray foam insulation.

When looking for what type of insulation is best for metal buildings, keep these factors in mind:

1. Easy to Install

Steel Master’s insulation kits are customized to your buildings model and measurements and include all the hardware necessary for installation.

The rolls are delivered in manageable lengths, 12-20 feet each, versus others which can be 100+ feet long.

Whether you have little DIY experience or you’re an experienced builder, our insulation kits are manageable.

Meanwhile, insulating metal buildings with spray foam is messy, and requires a contracting company to install.

2. Aesthetics

If you decide to keep the insulation exposed in the interior of your Quonset, the aesthetic is something to consider.

SteelMaster fiberglass insulation for metal buildings are delivered in rolls and can easily cover any surface. Once installed, it has a pillow-like look and the white color can brighten up the interior of your Quonset hut.

Meanwhile, spray foam insulation for metal buildings can look bulky, and has a lumpy texture, even when painted over.

3. Ease of Repair

 Another thing to keep in mind is metal building insulation repair.

Just as you would need a contractor to install spray foam insulation, you would also need a contractor to repair it if needed.

On the other hand, our batten insulation is extremely easy to replace. With the smaller rolls, you are able to just remove and replace the roll as needed.

Because of the simplicity, this will keep your insulation price and costs down and headache to a minimum.

4. Handmade Install Guide

Every customer that purchases our insulation kits are provided with a detailed handmade installation guide. This shows you how to install the insulation for your Quonset from beginning to end.

5. Our Insulation is Designed for Metal

When choosing the right insulation, you must also consider the facing, which is the part of the insulation that faces the inside of the building. Meanwhile, spray foam insulation can be used for all types of structures.

6. Tech Support

After you purchase your insulation from us, our knowledgeable team of customer service representatives are here to assist you with any additional questions you may have. If you go with spray foam insulation on a metal building, you may be on your own if any questions or problems arise after installation.
