Metal Building Insulation
The worst thing that we could do is to try and hide some of the weak spots that this type of insulation brings. There is no one method that is just great all the way through. There are some instances where certain types of insulation may not be the best option for a particular area. Over the years there has been a great debate as to whether or not metal buildings should be insulated with foam. We have had a vast experience working in these types of buildings. So right off the bat, we can tell you it is not the disaster that a lot of people want to paint it out to be!
Why Do People Consider Spray Foam Weak For Metal Buildings?
The idea that spray foam is not good for metal buildings is sort of archaic in a way. What a lot of industry vets that don’t work with this type of insulation are going to point to is that the foam could potentially trap moisture and that moisture could become a problem later on. This is not a problem that you will be getting with the type of foam that we use. This used to be a problem in older generations. At this point though the problem is basically solved.
There Are Still Traditionalists Out There
The last thing that we would want people to get from what we are saying is that other methods are not any good and that spray foam is the very best thing ever. On the contrary, we decided to dedicate fully to this type of insulation because we really liked the results that it provides. We do know though that there are different options. Most traditionalists are not going to be too comfortable with using spray foam and to be honest they should not be. We are going to tell you why here in a second.
Work Only With The Pros
Another one of the reasons that we could point to as to why some people will not like spray foam in metal buildings is that they have had a bad experience with it. That is why it is so important to hire the right company for the job. Applying spray foam can seem easy enough, but mixing the chemicals in the wrong way can put you in some trouble. That is why we can’t stress this enough. Only allow real spray foam pros to handle these types of situations.
That Tight Seal
If you are looking to build a metal building to serve as a garage or as a storage unit using this type of foam insulation is really going to come in handy. This insulation is going to be able to seal all of the structure joints so you won’t have wind chills coming in or anything like that. As it does with a lot of spaces it can really help make them just way more comfortable to be in.
