Why Spray Foam Insulation?
For metal buildings, shop homes, or agricultural buildings, there’s really no better way to insulate than spray foam insulation.
Life Long Lasting Vapor/Air Seal
Spray foam insulation has been around the block. Spray foam insulation was first developed by Otto Bayer in the 1940’s. Throughout the years they have made significant improvements and reformulations and is now one of the leading insulation types worldwide used in shops, barns, houses – you name it. But what are the significant advantages spray foam has over other leading insulating materials? Let’s get into that.
Lifelong air/vapor Seal
Structural closed-cell foam deters metal from warping
Easy to exchange metal paneling if needed to replace
When spray foam goes onto your metal it expands into all the cracks and crevices and solidifies in place. Leaving your shop metal much less exposed to the elements, while protecting yourself from the wind. Spray foam will not only stop any moisture buildup due to condensation but also give structural strength to the metal paneling will likely add decades onto your metal building.
Let’s Talk R-Value.
R-Value is a measure of how well a barrier, such as a layer of insulation, window or ceiling resists the flow of heat only. R-value does not take into account wind, moisture, or humidity. It ONLY measures the resistance to heat transfer.
This is why we outperform R-60 batts with just 2” of closed-cell spray foam(13.7 R) in any weather. Really to cut down on your exposure to the elements you have to cut down what is exposing those elements to you. This is why a lifelong air/vapor seal is so important.
But is it Safe?
Spray foam will go on as a 2 part liquid and react to expand and solidify into all the nooks and crannies of your metal building. During this process, the foam will off-gas for up to 24 hrs. After this 24 hour period, the foam is completely done reacting and will never off-gas anything harmful to you or your loved ones.
