Insulation for Metal Buildings

Insulation for a metal building in Saint Louis, MO is different than insulation for residential properties. Metal buildings are more vulnerable to temperature fluctuations; they tend to get colder during winter and can get unbearably hot during the summer months. Metal building insulation helps prevent major temperature fluctuations. This is important regardless of the building’s purpose.

Types of Metal Buildings We Work With

Whether the metal building is used as a storage facility and warehouse or as a wedding venue and social gathering center (or one of the many other types of facilities we can insulate), it is essential to have proper insulation. We work with residential, commercial, and industrial clients throughout the Saint Louis area. Here are some of the more common types of metal buildings for which we can provide insulation:

  • Residential structures
  • Garages
  • Workshops
  • Storage facilities
  • Warehouses
  • Commercial centers
  • Industrial facilities
  • Airplane hangars
  • Agricultural centers

You name the building type, and we can provide the necessary insulation for it. Here at Gonz Insulation, we have a large enough team to handle insulation projects of all sizes, ensuring quality results and fast service delivery times.

Types of Metal Building Insulation We Provide

Spray foam insulation is the best type of insulation material for metal buildings. It offers the highest R-value for reduced energy costs and lasts for close to 100 years in many cases. However, we also offer fiberglass insulation and cellulose insulation if you have a more limited initial budget. Below is a closer explanation of the different types of metal building insulation materials we offer for our clients throughout the Saint Louis region.

  • Open-Cell Spray Foam Insulation: Open-cell spray foam insulation is a popular form of spray foam that expands to more than 30 times its original volume. A unique advantage of open-cell spray foam is its ability to control noise levels. It is also generally more affordable than closed-cell, while still providing the same material and similar benefits.

  • Closed-Cell Spray Foam Insulation:  Closed-cell spray foam is denser than open-cell. It provides the highest R-value of any material available on the market. In fact, its R-value is usually between 6 and 7 per inch. Closed-cell spray foam is much more durable than other material options, and it can greatly reduce energy costs inside your metal building.

  • Fiberglass and Cellulose Insulation:  These are more traditional forms of metal building insulation. Fiberglass insulation is made using tiny glass particles that are spun into fibers. Cellulose is made with recycled paper. Both have similar R-values (although cellulose may have a slightly higher R-value on average). They are also easier to install and cost-effective.

6 Benefits of Insulating Metal Buildings with Spray Foam

Insulation plays a critical role in energy efficiency, indoor comfort, structural support, noise control, and damage prevention. Here is more detailed information about the benefits of metal building insulation with Gonz Insulation.

  • Optimal thermal resistance: The primary purpose of insulation is to provide heat flow resistance. This subsequently controls and lowers your heating and cooling costs. Gonz Insulation offers the highest quality insulation materials (including spray foam) for optimal thermal resistance. In fact, you can achieve as much as 15% reductions on your monthly heating and cooling costs with spray foam insulation

  • Improved structural support: Insulation offers much more than thermal regulation. In fact, insulation can also improve the structural support for your metal building. This reduces the risk of complications such as a roof that is collapsing. However, to ensure this benefit, quality installation is essential. That is why you should trust the pros at Gonz Insulation, who have years of experience with insulation services and a proven track record in St. Louis and surrounding areas.

  • Increased comfort and air quality: In simplest terms, reliable insulation keeps air from outdoors outside and clean air from your HVAC unit inside your metal building. This helps ensure drafts and other forms of air infiltration do not compromise the overall air quality and comfort inside your metal building.

  • Noise reduction: Insulation material absorbs sounds. This is an important benefit particularly if you live in a noisy area or you simply want to create a quiet and relaxed atmosphere inside your metal building.

  • Pest and water damage prevention: Pests notoriously destroy the structure of metal buildings. One of the best ways to keep this from happening is with the installation of quality insulation material (i.e. spray foam). Similarly, water and moisture infiltration can equally destroy your structure, especially if mold and mildew form. Our insulation solutions are incredibly resistant to water-related damage.

  • Increased property value: Last but not least, you can improve the value and ability to sell your property if ever the time came to do so by ensuring it has the proper insulation.

The Risks of Not Having Reliable Insulation for Your Metal Building

As discussed, your metal building is vulnerable to fluctuating temperatures if not properly insulated. This can lead to an uncomfortable atmosphere and poor air quality. Additionally, the risk of water and moisture damage is much greater without reliable insulation, which can lead to mold and mildew growth and the deterioration of items that are stored in the building. You can also expect much higher energy costs without proper insulation as well.
