Insulation for Pole Barns

Pole barn insulation with Gonz Insulation ensures your pole barn is well-protected and able to provide the desired thermal resistance. We work with a variety of pole barn types and sizes. Notably, this includes residential and commercial garages, shops, horse barns, homes, and more. Here at Gonz Insulation, we also understand the unique complexities that are involved with pole barn insulation, and our skilled and experienced contractors ensure your insulation is properly installed with quality results and in a timely manner.

The Types of Pole Barn Insulation We Offer

We offer three primary types of insulation for pole barns, which are spray foam, fiberglass, and cellulose. We offer both closed-cell spray foam and open-cell spray foam, and we typically recommend one of these two options as it is the highest-quality insulation material available.

  • Spray Foam Insulation (Recommended Solution): Spray foam contains polyol resin and isocyanate. The special part of these chemicals is that they expand when they are mixed together. In fact, they expand to more than 30 times their original volume. This makes it perfect for insulating critical areas of your pole barn. We offer two types of spray foam insulation — closed-cell spray foam and open-cell spray foam. Here is a closer breakdown of each option:

    • Open-cell spray foam insulation – This insulation material expands much more than closed-cell. It offers excellent noise control benefits that are ideal if you live in a hectic area with a lot of outside noise.
    • Closed-cell spray foam insulation – This form of spray foam insulation is widely considered the best optional available. It is denser than open-cell and subsequently far more durable. It also is more resistant to water and moisture as well.

  • Fiberglass Insulation: Fiberglass insulation is a reliable solution that has been around for numerous decades. It uses glass particles (that are turned into fibers) to create an insulation material that should last for more than a decade. It does not offer the same quality of R-value as spray foam, but it may be a good choice if you have a more limited insulation budget.

  • Cellulose Insulation: Cellulose uses recycled paper to create insulation material. It is used less for pole barns, but it may be an option in certain cases. Like fiberglass, it does not offer the same level of R-value quality as spray foam, but it is generally a more budget-friendly solution.

  • Insulation Removal: We also offer insulation removal services if you have existing insulation material that is outdated and/or damaged. The removal process requires the use of proper safety equipment and practices, and there may be certain local and Missouri regulations that must be followed as it pertains to disposal. We ensure all removal and disposal processes are followed according to code.

The Benefits of Upgrading Your Pole Barn Insulation

You run a large risk of complications with your pole barn if you do not have reliable insulation material installed by a professional. There are many benefits to proper insulation; the exact benefits depend on the purpose of your pole barn. However, here are some of the more commonly reported benefits clients have after the insulation process is complete.

  • Minimize condensation inside your pole barn: excessive condensation inside your pole barn can lead to moisture damage to all that you have stored as well as negatively impact its foundation. Pole barn insulation with Gonz Insulation ensures an air seal that does not allow water and moisture to enter.

  • Reduce your monthly energy costs: Upgraded insulation can reduce your monthly energy costs by 15% or more. This is valuable during the cold winter months as cold air could otherwise enter and make it much harder to achieve the ideal temperature inside your pole barn.

  • Protect the structure of your pole barn: Insulation helps protect your pole barn from damage caused by wear and tear, water damage, and more. It supports the roof as well as the overall foundation. Subsequently, pole barn insulation from a reputable provider in the Saint Louis area can help you lengthen the lifespan of your pole barn’s structural foundation.

  • Keep unwanted pests away: Insulation also serves to seal areas where pests could enter and wreak havoc. This is particularly important if you intend to store animals inside as many pests carry diseases and harmful bacteria, along with eating any feed you have stored and chewing and clawing anything and everything they can find. Regardless of the purpose of your pole barn, protecting it from pests with proper insulation material is essential.

The Gonz Insulation Process for Pole Barn Insulation

Pole barn insulation services with Gonz Insulation begin with a detailed assessment of your insulation needs. We can provide you with a free estimate during the initial call, but a more thorough inspection may be necessary for a precise quote.

Once the plan is in place, then we can schedule a service time that is convenient for you. Our technicians begin with the removal of your existing insulation (if applicable). We also dispose of the old insulation materials properly and according to local regulations. This can also be a dangerous process if there are animal droppings, mold growth, etc. Our technicians use the proper safety equipment and take the necessary precautions.

From there, we start the insulation of the new material. We may ask that you leave the property temporarily while we install the material, particularly if you choose spray foam. This ensures the safety of everyone during the process. With that said, our technicians work diligently to complete the job as quickly as possible. We also clean the entire area once we are finished installing the new insulation, leaving the work area better and cleaner than we found it.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pole Barn Insulation

We encourage you to ask any questions or raise any concerns you have about pole barn insulation with our professional team at Gonz Insulation. Below are answers to some of the more frequently asked questions that we receive. This should help you make more informed decisions about your pole barn insulation needs.

How Long Does Pole Barn Insulation Take?2022-11-18T04:06:50+00:00

We are usually able to complete projects within a day (and less than half a day in some cases). However, this largely depends on the size of your property, the type of insulation material you choose, and how much existing insulation needs removal. We can provide you with a more precise price and timeline estimate during your initial call with Gonz Insulation.

Is Spray Foam Insulation Safe?2022-11-18T04:06:37+00:00

Spray foam is entirely safe. However, since it does involve the use of chemicals during installation, we may ask that you leave the premises while we are installing the spray foam. Our contractors wear the appropriate safety equipment. We also ensure a proper cleanup process and disposal of your old insulation material. There are no notable long-term risks of spray foam after installation, and it has regularly been used for insulation purposes since the 1940s.

How Long Will My New Insulation Last?2022-11-18T04:06:30+00:00

This largely depends on the type of insulation you choose and the quality of the insulation. When you choose Gonz Insulation — an experienced and reputable provider in the Saint Louis area — then you can trust that your insulation should last at least 20 years. Of course, each material has a different lifespan. While fiberglass and cellulose should last between 20 and 30 years, you can expect spray foam insulation to last for more than 50 years (and closer to a lifetime in many cases).
