Blanket insulation for steel buildings is the most popular type of insulation. It comes in the form of batts or rolls which consist of flexible fibers, usually fiberglass. If properly installed and maintained, this insulation will help buildings become highly durable, energy-efficient, and well-ventilated for longer.
In steel buildings, installing insulation controls heat flow, minimizes condensation buildup, reduces exterior noise level, and increases lighting efficiency. Installing the right kind of commercial insulation aids in controlling the conduction of outside temperatures. This way, steel buildings stay warmer when the temperature drops and cooler when the temperature rises. The options for steel building insulation are limited and three factors need to be addressed when considering which type of insulation to choose: condensation, cold, and radiant heat.
Batt and blanket fiberglass insulation is an excellent insulator specifically designed for use in steel buildings.
Facing is the part of the insulation which faces the inside of the building. In choosing batt and blanket fiberglass insulation, the facing material must be carefully selected, especially if it is going to be left exposed. They vary in three key qualities – durability, permeability, and workability. The durability of the facing, which determines how well it can stand up to physical stress, withstanding ripping and tearing. The permeability pertains to the rate of water vapor transmission as steel buildings need to have a good vapor barrier to resist moisture. Workability is measured based on the minimum temperature that is required for its installation.
The insulation capacity and quality of batt fiberglass insulation in Boston, MA is directly proportional to the thickness of the material. Since the power of insulation is measured relatively in R-values, the thicker the fiberglass, the higher the R-value, the more effective a layer of insulation is.
Today there are various options and technology available for insulation in steel buildings and other venues. Choosing the right type of installation is a must to achieve optimal results. If you need an insulation expert to handle your insulation project, contact Custom Insulation Company, Inc.

Spray foam insulation delivers huge heating and cooling efficiencies for you home at value pricing. Spray foam insulation is like wrapping a blanket around your entire home that keeps your conditioned air from escaping.
Spray foam insulation comes in the two types: open cell and closed cell foam. The less expensive version is open-cell which insulates well and is extremely effective at blocking noise. Closed-cell spray foam insulation is denser, and because of that, is more efficient at keeping air and moisture from penetrating walls.
Common to both types is the fact that the products add real structure to the home. Since it fills even the smallest of cracks, high winds have little to grab and thus protects your roof and walls from the damaging effects of high winds.

Spray foam insulation is a liquid applied insulation product that covers the vertical rafters and is applied to the attic ceiling. Immediately the spray foam insulation expands and fills any holes, sealing off the attic from the outside, thus making it into its own conditioned space. This eliminates the need to be ventilated. When the two types of insulation are combined, they create a sealed air space that saves energy. There are drawbacks. There is more space to heat and cool and your HVAC equipment might not be able to handle the upgrade.
With that said, the benefits of combining the different types of insulation far exceed the drawbacks. Even though your space needs to be conditioned, that doesn't necessarily mean pumping in air-conditioning, it may only mean dehumidifying the space. A simple dehumidifier can fix that problem and may not even be needed at all.
