Barn Attic Insulation


Fea­tures

  • Ther­mal Insu­la­tion
    Barn attics should have enough insu­la­tion to meet an R-value of 40. In many barn attics, the loose-fill insu­la­tion has set­tled and the top of the rafters are exposed. This causes heat loss.
  • Rust & Cor­ro­sion Con­trol
    Heat loss causes con­den­sa­tion which can rust the barn steel. Installing the cor­rect insu­la­tion elim­i­nates con­den­sa­tion and stops the rust­ing process.
  • Air Chutes
    In some barns, the air chutes have blown out and are lay­ing on top of the insu­la­tion. We install air chutes with screws and secure them with spray foam insu­la­tion to ensure a tight seal.

    Air Chutes that are not properly installed blow out. Cold air infiltrates the attic and filters down into the barn. Old insulation settles and allows heat to escape from below. Condensation is created where cold and hot air meet. Condensation rusts the steel.

Main­te­nance Benefits

  • Gives attics the R-40 they need to pre­vent con­den­sa­tion and rusting
  • R-40 also pre­vents rust­ing on the rafter plates
  • Energy sav­ings
  • Cor­rect insu­la­tion in barn attics pre­vents costly metal replace­ment repairs later

Poor insulation causes condensation that rusts the metal.

Poor insu­la­tion causes con­den­sa­tion that rusts the metal.

Over time, loose fill insulation settles, losing its r-value.
