- 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.
- 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
In many barns, air chutes have blown out and are laying on top of the insulation.
Poor insulation causes condensation that rusts the metal.
Over time, loose fill insulation settles, losing its r-value.
