Monoslope Corrosion Repair


HOG BARN CORROSION IS CAUSE BY INEFFECTIVE INSULATION

If your steel is full of rust and cor­ro­sion caused by con­den­sa­tion in your hog barn, you need to insu­late. We secure air chutes so they won’t blow out, then we spray foam them to ensure a strong, air-tight seal. We top off your cel­lu­lose to an R-40.

WHAT CAUSES HOG BARN RUST AND CORROSION?

Air chutes that are not prop­erly installed blow out, allow­ing cold air to fil­ter into the attic and down into the barn. Old insu­la­tion set­tles and allows heat to escape up into the attic. Con­den­sa­tion is cre­ated where the cold air and hot air meet. Con­den­sa­tion rusts the steel.
