Idaho Energy Codes

As utility costs continue to rise across the United States, many Idaho business owners, contractors, architects and do-it-your-selfers are looking for ways to cut back on their energy bills. Roughly 50 – 70 percent of the energy used in most commercial buildings goes toward heating and cooling, and this is largely due to common issues such as inadequate insulation and air leakage.

By properly insulating your steel building, whether it be a garage, storage area, greenhouse, hangar, gym or whatever type of building you have, you can drastically reduce your energy costs while also experiencing numerous other benefits, such as increased noise control and user comfort, improved indoor air quality and minimized strain on our natural resources. We are a leading provider of metal building insulation and retrofit insulation to Idaho and the surrounding states. In fact, with access to more than 400 installers and 50 different laminating and shipping points from coast to coast, more than 50 percent of our vinyl-faced insulation volume distributed nationally is used in metal building retrofit application.

We supply steel building insulation systems and vinyl insulation retrofit materials that offer a broad range of R-values. The higher the R-value, the more effective the insulation, and if you need a hand in determining what your particular building needs, contact our sales staff at 1-800-486-8415. Our staff will assist you in selecting the best fiber glass blanket sizes, facings and tabs for your particular project. Whether you’re in the market for metal roof insulation, ceiling or wall insulation, we can help! We offer the highest quality products at the lowest possible price.
