# Kentucky IECC Energy Codes | COMcheck Compliance

Steel Building Insulation, a division of Building Outlet Corp., has been a leading insulation company for residents in Kentucky for more than 30 years.

Steel Building Insulation’s business model is such that we are not tied to one particular manufacturer, which means that our full line of name-brand, top quality products are available for Kentucky consumers at prices reduced as much as 50 percent. Utilize our online price quote.

Why insulate your metal building? Steel building insulation serves as a barrier which slows down the movement of heated or cooled air, resulting in considerable energy savings over time. While in the past, investing in a high-quality insulation system might take as long as seven to 10 years to repay, given today’s rising energy costs, that payback period has been slashed by as much as two-thirds. In addition to tremendous energy savings, steel building insulation comes with a variety of other benefits, including condensation prevention, sound absorption and increased user comfort and lighting efficiency.

Our extensive product line offers both single and double-layer insulation systems with a wide range of R-values for increasing levels of effectiveness. We offer facing materials of various strengths that serve as vapor barriers or retardants when affixed to the fiberglass blankets, and tabs to create a finished edge for the seams. Banding may be used to attach metal roof insulation, and is commonly used in both double-layer, high R-value metal roof insulation systems and retrofit insulation applications. InsulHold is a common method used in new construction projects that require high R-values, or in retrofit applications to hold insulation securely in place. Stick pins are also frequently used in retrofit insulation. Contact us for more information on our insulation options and attachment systems available to Kentucky consumers and businesses.
