Should I Insulate Under My Metal Roof?
The Short Answer is: Absolutely!
In order to combat heat loss and condensation that builds up with moisture, most building manufactures recommend insulating a metal roof. This is the minimum requirement as it’s typically best to insulate the entire structure.
Heavy rains and snow that build up around the building can create a cold outside panel and condensation will most likely develop. Condensation always forms on the warm air side similar to a glass of ice water. Water forms on the outside of the glass.
Choose an insulation with an R-value that will work for you climate controlled environment. Saving just $100 per month in energy costs can add up to $24,000 over a 20 year life span. Protect your steel building by investing in a quality insulation system.
