Montana Energy Codes

Adequate insulation is one of the biggest concerns for Montana’s metal building owners, and even more so for those in parts of the state east of the Continental Divide, where especially long, harsh winters are common. Steel Building Insulation, a division of Building Outlet Corp., has been a leading provider of insulation materiald and related accessories for both new construction and retrofit insulation projects for more than 30 years.

Our full line of insulation options (both single and double-layer with a broad range of R-values), facing materials (ranging from the basic WMP-VR to the ultra-durable GYMGUARD), tabs, steel banding materials, thermal blocks and accessories including stick pins, InsulHold coils, patch tape and double-faced tape will equip you for any metal building insulation project large or small, and at discounts as high as 50 percent.

Reasons for insulating metal buildings vary, but most Montana building owners cite sky-high energy bills and condensation concerns among their primary reasons for insulating their steel structures. Building owners immediately realize the long-term financial and environmental paybacks that come with increasing energy efficiency, and experience a range of other benefits as well, such as noise reduction and enhanced light reflectivity.

Condensation is also valid concern for Montana’s metal building owners. When warm air comes in contact with cooler air, the warmer air holds the moisture. If warm air is to pass through faulty or inadequate insulation or steel members such as purlins, condensation can form, and the only method of prevention is to apply a thermal break on the roof purlins or wall girts.
