Nevada Energy Codes

Metal buildings with faulty, damaged or inadequate insulation can be tremendously costly for Nevada building owners. While damaged insulation can lead to a sharp rise in ownership costs, it is among the more manageable problems that a building owner can face. Steel Building Insulation, a division of Building Outlet Corp., has been offering low-cost building insulation solutions to architects, contractors and do-it-yourselfers throughout Nevada for more than 30 years.

Whether you’re looking to keep your building cool in the summer, warm in the winter or condensation-free year-round, Steel Building Insulation’s complete line of name-brand, top quality insulation blankets and related products will have you equipped with the materials you need – and at a fraction of the price. We offer both single and double-layer insulation blanket rolls in a wide range of R-values, and insulation facings that range from the industry standard WMP-VR to the heavy duty WMP-50 and GYMGUARD varieties for walls prone to heavy traffic. We also offer tabs (the extension of the vinyl facing past the fiberglass insulation blanket) in an assortment of lengths, and a variety of seal options and attachment methods to meet the needs of your particular project. We also carry Sealed N Safe thermal blocks, which can substantially increase insulation performance and can save metal building owners thousands – if not tens of thousands – in energy, building and maintenance costs.

While insulating your metal building at the time of construction is often the most cost-effective method of installation, Steel Building Insulation also specializes in vinyl insulation repair and retrofit insulation projects, both of which result in considerably reduced energy costs and therefore pay for themselves in only a minute fraction of the building’s lifetime. Regardless of whether you’re looking to insulate a new metal building or outfit an existing structure, we are able to offer the industry’s lowest steel building insulation prices by sourcing our building insulation from a variety of name-brand metal building insulation manufacturers, resulting in the highest quality product at the lowest possible price for our Nevada consumers.
