Rhode Island Energy Codes

Steel Building Insulation is the one stop go-to source for metal building insulation systems, repair materials and accessories in the State of Rhode Island.

Insulation damage caused by condensation, pests, tearing and a variety of other issues can result in substantial increases in thermal energy bills and prove tremendously costly for Rhode Island metal building owners. Repairing faulty, damaged or inadequate insulation is far more affordable than you may think. In fact, due to a business model that relies on volume pre-purchasing and extremely low overhead costs, Steel Building Insulation is able to offer our Rhode Island consumers discounts as high as 50 percent off of industry standards on all products and accessories needed for insulation repair jobs of any magnitude.

Whether your objective is to keep your metal building cool in the summer or warm in the winter, repairing or replacing your building or commercial space's current inadequate insulation system will drastically reduce your usage of expensive heating and cooling equipment. Many of our New England consumers cite moisture caused by rain and/or humidity as their primary need for insulation repair, which is why it is essential that a vapor barrier, or insulation facing, be installed and properly sealed so that it adequately protects the fiberglass insulation blankets. It is also important to note that proper ventilation is critical where moisture exists, and that the thermal performance of insulation suffers greatly when wet. Where condensation in the roof of a metal building is of great concern, we generally recommend double-layer, high R-value systems, as these have proven tremendously effective in preventing condensation related issues.
