Texas Energy Codes

Damaged or inadequate roof or wall insulation in metal buildings can prove tremendously costly for metal building owners, adding up to thousands of dollars annually in increased thermal energy bills. That's why so many Texas steel building owners have turned to Steel Building Insulation, a division of Building Outlet Corp., for solutions for their insulation repair needs.

Steel Building Insulation is a trusted, leading insulation company that has specialized in insulation systems, repair and retrofit projects for metal building roofs and walls for more than 30 years. We help Texas consumers maintain comfortable interior temperatures in their steel buildings throughout the year while minimizing the budget strain caused by expensive heating and cooling equipment. Our insulation panels and fiberglass insulation blankets are compliant with the standards set by the North American Insulation Manufacturers Association (NAIMA), and available with a variety of R-values, depending on your desired level of effectiveness.

We carry a full line of accessories and attachment products for insulation repair or insulation retrofit for projects of any size. Not only does retrofitting insulation between roof purlins or wall girts of existing structures reduce heating and cooling costs, but it will also address potentially damaging condensation issues within your metal building. We generally recommend double-layer, high R-value insulation systems with laminated vapor retardants called facings for metal buildings where condensation is of concern.

Properly insulating your metal building is critical year-round, and the initial cost of installing an effective insulation system pays for itself in as little as two years in the form of instantly lowered energy bills. Additionally, some energy improvement projects qualify for tax credits as high as $1.80 per square foot. More information on potential tax savings is available here.
