There are two types of insulation available for our metal buildings: Double Bubble insulation for moisture control, and Woven R17 insulation for moisture and temperature control. The Woven R17 insulation is thicker than Double Bubble insulation and provides an R-value of R17.
Double Bubble Insulation
Double Bubble insulation has a silver backing that goes against the sheeting on the building. The other side of the insulation (the side you see) is white. Double Bubble insulation is primarily used to control moisture. It prevents condensation on the inside surfaces of the building. It does not provide much temperature control.
The cost of the insulation is $1.50 per sq. ft. of wall and roof area to be covered.
Woven 17 Insulation for Metal Buildings
Woven R17 insulation is a combination of aluminum foil, bubble material, and woven material.
- Thickness: 17.475 mil – .688″
- Roll Size: 4′ x 98′
- Weight: 45.04 lbs per roll
- Reflectivity: 97%
The Woven R17 insulation, which has an R-value of 17, is the better option for controlling the temperature in your metal building.
The cost of the insulation is $3.00 per sq. ft. of wall and roof area to be covered.
