Metal Building Insulation

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 for Metal Buildings

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.

Here is how to calculate the cost to insulate a building that is 12’ to 30’ wide:

Roof: (Width + 2’) x Frame Length x $1.50

Sides: Height x Frame Length x 2 sides x $1.50

Ends: (Height + 2’) x Width x 2 ends x $1.50

For example, if the frame of your building is 12′ x 20′, with sides that are 10′ tall, your cost would be:

Roof: (12 + 2) x 20 x $1.50 = $420

Sides: 10 x 20 x 2 x $1.50 = $600

Ends: (10 + 2) x 12 x 2 x $1.50 = $432

TOTAL: $1452

Please keep in mind that the metal building insulation prices are subject to change without notice.

The woven R17 insulation is a combination of aluminum foil, bubble material, and woven material which produce the R17 rating.

  • Thickness: 17.475 mil – .688″

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.

Here is how to calculate the cost to insulate a building that is 12’ to 30’ wide:

Roof: (Width + 2’) x Frame Length x $1.50

Sides: Height x Frame Length x 2 sides x $1.50

Ends: (Height + 2’) x Width x 2 ends x $1.50

For example, if the frame of your building is 12′ x 20′, with sides that are 10′ tall, your cost would be:

Roof: (12 + 2) x 20 x $3.00 = $840

Sides: 10 x 20 x 2 x $3.00 = $1200

Ends: (10 + 2) x 12 x 2 x $3.00 = $864

TOTAL: $2904
