Condensation in a storage unit can devastate your business. Water will wreck your customers’ property and place you in a dicey legal situation.
You could be on the hook for damages if your building is blamed for ruining your customer’s belongings. Water will also lead to mold and mildew which may be impossible to get rid of with anything less than an extensive building renovation. Avoid both these nightmare situations with the right product. There are many types of insulation, but spray-foam insulation is the best product for metal storage facilities.
Don’t Let Moisture Damage Your Business
Metal buildings and roofs are a top choice for storage businesses. Steel is durable and affordable. But without insulation, a metal building might have trouble with humidity and condensation. An uninsulated building will “sweat.” Heat alone won’t solve the problem because warm air rises and when it contacts a cold metal roof, condensation forms. Pooling water on a floor can be caused by a leaking roof, but often it results from condensation dripping from the ceiling and walls. Even a small amount of moisture is enough to create the perfect conditions for mildew. End the water-cycle in your building by insulating your roof with spray-foam insulation. If you’re constructing a new facility or retrofitting an old one, be sure to apply the right amount and type of insulation.
Get the Most From Your Money With Spray-Foam Insulation
Spray insulation is an economical and efficient choice for metal structures. Spray-foam forms a seamless, airtight layer, filling cracks and getting into hard-to-reach places. We can spray as little as an inch of insulation to keep the ceiling warm and dry. With a warm ceiling, condensation won’t be a problem. If you need to keep your storage facility warm, we may recommend a thicker application. Two inches of foam is enough to control the temperature of your metal building. Besides insulation, we often recommend a fire prevention treatment. Fire protection safeguards your property and your customer’s belongings. Insulating with spray foam does the following:
- Improves air quality by reducing humidity.
- Prevents condensation that leads to mildew and mold.
- Reduces the risk of water damage to electricals.
- Keeps water from pooling on floors.
- Controls climate for people and property.
