Steel buildings are versatile, durable, and affordable. They’re easy to construct, easy to maintain, and they last a long while. But sometimes, our building advisors get questions on their ability to contain heat. “Do we get insulation?” They say. “What are you using it for?” We say. For the very reasons previously listed, Quonset huts are often converted into cottages, guest houses, or even primary homes. Homes need to be insulated if you’re living somewhere it gets cold. With the way that the weather is changing these days it’s probably safe to insulate every building you construct. You never know how the weather is going to be in the coming winters.
Our arches don’t typically require insulation for storage purposes or even for livestock. The way they’re engineered as well as the material they’re constructed out of both lean to manage hot and cold temperatures. The steel will reflect the sun in the day and maintain the cool interior the shade provides in the summer. It’ll also keep the heat in (if it’s being heated) in the winter. This isn’t the case with all metal buildings. But as a testament to the magnicicent longevity of the arch and resilient nature of good, solid quality steel, our buildings are naturally insulated. To an extent.
When it comes to your building in the winter you’re going to want to use spray foam insulation. Spray foam insulation can be pricey, but considering the naturally insular properties of our arches you don’t have to go all out with your insulation budget. Consider your options locally, then procure a quote, and insulate your building in an afternoon. You can also do it yourself if you’re so inclined, and if you’ve bought and built one of our arches you’re probably a go-getter anyway. There’s some tutorials online, but if you’re unsure it’s best to go with a professional. Spray foam insulation is exceedingly difficult to remove.

By ordering a do-it-yourself kit, you are saving yourself lots of money.

With us, there are no hidden fees. What you pay is the true cost of your structure. You also get the peace of mind knowing that your building has been constructed with care. Professional installers often rush through construction jobs in order to make it on to their next site more quickly, overlooking small details that may be important to you!
