How to save money by insulating your barns
Insulation is essential to the long-term saving of funds. Insulating your barns will prevent heat loss, increase structural integrity, and prevent dust, wind, and debris from common exterior cracks. Also, insulating your barn has the opposite effect when it is hot outside; your barn will become a cooling agent. Your animals will significantly appreciate this when they need to find refuge from the sun.

The Permiter Slab
Your pole barn sits on a concrete slab that can significantly contribute to heat loss in your metal building or barn. To insulate the space, we recommend building owners insulate the perimeter to help keep heat inside the building.
Metal walls are terrible at preventing heat transfer. Fortunately, spray foam insulation is excellent at countering this concern by creating a barrier of polyurethane foam.
The Top Inside (or "Attic")
Insulating the top part, the attic, your pole barn, or metal building helps prevent warm air from escaping out the top of your building (this phenomenon is called the chimney effect).
