This is one of the countless LCRA substation control houses we insulated. 2″ closed cell on the walls, 4″ on the ceiling! Talk about overkill, these could easily be walk in freezers, and survive a direct hit from a tornado!
Here is the battery room of an LCRA control house. Well insulated would be an understatement.
Portable buildings are great for extra storage, or even for using as a living space. Add 1″ of closed cell spray foam and you’ve got an awesome cabin for deer camp!
It’s important to understand what a building envelope is. The porch roof in this picture is the floor of an upstairs loft inside the house. Without insulation here, a large amount of heat transfer would occur between outside and inside. That means a higher energy bill every time the outdoor temperature is different than the indoor temperature.
This was sort of an experimental job. The building is used for processing poultry, and the owner wanted the walls waterproofed so they can be easily washed. We applied an elastomeric coating, designed to stand up to punishing weather on a roof, over 2lb. insulation foam. Think of it as paint on steroids.
Here is the finished product in the processing room.
Elastomeric coating was applied over the foam, purlins, and r-panel to create a seamless finish.
