Did you know – One third of the operating budget of a typical commercial/office building is spent on heating making it the single largest operating expense
Many metal buildings were constructed with little or no thought of what will happen when heat is introduced when a change of use occurs. When trying to keep employees & stock warm and dry. While they may stay somewhat warm, condensation will not prevent them from staying dry with stock, machines & tools getting contaminated.
Metal frame construction presents more testing problems than your usual moisture related challenges
The most damaging moisture within a building envelope is the result of warm moist inside air being exchanged with the cold outside air. As the moisture in the air condenses, it forms dew on the surface. Ecotite spray foam insulation is seamless and airtight, meaning cold and warm air will never meet. When using seamless spray foam insulation for metal roof insulation, it is impossible for the temperature to reach a dew point and create condensation on your roof.
With our years of experience, knowledge and working together as a team we will take all the stress out of the job guaranteeing to keep work interruption to a minimum. You can expect a neat hammered effect universal finish from us, giving you the option to leave exposed pleasingly bringing your doomed premises back to life instead of maybe having the additional cost of adding a false ceilings or painting. Metal roof condensation will help in this scenario.
Ecotite spray foam can be applied rapidly with minimal impact on production. With the spray foam being a single application with no extra stud or frame work required areas of 300 m2 can be covered in favorable conditions saving you time and money. As well as sealing minor cracks & bolt holes, eliminating condensation and dramatically reducing energy costs you also get the additional benefit of the foam stabilising the building fabric which will prolong the life of the roof by up to 25 years.
The benefits are dramatically reduced heating costs with a more comfortable working environment which is also found in hot summer months by the elimination of radiant heat transfer.
By making the area airtight additional problems caused by metal roof condensation are a thing of the past. The dramatic reduction in heating costs will quickly cover the cost of having the product installed.
