Do you use a Quonset hut for extra storage or workspace? Many people have these prefabricated units on their properties, but find them frustrating in less-than-ideal weather, or unreliable for sensitive storage away from elements like moisture, excessive heat and even pests.
Applying spray foam insulation to the walls and ceiling of your Quonset hut, however, can turn it into a completely functional space with increased building integrity and comfort. Properly finished, a Quonset hut is usable to store valuable items away from weather elements and can even be used as living space. The foam layer keeps condensation out in the hot months when the metal is so radiant that it has a huge effect on the internal temperature. The layer doesn’t even have to be super thick, just a few inches turns the building into an insulated space.
No other insulation material can convert a Quonset hut the way spray foam can. The roofs are general corrugated making it almost impossible to adhere traditional solid insulation sufficiently. If you could install it, the likelihood that it would fall off within a year is high. A few inches of closed cell foam can make a permanent and dramatic difference.
