Eliminating Condensation Problems in Metal Buildings
While rot and termites don’t pose a threat to metal buildings, metal buildings can still suffer damage from excessive moisture.
Damp insulation is less effective at regulating temperatures in a metal building and may promote mildew growth, making the buildings interior smell musty and potentially contribute to allergy or asthma problems.
Wet insulation that’s in contact with metal surfaces can cause corrosion, even on surface-treated metals.
The panels and fasteners may begin to rust, leading to premature failure of these materials.
So why do metal buildings sweat?
How can we prevent or stop our metal buildings from sweating?
In the article below, we examine those questions.
