If you're thinking about adding a metal building to your property you're probably doing your research and learning that there are basically 2 options for a new metal building: a pre-fabricated kit (think large-scale Lego® style) that you'd install yourself (or with hired help) and a broker who will deliver and assemble/build the metal building on site at the time of delivery.
A metal or steel building kit is just what it sounds like. You're getting a "building in a box" with all the framing, fasteners, siding/roofing, and accessories needed to complete the shell. One advantage of buying a metal building kit is that it's usually cheaper and faster to have delivered than the alternative. Although your kit may include everything you need to build it, the don't include insulation so oftentimes people are left trying to figure out what insulation is right for them. If you're getting a metal building kit, you need to choose the best metal building insulation for it.
You want to look for an insulation that provides protection from radiant heat and an insulation that is a vapor barrier to help control condensation. BlueTex™ offers both in one simple layer; pure aluminum reflects 97% of the sun's heat back and away from the building interior, and the foam & glossy white layers prevent moisture from passing through so your building can stay dry and moisture-free. We also provide full installation instructions for how to add the metal building insulation before or after the frame is constructed, so you have options no matter how you're building your metal building kit.
If you have a choice, ideally you would install this insulation on the exterior of the metal frame as the building is being put together. This allows for the maximum wall cavity depth (for adding R-value if it's a conditioned building) and make installation seamless. However don't sweat it if you can't install during the build, you can always add your metal building insulation later on, from the inside of the building.
A steel building kit is a durable and flexible way to add a metal building to your property and they're readily available too. You can control how fast the installation takes and when you're done, you'll have a durable building for just about any use. Plus you get to choose the best insulation for your building's use so your building can be more energy efficient and comfortable than traditional buildings. When you consider all the pros of going this route, it's easy to see why steel building kits are a popular choice for many people looking to build a metal building.
