Confined livestock buildings require ventilation to remove moisture and heat during summer. However, it can be challenging to maintain air quality and consistent temperatures without a proper insulation layer. That’s why finding a high-performing insulation material is important to satisfy your specific building insulation requirements.

Why Install Livestock Building Insulation in North Carolina?

Insulation is important in livestock buildings as it lowers animal stress levels by maintaining moderate internal building temperatures. Spray foam insulation blocks most radiant heat and does well to lower indoor temperatures.

High-performance insulation also reduces the impact of the “black-globe effect” on animals. It means that with insulation, animals absorb less radiant energy, improving weight gain, mortality, and animals’ overall health.

Spray foam offers various performance options depending on the desired R-value. It’s also easier and quicker to install, lowering labor costs. Most importantly, it doesn’t harbor fibers or dust and won’t require you to wear respirators or protective gear in the building throughout its lifetime.

Determining the Levels of Livestock Building Insulation in North Carolina

Before you start your insulation project, you must determine the areas that need insulation, the required levels, and the best installation method. Generally, you’ll need to insulate the ceiling, roof, walls, floor, and foundation of your livestock building.

You’ll also need to devise ways to maximize insulation effectiveness, including preventing moisture, air sealing around doors and windows, and keeping out birds and rodents.

The specific level of insulation will depend on the intended use of the building and the need for heat conservation. Generally, open-front livestock buildings require no insulation in the walls and just sufficient (about R-4) in the roof to prevent condensation by maintaining warm surfaces.

Heated livestock buildings should meet an R-value of about 13 for the walls and 20 for the ceiling. Modified open-front buildings are enclosed, naturally ventilated, and unheated and should have roof and wall R-values of at least 13.

To put it into perspective, an open-front livestock building owner would need an inch of open-cell spray foam for the roof to prevent condensation. For a heated livestock building, you’d need about three inches of open-cell spray foam or two inches of closed-cell spray foam for the walls.

For modified open-front livestock buildings, you’d need to install about three inches of open-cell spray foam for the roof and walls or about two inches of closed-cell spray foam.
