Why Insulate Your Pole Barn?

The main reason for pole barn insulation is to make it more comfortable indoors. Insulation will also protect any animals that you may have inside, protect machinery and equipment, and increase the life of the building itself.

A well-regulated temperature inside the pole barn leads to more savings on your annual energy bills.

Types of Insulation for Pole Barns

Here is a list of common pole barn insulation types:

  • Spray foam: Closed-cell spray foam is often the choice for pole barn insulation where the walls are left exposed. Being highly rigid, it can endure heavy machinery or equipment impacts without destruction. Closed-cell spray foam will also not retain any moisture so you will not have to worry about mold or mildew problems. Since foam insulation is not a source of food for pests, the issue of a pest infestation will not arise.

  • Fiberglass: Is essentially plastic, which is reinforced with fine pieces of glass fiber. Fiberglass is inexpensive and easy to install. However, a disadvantage of using this material is that the binders that are used in fiberglass absorb moisture. There are still chances of mold and mildew attacking it. Fiberglass when used in pole barns should not be disturbed much because tiny particulate matter can be released into the air thus causing respiratory issues and coughing problems.

  • Foam boards: You can also use foam boards or rigid foam to insulate the exposed walls of a pool barn. Various thicknesses and lengths of rigid foam are available today, with the most common ones made from polyurethane, polystyrene, and polyisocyanurate. The advantages of using rigid foam include its water resistance and ease of installation. Typically made with closed-cell foam, it adds strength to pole barn buildings. However, you must cut each foam board sheet correctly to fit inside the pole barn.



  • Insulating a pole barn creates a stronger structure that will last many more years than if it was not insulated.
  •  Insulation of a Pole barn when professionally done helps to regulate indoor temperatures, thus keeping it cool in summer and warm in winter.

  • You may use your pole barn for multiple purposes and spend time there because of optimum temperatures throughout.
  • Though the initial insulation costs for insulation may be high, you will see a decrease in energy bills in the long term.
