“When it comes to completing your man cave, RetroFoam did me well.”

Whether it be your man cave, workshop, second garage, or extra storage space, you want the right pole barn insulation to keep your pole barn at a comfortable temperature all year long. RetroFoam of Michigan is experienced with sealing up pole barns with foam insulation.
Insulating a Pole Barn
To insulate a pole barn, we would spray the walls with Icynene foam insulation, as well as the underside of the roof. Foam insulation will seal your building to reduce air leakage, and is especially beneficial to help reduce your energy bills if you heat and cool your building.
Closed Cell vs. Open Cell Insulation for Pole Barns
We have the capabilities to spray closed or open cell foam on pole barns, and there are reasons why one or the other may be better for your specific project.
If you have exposed walls, we would recommend spraying closed cell on the walls as its rigid nature will hold up to wear and tear. Closed cell insulation also provides a vapor barrier.
On the flip side, if your walls are studded and you plan to finish them off we suggest spraying open cell foam. It will expand to fill all the nooks and crannies between the studs and provide a great air barrier.
The Roof Deck
To complete the air seal of the pole barn, we suggest spraying open cell foam insulation on the roof deck. If your roof should ever leak, open cell foam will not hold water so you will be able to detect and fix leaks in a timely matter.
