Insulating container homes.

Traditionally home insulating is done on the inside with Fiberglass batts or rock wool, insulating a container home in this way leads only to condensation and corrosion on the inside walls due to moister infiltration thru interior finish and vapor barrier.

Insulating is best done with insulating spray foam or Polyurethane Foam; this insulating material sticks to steel walls and depending on thickness sprayed, you can expect R3.5 per inch for open cell or R7 for closed cell foam per inch.

Spray Foam Insulation rust proofs the interior walls, seals the building and eliminates energy robbing cold air transfer and the related problems with mould, mildew and condensation problems, steel is an excellent conductor, therefore it’s also a good idea to give the outside a thin layer of insulating foam to prevent bridging.
