DEAR POLE BARN GURU: We had just gotten a Cleary pole barn put up and are in the process of adding insulation. Have seen at Menards that they offer the 6″x6′ rolls and was wondering if this would be adequate for what I’m looking for. Thanks. BRAD in MCCOOK
Cleary Buildings typically have sidewall columns and single trusses spaced every eight feet. If this is your particular case, then six foot wide rolls of insulation would probably be far down the list of what will or will not be adequate.
If you are looking for a product which provides a high R value and reduces or eliminates air infiltration, you may want to investigate closed cell spray foam.
