Project Profile: Spray Foam Osklaloosa, IA

The unique design of this building in Oskaloosa, IA was not an issue for the problem-solvers at Kinzler Construction Services!

The lack of depth available in much of the framing led us to install closed cell spray foam in order to maximize the R-Value in each cavity. Our expert installers sealed everything up while maintaining uniformity of depth. The design also created challenges in achieving the code-required 15-minute thermal barrier over the spray foam by traditional means. We applied DC 315 Thermal Barrier Coating over any areas where the foam would have to be left exposed.

We followed our proven process for quality installation by inspecting the completed job and grading our installers on the quality of their work. This building now has a level of efficiency, safety and comfort that could not be matched by any other insulation application.

Metal building located at Minnesota State Fairgrounds

Kinzler Construction Services was recently hired to help prepare for this epic fair by installing spray foam insulation and intumescent paint on a metal building at the fairgrounds. Our expert installers were under a tight timeline and got the job done quickly in hopes of keeping the thousands of visitors going through this building cooler! We followed our proven process for quality installation by inspecting the completed job and grading our installers on the quality of their work.

Project Profile. Metal Building Insulation

For a couple of years Go-Devil Boats, based in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, had been facing issues with their existing insulation which was falling and causing a mess. High-R Metal Building Solutions came to the table with a cost-effective solution to solve their insulation issue and improve the aesthetics of their facility.

With over 30,000 square feet of area to install, High-R called upon Kinzler Construction Services of Ames, Iowa and Garland and Jones Insulating of Tyler, Texas to attack this project with a high level of experience and professionalism. While installing the new RetroPan system, the High-R crews worked safely around the employees of Go-Devil Boats on a daily basis, and kept up the production rates of both companies.

The project was completed in approximately 5 weeks, coming in on schedule and budget, without any major setbacks. With a satisfied customer and a great looking facility, this is just another success story for the High-R team.

Curtis Sturgill gets published by Metal Construction News

Curtis Sturgill, National Sales Manager for High-R Metal Building Insulation, a patented product owned and offered by Kinzler Construction Services, published an article titled “Retrofit Insulation, What Should You Know?” on Metal Construction News’ website in September.

Below are some key points and several quotes from Curtis Sturgill that appear in the article.

1.Air Sealing:

“No matter what type of insulation system you decide to use when retrofitting your structure, if it is not properly air sealed you might as well light your wallet on fire.”

2. Cavity Insulation:

“Attempting to get a fiberglass batt to fit in an existing cavity with no air pockets for condensation to occur is like finding a needle in a haystack.”

3. Retrofit Thermal Blocks?

“With an existing building it is next to impossible to add a thermal block unless you address the topside of the roof in some manner.”

4. Return on Investment

“There is a lot to be said for material R-values and installed R-values, a big misunderstanding by a lot of consumers and even some in our industry.”

5. Choosing the Right Company

“With the hassle of working around existing equipment and mechanical units, limiting downtime or slowed production of your employees, it is just as important to choose the right company as it is to find the right product.”
