Metal Building applications
While most people think closed cell is the answer for insulating steel buildings with spray foam, the truth of that is really whether the walls are exposed or not. Open cell is a great air barrier if your walls will be enclosed, while closed cell is much sturdier for walls that will be exposed.
One reason people are wary of open cell is that there are some metal building spray insulation that absorb moisture. Those products wick moisture and hold it against the metal building which will lead to rust.
As long as your contractor is using premium products, you won’t have to worry about those kinds of issues. For example, the open cell spray foam we use doesn’t retain water.
