 Morton vs Wick and rigid board insulation

Any advice between Morton or Wick? I seem to be leaning towards Morton.

Morton has a rigid board insulation, that can lightly insulate, and prevent condensation when you turn the heater on during the winter months (Iowa). Any advice, since this will add considerable cost to the project? Maybe I will have Morton put their own rigid board insulation on the roof, and I can add 4x8 sheets of foam on the side walls later. ????

 Morton vs Wick and rigid board insulation

I think I would forego any insulation they're offering and do it like a typical home would be done. I mean, use batts, or rolls of fiberglass, vapor barrier, then some sort of wall covering such as drywall, green or blue board, or 1/4" luan sheeting--painted or not. That way you can run electrical, gas, etc. behind the walls. Keep in mind that depending on ambient temp. inside v. outside, humidity and moisture in the concrete floor you could have a sweaty situation with moisture dripping off the ceiling panels if not done properly. And most likely the eave ends are not sealed. So you may want to install a flat ceiling across the bottoms of the trusses then let the area above the ceiling breathe (stay at outside temp like a home).

Chris; I'm in Iowa too. I don't mean to rain on your parade, but before you commit yopurself to ANY steel clad pole shed give a close look at a conventional frame building with a shingle roof. Shingle roofs don't leak, sweat or frost up. it's much easier to insulate, sheet rock, panel, wantever you want to do having conventional studs rather than poles to deal with. Now the amazing part, a conventional frame building with 2X6 studs costs amazingly little more than a pole shed. I just built my third frame shed and wouldn't even consider another pole shed. Check it out. Frank.
