Any guesses on how these homes are insulated ?
I showed one contractor that came in to work, and he seems to think they insulated the outside.

T'would be helpful if they included an exterior shot.

Presumably it's more effective for sound-deadening (as it was reported by a chemical industry in Brazil when it released a rubberized paint) and rustproofing than for actual thermal insulation.

I ve noticed they tend to have the galvanized start to really darken so a good white paint might help

You mean reflecting the sunlight more efficiently? Then maybe a good paintjob may also be worth as some sort of insulation, even though insulating properly would most likely remain a better approach while building a house with metallic roofing.
