The garage is no longer that extra structure that keeps our vehicle protected from the elements or an extra storage area for old clothes and seasonal decorations. Today, the garage is becoming a more versatile and optional living space. Those changes have also been the primary reasons why you should insulate your garage and questions regarding the right types of insulation for your garage (aka man cave, lady shack, workshop, etc.).
It doesn’t matter if you spend time working on your vehicle in the garage, hold meetings or game nights, or use your garage as a workshop or crafting area. If you heat your garage, then you should insulate your garage. Insulation will not only provide comfort but will also make it easier to heat, resulting in less work for your heating sources.
Types of Insulation for Your Garage
Most of the same types of processes and types of insulation you use for your home, you can also use to insulate your garage. Choosing the right option for your garage will depend on many factors, but ultimately, it will be the option that best meets your needs and budget.
The most widely used and easiest for DIY insulation projects, this is also the most affordable insulation option too. The one caution when using fiberglass is that it is susceptible to moisture, so that needs to be a consideration in planning your garage installation project.
Foam (Rigid Foam Board)
This insulation option is a popular choice for insulating garage doors. Rigid foam works well as a sound barrier too. This type of insulation is cut to fit, so it doesn’t offer some of the flexibility as other options.
Another popular type of insulation spray foam is highly effective and offers mold and insect-resistant benefits. Spray foam is professionally installed and is one of the more expensive insulation options, although it is air-tight and energy efficient.
Other types of insulation options include garage door kits and cellulose (typically used for filling holes, gaps, etc.). Insulating your garage will not only make it a more comfortable area but can be an important step in transforming your garage into a living space.
