What Type of Workshop Insulation to use in new Timber Workshop

Postby Griff.slap » Fri Sep 07, 2018 10:01 am

Hi. I've recently disposed of my old asbestos garage (legally), and replaced it with a 2o'x8' timber workshop. Could anyone advise me on what type of insulation to use on the walls and ceiling, to stop my equipment getting damp, and to keep it reasonably warm to work in. I was thinking of using superquilt insulation, but it was very expensive, so I thought of using 8'x4'x50mm polystyrene sheets, cut to fit between the 3'x2' timbers, then overboarding with some plywood. Would this be OK ? I would appreciate any help on this subject, thanks.

Celotex & similar are about the best. Polystyrene is not as efficient. Shame you didnt post before, you may of got the suggestion of using SIP boards "Structural insulated boards" Real easey to use and already insulated. I wish i had built my garage with them.
