03 Aug Best Shed Insulation
When you’re building a shed, insulation is a crucial feature to help protect your belongings from weather damage. You’ll generally have the option of choosing between foam and foil insulators. Foam insulators prevent the conduction and convection of heat, while foil insulators stop convection through their adhesive and reflective barrier. Wondering which insulation material is best for your shed? Read on to learn more about some of the best shed insulation materials on the market.
If you don’t have a lot of space in your shed, rockwool insulation is a great choice. This material is made from molten rock which is spun into fibres and compressed to form thick insulation. It absorbs and protects against noise, heat and cold, and will defend your shed from fire, water, mould and mildew.
Fibreglass isn’t as strong an insulator as rockwool, but it’s very easy to install and can be moulded into whatever shape you require. It’s also water-resistant and absorbs sound, so it’s a good choice if you’re worried about water damaging your shed’s contents.
Mineral Wool Insulation
In contrast to rockwool and fibreglass, mineral wool insulates similarly to a sponge and effectively blocks out noise, heat and water. As it has a higher expansion rate than other insulation materials, it works perfectly in a small space like a shed.
Cellular Plastic Insulation
If you produce a lot of sound in your shed – such as if you use it for music practice or recording – cellular plastic insulation might be just what you’re looking for. The interlocked polystyrene beads and recycled cardboard create the perfect thermal and sound barrier you need to play to your heart’s content.
Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) Foam Board Insulation
This rigid, versatile material can be used inside and outside and works well at blocking heat, cold and sound. EPS is a great choice for shed ceilings or walls.
Spray Foam Insulation
This insulation material comes in two parts: a resin base, comprised mainly of polyurethane, and a propellant which becomes foam when mixed with the resin. This mineral helps to block conduction, convection and radiation and also limits the transfer of sound, so is perfect if you’re needing effective noise reduction.
