Why should I Insulate my shed and what is the best method to use?

Insulating your shed is a necessity, especially for those who use their sheds to store important things such as electronics and specialist tools. Even if you have a shed that houses invaluable things, it is still advisable to insulate it and ensure it isn’t damp.

Why do I need to Insulate my Shed?

If storing electronics and tools it is important, they are not subject to extreme high or low temperatures, as this could significantly damage them. The internal temperature of a shed should also be kept constant. It is also vital that sheds are kept damp free too.

What is the best product to use to Insulate my Shed?

Now you know you need to Insulate your Shed, but which products and method should you use? Insulation products such as PIR, Rockwool etc. Can be used – but they do bring significant issues, as you will see below.

  • Rockwool – is a good insulator, but is irritable on the eyes and skin, so protective equipment is required for the installation e.g., face masks & gloves. It is also messy to work with and after installation.
  • PIR – is another good insulator, but it is quite a thick material, so difficult to cut down. So, if space and time is critical (and in most cases where storage is concerned, space is definitely critical) it is not the easiest or most suitable option.
