In the world of properties, no matter where you look, each and every type of building is now fitted with insulation. For decades, people have been insulating their homes and commercial properties. Today, however, our living areas extend well beyond the traditional spaces we allocate in our homes. Over time, we have begun making greater use of alternative areas for the purposes of living and entertainment, such as the garage. For decades, people have cleverly made use of the garage for more than just parking their vehicles; and an increasing number of people are taking this part of their home to the next level and transforming it into a room that seriously impresses. To support such a transformation, many people are choosing to upgrade their garage by installing insulation. This eliminates the cold and unlivable feel that the garage usually radiates (due in part to concrete floors and sometimes bricked walls), and makes it more warm and inviting.
Often acting as an extra living area, a man cave, or a teen retreat; the garage has become a sanctuary for residents of the home to escape for recreational purposes. If you intend on using it as a space for your family to gather and unwind, we’ve created a special garage insulation to make life more comfortable. Just like any other building, the garage can be insulated in the ceiling and walls. What separates the garage, however, is its concrete floors and main door—both for which we offer insulation. When it comes to the ceiling, Foilboard Garage Ceiling Insulation provides a winning solution. It’s lightweight and insulates your garage through double action. It reflects heat away via its reflective foil surface, while also creating an insulating core in your ceiling.
When insulating your garage walls, you will find Foilboard to be very effective. It exceeds all BCA requirements and we guarantee it for the life of the garage, as long as it’s installed correctly. When it comes to insulating your garage floor, because it will more than likely be constructed from concrete, it is a wise idea to get insulation that is designed for it. You can even retrofit concrete floors by installing insulation over the top. Finally, to seal your garage to perfection, you’ll need garage door insulation. Our Foilboard garage door insulation panels are extremely effective at providing high-end insulation. They are sleek and slimline, making sure that your garage door is powered to protect your garage against fluctuating weather conditions. To top it off, installation of Foilboard Garage Door Insulation is extremely easy to carry out.
There are many benefits to insulating your garage. The first and most obvious is that it increases the thermal efficiency of the space, and your home. This means that the temperatures will remain more comfortable in your garage all year round. Because your garage is generally attached to your home, insulation will also offer added protection for your home, and contribute to a greater balanced climate indoors. Due to this, you won’t need to turn to heaters and air conditioners to regulate the temperature in your garage, and therefore you’ll save more money on your energy bills. Not only that, but you will reduce your carbon footprint on the planet because you won’t be making use of natural energy resources as much as you once were.
If you already have an existing home and garage, it is actually easier than you think to fit insulation. Depending on your specific setup, there is a solution that will maximise the effectiveness of the insulation and provide you with increased levels of thermal efficiency. If, instead, you are building a new home; now is the time to purchase the right insulation and install it in your garage—ideally before plaster and cladding go up.
