Search traffic for “cheap storage sheds for sale” has been on the rise in New Zealand, revealing the increased interest for Kiwis to outfit their gardens out with this must-have all-purpose feature. However, along with the desire for low-cost sheds comes the desire for the best possible quality, as well as the best use and versatility from your Garden Shed. Insulating your shed can help satisfy that desire.

Benefits Of Insulating Your Pinehaven Garden Shed or Small Building

Without insulation, the usage of your shed is restricted to a storage unit, but insulation offers a whole new world of possibilities. Transform your pinehaven small building into a music room, entertainment room, dining space, guest house, photography or art studio, or even a remote office space. If you’ll be spending a lot of time in your shed, you’ll want it to be as comfortable inside as possible despite fluctuating temperatures.

If you’re thinking of installing a heating or cooling system, insulation can allow for significant energy savings.

Measuring Insulation Efficacy

The R-value is essentially a measurement of an insulating material’s capacity to resist heat flow. R values vary from 1.5 to 7, and the higher the number, the more efficient the insulation sheet is in increasing thermal efficiency.

Types Of Insulation For Garden Sheds

Spray foam insulation is a highly versatile form of insulation that may be used to help seal and insulate a shed. Although it is more costly, it is very versatile, easy to use and achieves what most other insulations do not: it insulates every crack and crevice in your shed. Closed-cell spray foam has a high R-value ranging from R-6.5-7 per inch.

Roll or blanket insulation consists of large unwound rolls of insulation and installed on your shed’s siding or roof. This includes fiberglass, flastic fibres, natural fibres or blanket batts. Roll insulation has very few gaps. It can be stacked for a higher R-value and acts as a thermal bridge between the joists, allowing for an effectively insulated shed. This is a straightforward DIY method with varying R-values depending on the material used.

Loose-fill or blown-in insulation is made up of smaller molecules of cellulose, fibreglass, or mineral wool (stone wool). Loose-fill insulation is best left to the experts who understand how much insulation and how to achieve the required R-value depending on the settling density of loose-fill insulation.

Whatever your intended use for your garden shed, insulation will be the best way to maximise its range of usage and durability.
