How to insulate a wall in the garage
To feel comfortable in the garage during the repair should take care of its heating. And, to save fuel at the same time it is best to insulate the ceiling and walls. Especially if the garage is detached construction. However, excessive warming is also undesirable. Normal temperature should be about 5 degrees, when there are no people. Thermal insulation is best done from the outside, but it is possible and from the inside.
You will need:
- hammer; - dowel nail; - Metal corners; - mineral wool; - Vapor barrier; - Wooden beam 100x50 mm; - Siding or facing bricks; - MDF, moisture resistant plasterboard or paneling.
Instruction how to insulate the walls in the garage
Prepare a heater. The most acceptable of all technical parameters is mineral wool. This "stone" fiber, which is not afraid of fire, and have an excellent thermal conductivity equal to 0.04, which corresponds to the thickness of one meter of brickwork. But it must be reliably protected against moisture by installing a vapor barrier on all sides. Also prepare the bars size 100x50 mm. The first number indicates the thickness of the insulation layer, if it is done outside the less, the effect will not be any. To attach the bars to the wall of the garage, use the metal gons.
Mark up on the wall of the garage future wooden crate. The distances between the centers of the bars do 600mm, a standard mineral wool roll width. Attach to the wall vapor barrier. Then take a punch and dowel-nails that fasten metal squares to it. Screws for wood bars attach to them.
Roll insulation roll and cut the strip equal to the height of the wall. Put them in the gaps between the bars, they should enter densely. Take a vapor barrier and attach it on top of a heater and a wooden log. Obsheyte siding garage or covered with facing brick. In the case where there is no way to insulate a garage outside, it can be done in a similar way from within. Only instead of siding, use a fiberboard, which should be pre-proolifit or battens, covering it with antiseptic and fire protection or moisture-resistant drywall. Use foam stands with caution. Since it is not only the combustible material, but also when it evolves toxic substances. Do not use the cheapest options, it is possible to apply a material made of a flame retardant. It is a relatively fire-resistant and withstands temperatures up to 85 degrees.
