Signs You Need More Garage Insulation
You might scoff at the idea of garage insulation. After all, a garage is a strange in-between area, and it’s rarely going to be as warm as the inside of your home. But should it be as cold as outside? Ideally, no.
Look for these signs when considering garage insulation:
- Rooms adjacent to your garage are either cold, hot or have moisture problems.
- Even with the garage door closed for a lengthy period of time, being in your garage feels like you’re outside.
- Drafts blow inside your garage from outside or inside your house from your garage.
- Mold or mildew are problems in your garage or adjacent rooms.
- When it snows, the area around your garage melts clear from leaking heat.
Any of these alone can indicate a problem; if you have multiple at hand, you’re looking at some seriously underperforming garage insulation. After all, insulating your garage should be doing two things: protecting your garage from the outdoors and protecting the rest of your home from your garage. If it’s doing neither, you have a serious issue at hand.

Types of Insulation
If you decide you need or want to add insulation to your garage, you’ll need to consider your options carefully. Understanding the different types of insulation will allow you to make an informed decision with the help of our team of experts. Depending on how you’re insulating your garage and what sort of walls and ceiling it has, insulation may involve:
- Spray foam insulation. Insulation can be sprayed wet onto the surfaces of your garage and then dries into thick foam insulation, expanding into nooks and crannies along the way. It is very efficient, insulating against heat, air, moisture and sound.
- Batts. Standard fiberglass or mineral wool panels can be installed into walls between studs or layered tight for even higher insulation values.
- Blown-in loose-fill. Cellulose insulation can be added to existing insulation without completely redoing all of the walls. Ideal if your garage has normal interior-style walls that need to be topped off with insulation.
While your garage is unlikely to ever be kept as warm as the rest of your home, you can still set goals for the R-values you desire on different surfaces or leave it to our team to determine exactly how much insulation you need. Typically you want the greatest R-value on walls and ceilings.
