High-quality insulation of a timber shed
If you’re going to use your timber shed all year round and to spend some time in it, the insulation is necessary. It provides more constant temperature to your shed than it may otherwise be. Besides, by adding insulation your timber garden shed can be more versatile. It will stay warm in winter and cool in summer with protect foil insulation, Colorbond roofing and solid floors.
Theoretically you can insulate any wood shed but it makes more sense to buy one that is constructed in a particular way to start with.
A new timber shed should feature the following things:
The first one is its thick cladding. It provides you with thick walls which makes it harder for heat to pass inside.
The second thing is looking for tongue-and-groove cladding rather than overlap cladding which lets the heat to escape between them. The tounge-and-groove design looks like each separate board is tightly fitted to the next one.
An excellent example of a timber shed with a high-quality insulation in Melbourne is a product bought from Shed Bonanza.
A timber shed should be perfect not only for wall but also for its floor and ceiling construction. The windows and doors should also be high-quality to provide little heat to be lost.
When your timber shed is constructed all the gaps between the studs should be filled. When you know how deep they are and how far apart from each other they are you can decide which type of insulation would be best for your shed - blanket insulation, foam boards or polystyrene sheets. After choosing the most appropriate type, thickness and size of insulation, the wood panels can be used to cover the insulation and provide your timber shed interior with the finished surface.
When insulating the ceiling it’s better to leave a gap between the insulation and ceiling itself to prevent moisture collecting.
