I have moved to my new house for a year. The garage is super hot in the summer. I want to insulate the garage ceiling before summer coming. I have no idea about what product I should use, how to do it and what tools do I need. Do I need to insulate the garage door as well? It will be great if I can get some advice.
Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community. Thank you so much for joining us and sharing your question about insulating your garage ceiling.
It's great that you've decided to insulate your garage ceiling. Here are a few things to consider before buying your insulation.
What "R" value to install. The "R" value is how resistant the insulation is to heat transfer. A higher R-value means a higher insulating rating. Some states recommend certain "R" values to maximize the effectiveness of the insulation. Speak to your local store specialist for the recommended rating in your state.
Every state has its own rules regarding the installation of ceiling insulation. Some need permits, others require that you be a licensed installer. I recommend checking with the local council in your area to find out what the regulations are. Please keep us updated.
If you need more advice or information, please let us know.
