Sheds can turn into an oven in the summer or a freezer in winter. Extreme temperatures can damage everything stored in your shed, whether they are papers, garden tools or other appliances. If you want to use your shed for the rest of the year, you need to maintain temperature.
More and more homeowners aim at reusing their sheds in novel ways. Whether you want to convert a storage area into a bold new office space or want to give your valuable things such as bikes or mowers the protection they deserve, you need effective shed insulation. Sheds are being converted into home studios, music rooms, playrooms, and annexes.

Types of Insulation Material
Fiberglass insulation is a great choice for shed walls. Choose fiberglass in the form of a roll with a vapor barrier to control moisture. Use a sharp utility knife to cut the pieces into the right size and fix them.
Cellulose is an eco-friendly option and made up of recycled newspapers. The material is green, non-toxic, efficient and provides great thermal protection.
Spray foam insulation is one of the easiest ways to install insulation. It can cover all the nooks and corners with complete ease resulting in an effective insulation.
Our Insulation Products
Green Apple Spray Foam LLC is proud to source products from only the most reputable brands in the industry, including manufacturers like Owens Corning for fiberglass, Knauf for cellulose, and Certainteed for Fiberglass and Cellulose.
Spray Foam Insulation
Spray foam insulation is of two types, open cell and closed cell. Open-cell spray foam is rated at about R-3.6 per inch for low-density, while closed-cell spray foam provides better insulation of around R-6.0 to R-6.5 per inch.
It can be found in various forms like blankets, batts, and loose-fill. It offers lower R values of around R-2.75 to R-5.25 per inch. It is installed in joists, and rafters as well as between studs, in walls, ceilings, and floors.
Cellulose insulation is inexpensive and environmentally friendly. Loose-fill cellulose offers an R-value of R-3.6 to R-3.8 per inch making it a favorite option for homeowners.
Mineral wool offers a higher R-value and contains about 70% of recycled material. The two main ingredients of mineral wool are basalt and industrial slag. It is a green product and has three times more density than fiberglass. It is also fire resistant and has an R-value of 3.0 to 3.3 per inch
Benefits of Shed Insulation
Protect the Things Stored in Your Shed
Extreme temperatures can potentially damage the items stored in your shed, costing you the expense of having to replace them. Our insulation solutions can protect your belongings stored in the shed and save you money.
Increase the Lifespan of Your Shed
Our spray foam insulation services will increase the lifespan of your shed itself, helping it to avoid mold, rod, and general deterioration. Furthermore, proper insulation may increase the functionality of your shed, letting you turn it into another living space for much less money.
Adds Value to the Property
Shed insulation can increase the value of your property. When you make it an extension of your home by insulating it and making it comfortable, you have more space to occupy and utilize. As a result, your home value multiplies.
Reduces External Noise
Controlling noise is especially critical if you live on a busy street or near a major intersection. Many people like to spend a lot of time in their shed painting, working on their car, or playing music. Insulation can reduce the noise and people can have a more comfortable time.
Makes Provision for Heating and Cooling
Many people want to heat or cool their sheds to use them comfortably. In winters, a heater can make your shed warm whereas in summers an air conditioner can keep it cool. However, your HVAC system can work efficiently only if the shed is properly insulated. A layer of insulation can prevent heat loss and reduce your energy bills.
Insulating your shed allows you to maintain indoor thermal comfort which is especially important in a construction distanced from the main property and exposed on all sides.

Factors to Consider Before Insulating Your Shed or Exterior Structures
Some of the factors to consider before you choose the type of insulation or the thickness of insulation are the following:
Signs Your Garage Needs Insulation
Your weather-sensitive equipment such as classic vehicles, batteries, electric blowers, and mowers are affected by weathering damages.
The shed is cold and drafty.
It is extremely noisy.
The stored objects like paints, canned food, and leather furniture are damaged due to cold.
Signs of mildew and/or rot in the shed.
Yes, we can insulate chicken coups, barns, or any other exterior structure in your home.
Rolls of spun fiberglass are the most common type of insulation for sheds. It’s extremely effective and regulates temperature, keeping hot air in and cold air out. Spray foam insulation is another great option.
If you insulate even an unheated detached shed, you can make it more comfortable and prolong the life of your precious belongings. However, comfort is considerably increased if it is heated as well as insulated.
Wall insulation enhances the thermal performance and acoustics of your shed, making it both warm and quiet. Insulating the walls of a shed prevents powerful winds, warm air and cold air from entering and exiting the structure. Besides walls, you can also insulate the shed floor to stop the heat transfer. Underfloor insulation also helps to improve energy efficiency.
A concrete garage can be insulated in two ways. One way is to use fiberglass insulation. The other way is to use a coated foam sheet e.g. the ones manufactured by Kingspan or Celotex.
Unless you intend to heat or cool your shed, it does not require moisture or vapor barrier. Plastic should be 6 mil or greater, but 10 mil to 20 mil is preferable. If your shed is heated, the barrier is installed on the interior of the wooden frame. If your shed is cooled, the moisture barrier is installed on the exterior of the structure.
