Insulating your shed or garage can make a great DIY project and can be completed during construction phase or retrofitted. Many people use their shed as a multipurpose space for general storage of items and a workshop, creative space, man cave or teenage retreat. Insulating your shed means you can stay comfortable and protect your valuable stored items such as boats and cars or chemicals like paints and fuel from radiant heat exposure or water damage. Shed insulation can weatherproof your shed to protect it against heavy rain, strong winds or hail, or extreme sun heat and prevent wind swept dust and dirt from entering the shed. You can insulate your shed’s walls, doors, ceilings or floors.
