Converting a garage is an increasingly popular way to enhance an existing property – and good quality garage insulation is a crucial consideration for any conversion.
Transforming a car port or storage room into a more accessible and useful area can be a very rewarding project. Not only does it provide extra living or working space, but it can raise a property’s value.
Possible conversions include:
- Home office – turning the garage into a useful space where people can work from home.
- Spare bedroom – increasing the number of sleeping spaces in the property and potentially boosting its value.
- Leisure area – creating a children’s playroom, music room or a home gym if properly renovated.
Whether setting up a practice space for aspiring drummers, or crafting the perfect home studio, insulating a garage can ensure a more comfortable indoor environment, reducing heat loss through external walls, and greatly boosting energy efficiency by eliminating the need for excess heating or cooling costs.
In addition, when a garage wall is in direct contact with the main property, applying effective insulation to improve thermal regulation and energy efficiency is often especially crucial – as problems caused by excess heat loss will impact upon the wider living space.
This is something to seriously consider, whether you are converting the garage space or not.
