Installing Insulation in a Garage Ceiling
Insulating a garage requires many considerations. Depending on the layout of your living space, you will need to decide if you should insulate your garage walls or your ceiling.
People with finished rooms over their garages often find that the room is much harder to cool in the summer and heat in the winter. This is because garages are typically given less attention in the home building process. Garages are utility and storage spaces and are often not part of the thermal boundary of the home. An insulating layer between the garage and finished room can not only help maintain the temperature of the room but reduce some of the noise as well.
Many people also use their garage for more than just storage. Some use it as a do-all workspace. This, alongside maintaining heat in the room above, is what makes garage insulation important.
Because insulating a garage requires so much attention to detail, it is smart to seek the aid of a professional. Valley Insulation LLC has been insulating houses for 40 years, so we’re a company you can trust when dealing with the ins and outs of insulating your garage ceiling.

The Insulation For the Job
Most garage ceilings are already drywalled, so typically the only insulation option is the drill-and-blow method using cellulose.
A blow-in cellulose insulation will provide optimal sound dampening and R-value. The Nu-wool Wallseal System Valley Insulation LLC offers is also environmentally friendly, made of recycled paper. It is flame retardant, resistant to mold, and resistant to pests. Flame retardation is especially important when insulating a garage because many flammable gases and fluids are often stored in the garage. Gasoline, some cleaners, and cans of compressed sprays are all highly flammable. In the case of some kind of accident, a layer of retardant insulation will help slow the spread of fire throughout the house. The cellulose option will also provide better noise dampening for anyone in the room above the garage.
