Insulating Your Above-Garage Room

Tips And Tricks: Insulating Your Above-Garage Room

If you have an above-garage bonus room, you might be using it solely for storage. It might seem a little counterintuitive to have that room stuffed with boxes when you need an office, art room, or spare bedroom in your home. If it’s too cold or too hot in your above-garage room to really make use of the space, you should consider insulation. In this blog, Valley Insulation explains why insulation is very beneficial.

Why Insulate?

If the temperature of your above-garage room fluctuates drastically with the seasons, or if you have noticed molded areas, then you should consider new insulation. You should first check to see if that area of your home even has insulation. This room is very similar to attic space in terms of insulation needs, and some contractors intentionally leave these areas uninsulated.

Insulating your above garage room is a great way to turn “unfinished square footage” in your home into usable living space. This not only improves the day-to-day usability of your home, it also improves the value of your home when you decide to list it on the market. You can add hundreds of square feet of finished living space to your home, simply by insulating your above garage room.

What Type of Insulation Should I Use?

If you are going to insulate your above-garage room, you should consider utilizing cellulose insulation. This type of insulation creates a protective layer that is perfect for keeping out weather and is super effective for hard to reach spaces. Fiberglass insulation is another option.
