Choosing the Best Insulating Material for Your Garage
High temperature is no stranger to the residents of El Dorado Hills. Sunshine and warmth are nice but when it comes to garages, it can be uncomfortable. If you’re not ready to spend money on new garage doors, then a DIY insulation kit might just be the solution.
Insulating kits can found in hardware stores and offer an affordable way to keep your garage cool and pleasant to spend time in. Whether you choose to replace your doors or purchase a kit, garage insulation typically comes in two different styles: polystyrene and polyurethane.
Polystyrene is the same kind of material used in those flimsy disposable coffee cups. While it’s the cheaper option, its insulating capabilities aren’t the best. Polyurethane is a thick polymer that provides superb insulating qualities, but it’s slightly more expensive.
Some doors and kits also come with a reflective aluminum foil that further increases insulation.
