Steel shed insulation
[Return to Topics]

I have a steel shed made from corrugated steel. I want to insulate it. The metal is galvanized steel. Any suggestions are appreciated.

joe i don't know if you have a tin-can frame but if so, make sure and don't leave any metal studs uninsulated. darn cold migrates along those things thru the insulation and there will be cold (in our case frost) strips on the inside if they're showing.

we have a 12x12 steel shed I use as a craft workshop. We do wood crafts and we used foam board ,it's about 2 in. thick and we used wire tacked to the wood studs. even in winter i work in there with just a little ceramic heater.hubby is going to sheetrock it this spring.

Accordian board...

It is thin 'blue board' (though some is pink) that is folded accordion style...Unfold and cut to fit...To keep it in place you can glue it, nail it, staple it, rivit it, etc....Not the greatest R-value, but better than nothing and easy to work with...

Just a thought...

Now off to the inlaws for Round 2...
