A garage addition provides extra space for storage, parking vehicles, or used as a shop or secondary suite. In addition, a new garage will add value to your property. If you’re considering insulating and heating your garage, SPAAR Spray Systems in Calgary offers some helpful tips.
Insulating a garage suite
If you’re building a separate living space above your garage, or you already have a developed space above your garage, it’s important to hire insulation contractors in Calgary to ensure it’s insulated properly. In this case, it’s best to use spray foam insulation beneath the suite floor.
If the garage already has a finished ceiling and you’re looking to add more insulation, blow-in insulation is an excellent choice. SPAAR Inc. can blow it into the ceiling without having to demolish it.
Keeping your workshop or living space cool
An insulation upgrade and proper ventilation will keep your garage spaces cool in the hot summer months. This is essential if your garage has an upstairs living space.
Installing attic vents will significantly assist airflow if you don’t have them already. Heat rises, but the vents will ensure that air is cycled through the space to keep moisture build-up at a minimum. In addition, it will ventilate the space and cool your garage with passive convection. The cool air moves from the floor upwards and forces the hot air out.
Why spray foam insulation is the best choice for your garage
Spray foam is a superior, high-performing option for your garage and attic insulation in Calgary. SPAAR Spray Systems can install spray foam insulation in hard-to-reach places. They apply it as a liquid, and it expands and sticks to whatever it touches. Furthermore, spray foam doesn’t allow air passage or leakage.
Spray foam also creates an air-tight moisture barrier. Other insulation options require the installation of an additional moisture barrier and can become susceptible to mildew or mould. You never have to worry about this with high-quality spray foam insulation. Read more about the benefits of spray foam insulation.
Spray foam is an excellent choice for your garage upgrade and new garage building project. In addition, it’s also great for other residential applications too. Attic insulation upgrades, basement insulation, cantilever, and overhang insulation installation work well with spray foam.
