I have a garage attached to my house. The long exposed wall is single brick, then I have the garage door, then the other long wall is breeze block/ party wall with next door. The breeze block wall is insulated from the other side as they have converted their garage.
So I’m looking to insulate the single brick wall and back of garage door because the place is like a freezer in winter.
Done a lot of research and got confused but basic options are:
Insulated plaster board straight on wall, or fixed to batons ( which reduce overal width of course) . I’m keen to avoid dot and dab because it’s beyond me but there is a product called PinkGrip Dry Fix to stick it.
Or I could baton the wall, fill the gaps with foil backed insulation board and plasterboard over the top. One question I can’t find an answer to, is if I need a gap between back of the insulation and plaster board? The insulation has a built in vapor barrier.
Other thing is, I’d need to hang things off the wall, so either drill into batons, or drill through insulation and into the brick.
The purpose is just to make it warmer for training and bike wrenching, not for habitation.
Over to the experts…
