    Insulation of Metal Sheds to Stop Condensation

    I want to use a metal shed as a small workshop.
    Is it possible to insulate the building, and what
    method would you recommend ? I was thinking of
    constructing studding with insulation blocks,
    faced with plywood.

    A contributor asked about insulation of metal sheds. I'm pleased to offer my experience in this matter.

    On receiving my Coldale metal shed I was, to be honest, rather dispappointed by how flimsy the whole thing appeared. However, my shed is now considerably stronger and very well insulated - and it has been done at moderate expense.

    I battened the inside with 50mm x 22 mm vertical lengths of wood (4 on either side and 5 at the rear), fixing them with four bolts each through the metal skin. To these I attached 10mm, 3-ply exterior plywood sheets. I've added horizontal boards (2 per side) to enable the fitting of shelves etc.

    I have no real problems with condensation and the whole affair feels warm (I work in it) and solid.

    The work that I've carried out might of course affect the guarantee, but that really isn't an issue as far I'm concerned. I'm really pleased with the result.

    You could try DIY sprayed foam insulation. You would spray this directly onto the walls and roof. Visit www.spray-insulation.co.uk

    Insulation of metal and steel buildings

    We now have a range of Steel Light Industrial Sheds and Workshops which can be insulated with 40mm, 60mm or even 80mm thickness of insulation to the walls and roof.

    Take a look on this page http://www.leisurebuildings.com/acat...buildings.html
