under deck insulation. in many existing construction as well as in under construction buildings, the most efficient and economical option to increase the thermal resistance and stopping unwanted temperature transmission of heat gain or loss is through the under deck insulation that has been done underside of the rood or ceiling surface.
before i put the plywood on the walls i insulated the garage walls with unfaced r19 fiberglass insulation. i prefer using unfaced insulation and then installing a layer of plastic as the vapor barrier. the key to a good fiberglass insulation installation is making sure the insulation has plenty of loft and its not compressed into the stud bay. as you can see in the photo the insulation is nice and fluffy.
lite-deck is a stay-in-place concrete forming system designed as an alternative construction solution to traditional ceiling and decking practices. the system uses the structural principles of reinforced concrete joists combined with the insulation properties of foam insulation.
garage insulation basics. in reality, insulation merely slows the transfer of heat through the insulated barrier wall, ceiling, floor, etc. . it's also important to realize the value of air-sealing in conjunction with insulation. garages typically aren't built to be airtight and have lots of air gaps to the outdoors.

controlling moisture in a garage is done by using exterior-grade plywood sheets laid over the foam insulating panels, and also by laying down a sheet of polyethylene plastic as a vapor barrier to block moisture. when a slab is being insulated in new construction, the vapor barrier is usually laid down first, before the slab is poured.
typically, this involves drilling small holes in the garage floor, blowing fiberglass or cellulose into all the cavities, and patching the holes. improving knee wall insulation: most attic knee walls aren't insulated very well. they usually have batt insulation, which is hard to install properly and often slips or falls off over time.

not leaving air space. if you are insulating the garage ceiling not only by the truss level but also up by the roof line, then you must leave at least 1 1/2 to two inches of air between the fiberglass and the underside. make sure you have enough ventilation on your roof as well. there should be a continuous ridge and soffit ventilation.
