EcoPro Garage Insulation Kit
EcoPro Garage Insulation Kit
Here at Ecohome Insulation, we have created a solution that enables you to use your Garage, all year round – The EcoPro Garage Insulation Kit.
UK Garages are renowned for being exceptionally hot in summer and cold and damp in the winter – this does not have to be the case!
Our EcoPro Garage Insulation Kit will enable you to optimise this space. So, whether you wish to convert your Garage in to a Home Gym, Workshop or to simply have additional dry Storage Space this is the solution for you.
The Kit has been designed by insulation experts, specifically for Garages, using high performing insulation material. The material used acts as a vapour control barrier and is designed to prevent moisture building up, whilst retaining an ambient temperature all year round.
What’s Included within the EcoPro Garage Insulation Kit?
- Our High Performing EcoQuilt Expert, to Insulate the Roof, Walls and Door.
This Multifoil has a built in vapour control layer, multiple layers of wadding, foam and the outer layers are highly reflective.
- EcoTec Floor Foam, to Insulate the Floor.
- Thermaseal Double Sided Tape 50mm x 33m – which is used alongside the EcoTec Floor Foam – to insulate the floor.
This products prevents cold air entering from below the floor. This can be easily installed directly on to your Concrete floor.
- Thermaseal Foil Joining Tape – to seal all edges and joints
- Staple Gun Kit – Including a Heavy Duty Staple Gun and 5,000 x 14mm Staples
- Cutting Knife
- We also offer Free Next Working Day Delivery to UK Mainland, when ordered before 2pm

The Garage Insulation Kit makes the Garage usable all year round, whilst reducing expenditure on heating. Specifically, you will require your heating on for less time – to obtain your desired temperature.
In Summer the EcoPro material works in the opposite way – it reflects away the excess heat and maintains an ambient temperature.
The material used on the walls, roof and floor is manufactured using a product called EcoQuilt. This is perfect for garages, that tend to be damp in the winter, as it acts as a vapour control layer when taped and sealed. This material is also equivalent to over 100mm of fibre insulation, yet its just 6/7mm when compressed.
The Floor insulation, prevents any cold air rising in to the room from below. As we know concrete gets exceptionally cold so having a barrier in between will massively help.
How To Convert your Garage Into a Workshop
How To Convert Your Garage Into a Workshop
Clear Garage of All Materials
Clear Garage of all materials including any derbis and dirt.
Walls: Install Battens
Fix a minimum of 25mm battens to the wall. We recommend screwing these vertically and spacing the battens at minimum centres of 400mm
Walls: Staple Insulation
Staple the EcoQuilt Expert to the internal of the battens, creating an air cavity between the wall and insulation. We recommend stapling at intervals of 300mm of less and overlapping the insulation by 50mm.
Walls: Tape and Seal
Tape and seal the EcoQuilt Expert using the ThermaSeal Foil Tape (provided in the Insulation Kit) along the perimeter, overlaps and along any cuttings/holes made in the product. This will ensure the Insulation will act as a high performing vapour control layer, eliminating the risk of condensation.
Walls: Install Second Battens
Install secondary 25mm battens over the insulation. We recommend fixing these at minimum centres of 400mm and can be installed vertically or horizontally.
Walls: Install internal boarding
Fix your chosen internal boarding to the secondary battens. We have used Plywood however Plasterboard or cladding can also be used. You will have created a cavity either side of the insulation, so the foils can perform and reflect properly.
Repeat Steps on the roof
Staple the multifoil insulation directly to the underside of the roofs timber rafters or joists before taping and sealing using ThermaSeal Foil Tape. A secondary counter batten and internal boarding can then be applied, however the insulation can be left exposed if preferred.
Floor: Lay FloorFoam
Lay the EcoTec FloorFoam directly onto the wooden or concrete floor and adhere into place using either a non-solvent adhesive, Double SIded Tape or Staple Gun. We recommend butt joining the insulation and not overlapping, as this will ensure the floor is level.
Floor: Taping and Sealing
Tape and seal the EcoTec FloorFoam using ThermaSeal Foiil Tape. We recommend to tape along all butt joints, perimeter and along any pipework or cuttings to create a complete seal. This will ensure the product acts as a damp proof membrane, eliminating the risk of condensation forming.
Floor: Laying flooring
Finally you can now lay your internal garage flooring. As this garage is being converted into a workshop we have used rubber floor tiles, which are very easy to install.
Do I need to insulate the floor?
Performance wise it is recommended to insulate the floor using our EcoTec FloorFoam which is also available in this kit. If you’re using your garage for cars, or heavy machinery and it gets a lot of wear and tear you should use some plywood over the top to prevent damage to the insulation. There is also the option to not insulate the floors if you don’t feel like it’s needed.
Do you need to board over the floor and walls?
This is something that’s completely up to you if you’re wanting to insulate your garage so it can be used as an extra room, and you don’t want to see the silver insulation you can. Boarding over the insulation can help to protect it from any damage. For the floors, dense rubber matting is a great choice because it’s made for heavy machinery and can take a lot of weight. However, you do not need to board over the insulation.
Do you need to use battens, or can you install the insulation directly to the wall?
The insulation works by expanding into the open space behind the battens and trapping warm air inside. You will still gain benefit from applying it straight to the wall, but the performance won’t be as good as installing it with battens with a 25mm gap. You would expect to lose 20% performance from removing an air cavity.
Do you need to Tape and Seal the insulation?
Yes, we would always recommend taping and sealing the insulation this will stop any draughts from entering the garage and prevent warm air from escaping. When our products are taped, they will work as Vapour Control Layers, reducing condensation.
Is it suitable for all year-round use?
Insulating the roof and wall would be suitable for all year-round use. Having a heat source in the garage would allow for comfortable use in the winter.
Can I cut the insulation?
Our products can easily be cut with a cutting knife or a large pair of scissors. EcoQuilt Expert is a multi-layered insulation, however it has kimbles which keeps all layers together when cutting.
