I'm insulating an internal wall. The wall is flat. I was going to
use no more nails to stick the board to the wall. Will that be
sufficient? Or should I erect a timber frame and nail it to that?
By the way, I have had a lot of trouble trying to find insulation
board. Could someone recommend a good brand, depth and supplier.
You need to give a better description of the situation to get good
answers. Is this related to the cold loft question? What R value are
you shooting for?
location? exsiting condition? desired outcome? budget constraints?
foam board isn't cheap & usually needs to be covered with gyp for fire
~$30 to $50 per 4x8 sheet
I got mine from Encon they have branches around the country and can
Seems you are looking to do "direct bonding" of insulation laminated
plasterboard. Here is something from one of the maufactureres sites
They recomend using their own bonding but you could probably use a
solvent based nomore nails but remember it takes a day or 2 to go off
and would require the plasterboards being held in place untill its
something about instalation including how you are supposed to use
aditional nails to hold insulated laminates.
