What to put on garage ceiling?

6 posts in this topic

I am looking for a product to cover the inside roof of the garage, it will be used to cover the insulation that is installed between the 2x6 in the roof, drywall is to heavy and I would like something that I can paint. Could I use 1" pink foam board and get paint to stick to it?

First make sure you have venting from the soffit to the roof vents between the insulation and roof. If not, your roof sheathing and shingles won't last but a few years with insulation up there and heat inside.

Don't forget to check the local building codes to see if what you decide on is legal. It would really suck to have to remove it later to sell the house.

I put White ribbed steel on my garage ceiling, because I wanted something lightweight enough to easily do myself. Comes in lots of colors, and will have way better durability than pink foam board. But to answer your question, yes paint will stick to that foam. There's also a greyboard that comes in 1" thickness that's pretty close to white in color.

Your homeowners insurance will take a dump on you if you have a fire and they find unprotected foam.

I used 7/16 OSB plywood for the ceiling and walls in my garage, I guess if I had it to do all over again I would have used Steel on the ceilings and still used the wood on the walls. The white steel reflects the light so well and is maintenace free. The other advantage to steel is the ease of installation, you can pretty much do the whole thing in a day with a little help from a sheet rock lift! It's a little more spendy but in the end I think you would be happy. (my 2 cents)

    • I am interested in what this cough muffler looks like
    • Looks like a lot of rocks.  Could be some fish laying on the bottom.  I look for separation between the object and the shadow.  After I get more acquainted with my new unit i will try and post some shots
    • Its a whole new world down there with SI and DI.   After you learn what the picture is showing you,  you'll wonder what took so long to get it   I was a Lowrance guy for years and made the switch to H'bird this year with the new Solix with Mega chirp.  Very happy with it so far.  Amazing clarity and images.

    • Back to the original reply- which one and which size? http://www.homedepot.com/p/Basement-Watchdog-Emergency-Battery-Backup-Sump-Pump-System-BWE/100055241   Amperage (amps) 6.5   Or, if you want to be serious then install a few of these bad boys. I call it the Mother Of All Backups or MOAB for short.   https://www.sumppumpsdirect.com/SUMPRO-SUMPROGOLD-Sump-Pump/p2565.html  
    • Has anyone been on Clear yet this season? Thinking about heading that way in a few weeks to try for some walleye and yellows. 
    •   Well wasn't cheap but you got fixed and it would have been a real mess if she blew out on the lake.
    • Congrats looks like a beautiful and productive lake! Nice work.
