What is R-Value?
R-Value is a measure of thermal resistance used in the building and construction industry. Specifically, R-value is thermal resistance to heat flow. Many manufacturers use R-values to show the energy efficiency of their product. This number is calculated based on the thickness of the insulation and its chemical properties. Got all that?
The higher the R-value number, the better the insulated your garage will be. Here is where it gets tricky, an R-16 value is not twice as good as an R-8 Value. The chart below does a great job at detailing this out.
