Internal or external insulation for cladding?

Recommended Posts



I was planning to insulate the outside of a 34 x 10 static with 75mm insulation boards and then clad it with Douglas fir waney edge. A friend suggested that as I’m going to redecorate then it’s best to insulate it by taking down the inside walls and floors and do it internally. Can it still be cladded without insulating it on the outside as there would be a gap behind the wood?

I personally think you would be better insulating outside where you will be able to cover the entire van (like a big blanket wrap) - you also won't take away precious internal space and can fit a good size insulation too. If you are cladding the van anyway then it makes sense to me to do outside.

Cheers, Martin
