Further to my issues with damp in our wardrobes it has been recommended that we dismantle the wardrobes and the insulate the wall with Thermal Insulated Plasterboard. This is a job I am willing to take on as it is not overly expensive.

I have had a thermometer in the cupboard for a few weeks and the lowest I have seen it go is 14C.

My question is, what would be the recommended thickness of insulation board to get in there? Is there an easy way to calculate it?

Strangely even in this even cooler weather they appear to be quite dry. We believe it to be condensation as the cause as it is consistent across all of them.

The method I was advised is to remove wardrobes, clean the wall, PVA seal it and then cut and dot and dab the boards on. The plasterboards could actually become the backing of the wardrobes when i rebuild them.

Many thanks,
