stick wood to metal shed

Post by in2media » Thu Apr 18, 2019 7:02 pm

im wanting to insulate my metal shed as its my fish room. ive got a heap of ploystyrene sheets that i want to stick to the inside walls and roof, but every 2 sheets i want to put a length of wood so i can board over the insulation.

my question is whats the best adhesive to stick 2x1 to the metal sheeting walls

There are so many difficult to say what is the best or in other words :dunno:, perhaps a solvent based one. But you have a couple of issues. How will you press the wood against the metal until the adhesive sets, and then will it cope with the expansion and contraction of the metal and the weight of the boarding? Perhaps in addition to the adhesive I would be looking to screw the wood/battens from the outside in, perhaps using roofing screws and some from toolstation, so that they seal the hole on the metal.

If it helps a little.
