A Question About Pegboard !


I drove down to my oldest son's yesterday and helped him hang the drywall on the lid and two walls in his shop/store room.  While I was there we were talking about Peg Board on the other two walls and this question came up.

"He wanted to know if it would be ok to put the Peg Board right over the insulation and not put drywall behind it?" My answer was YES but I was wondering if any of Y'all could see any problems with doing it that way??????

His plans are to insulate then have one run of drywall on the bottom of both walls which would be 4' tall and then sit a run of Peg Board on top of that drywall that would extend another 4' up the wall, then he would only need a 12" piece across the top of the Peg Board to finish it all off since the ceilings are 9' hight !

you mite want to put some tape on the seams of the insulation to seal out the air a little better but i think its a cool idea and should work dang good. that peg board is handy to have.

I thought about hanging visquene behind it but the hardware would just poke holes in it - - - ?????????

Up here in the cold country, we use a plastic vapour barrier between the insulation and the drywall.......Having pegboard over the plastic would be good, but you would poke holes in the vapour barrier when putting the pegs in the pegboard.........Also, the drywall is thicker than the pegboard......I would space it out a bit from the insulation.

Hmmm, so put the plastic on and then some fir strips and then the peg board, eh??

Two things to think about here.. the first you have already mentioned about creating a vapor barrier.
 the second would be if you  hang the peg board over  sheet rock. you will put some firing strips between the peg board and sheetrock, obviously if he wants to use the peg board to hang stuff on

 personally if I was doing it in my shop.. I would hang sheetrock all the way up to the ceiling. fir out the wall and hang the peg board,  much easier to heat and over time that insulation will start deteriorating and he will have fiberglass dust everywhere

 EDIT            DUHHHHH   might help if I read all the replys before spoutin off adviceredface.gif
