My garage has a roof, four walls and a door.

It currently has beams running along the ceiling height which looks like it was used for storage.

Would adding a ceiling keep my garage at a Warmer temperature for longer?

If it does what is a good and low cost material to use?

  • Is there any source of heat within the garage itself? – bib Jan 22 '16 at 15:05

Yes, but you probably need to at least seal around the doors and perhaps insulate plain metal doors.

In my part of the world, mineral wool in rolls.

You can suspend this in netting (the upper floor of an office building I use has this, with a false ceiling below, but the insulation is suspended in netting). Stapling some netting to your beams seems to me easier than attaching drywall/plasterboard and laying insulation above that.
