hi insulation is not nessesarily your problem it may be ventilation. People often think if its wet seal it. We had a really bad winter a deep freeze. and thaw means wet. Insulation such as foam boards keep in moisture as well as heat. Leave space between stored items and ensure air movement this may solve your problem I you do opt for insulation foam boards with reflective surface may be best option to retain space. Still ventilation is vital.
