Product Overview

Choosing The Right Insulation

Faced Insulation


Face insulation uses kraft paper vapor barrier to control moisture transmission between 
walls and floors 

*Check your local building code for requirements
Unfaced Insulation


Unfaced insulation does not have a vapor barrier; used over existing insulation in the attic, or where moisture control is not needed

Rolls Insulation


Continuous rolls are easy to transport and can be cut to length; great for large areas

Batts Insulation


Come in pre-cut lengths for faster installation and each package contains more square feet than rolls; ideal for framed cavities

Blow-In Insulation

Blow-In Insulation

Installed using blowing machines, best for adding additional insulation in attic

Customer Questions & Answers

Does any one have issue/suggestion about the door's weight increased?

If i install the kits, is it have to be make the adjust on the garage door? I am wondering if this is worth to spend almost $200 plus i don't know how much it costs for the garage door adjustment. Thanks
Asked by: kevin
HECK YES!!! I just installed it. (16 panels) and MY GARAGE DOOR WEIGHS A TON NOW!! I need to spend even MORE MONEY to get my garage door springs re calibrated. To test this. I unlocked the latch and tried to lift the door by hand. ITS SO HEAVY NOW!!! and as another comment said, a door should be able to hang 1/2 way on its own and you should be able to lift it with your fingers. . Well, mine used to. Now IT wants to slam to the ground under all the added weight!!!! I'm not happy. THE WEIGHT WILL DESTROY your garage door motor over time ! It MUST be re adjusted by a professional.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I’ve waited for a couple of months before I wrote this review to determine how well the insulatio... I’ve waited for a couple of months before I wrote this review to determine how well the insulation works and how effective my installation methods have been. My garage faces west and we live in Central Texas where the sun is hot and bright. Typically, the garage which shares a wall with my kitchen, pantry, and front entry way, is significantly hotter than the rest of the house – and in the summer time it can be 25+ degrees hotter! It also causes the shared walls and rooms to be a little hotter. Which is not good for the food in our pantry! Plus we just wanted our garage to be cooler. First, the product itself. There are 8 sheets approximately 20” x 48”, paired up and rolled into 4 separate bundles in each box. Also, each box has a pair of blue gloves (HIGHLY recommended to be used), a bag of plastic clips, and some squares of double sided sticky tape. My garage door design didn’t allow for the use of the clips, so they were largely useless. And the couple dozen 1” squares of double sided tape were nowhere near enough to secure this to the door. I would recommend that you open up all the bundles and unroll the individual sheets….they were easier to cut and install when they had sorta fluffed up a little. Second, the prep work. I cleaned the entire surface of the inside of the garage door with Windex and a rag. I needed to have a clean surface to secure the tape and insulation to. I have a three car garage with a single door and a double door. I also measured the height of each of the four panels that make up each door and the overall length of each panel. I had to cut each sheet of insulation down to about 16”. For my double door, each panel required four sheets, so when the box says you need two boxes to do a double garage, they are correct! I ended up cutting about 12” off the end of that fourth sheet. I also kept all the scraps. I haven’t entirely determined what I’m going to do with them, but they are secured in my attic for now. The box also recommends that you wear the provided gloves, long sleeves, pants and eye protection. I would second that recommendation, because you are going to get fiberglass on you no matter how careful you are. I used to work in a plant that molded fiberglass duct board into vents for industrial AC units, so I can tell you for a fact that fiberglass gets into your skin very easily and can be very irritating when it does. Third, the installation. If you have a doors like mine – four separate sections that run length-wise and have a relatively smooth surface on the back – you are going to want to use double sided carpet tape to secure the insulation to the panels. Some other reviewers talked about using liquid nails (and my wife kept pushing me to do the same), but I chose not to. I think that the liquid nails would get soaked up by the fiber glass and the sheets would separate. I ran the double sided tape on both the top and bottom of each of the four panels of the doors (I started with my single door so that I could work out my system). Then took the first of my cut down sheets. Even after letting them expand for a few minutes, there was still one end of each panel that appeared to have a slatted cut rather than a straight 90 degree cut. I would overlap, just a fraction of an inch with the second sheet over this slatted end so that I didn’t create a gap in coverage. Once I had both sheets on a panel, I went back and secured the top and bottom with gorilla tape. I bought some super strong white gorilla tape so that it would sorta match the color of the door. I also put a strip of tape on either end of the sheets and panel to keep if from drooping at the ends. This may have been unnecessary, but I didn’t want to have to worry about the ends of the panels falling down. In the end, it took me about 4-5 hours total to do my three car garage single handedly. And truthfully, it took as long to do the double door as it did the single, as I worked out the details of my particular process. It was not a labor intensive job, however. The results of having the insulation, however, were immediately felt. The day after I did the installation the temperature in the garage during the hottest part of the day was only about 15 or so degrees warmer than the rest of the house. I took a small room thermometer and walked around and took readings from several spots in the garage. A week later, the temps were only 7 degrees warmer!!! So when my house is 73 degrees, my garage is only 80, rather than 100-105+!!! I would highly recommend this product. Take the time to do the installation right the first time and understand the characteristics of your door and the particularities of the actual installation. It is going to add some weight to the door itself, but it’s not so much that your door opener won’t work if you make some adjustments to the force / speed of the opener. We are very satisfied with the result and temperature in the garage, plus it cut some of the rattle that occurred when the door was going up and down!!!!

This product is pretty good but you need to really look at your garage door before you pull the trigger on this. In my case, my garage door does not have ridges to tuck the top and bottom of the panels into. So when I placed them on the panel, they hang out even though I cut it to size. I stapled pieces of thick string along the top and bottom to hold the panel in place. See attached image. All in all I like this product and it does seem to help keep the temps down in my garage so far.

Just follow instructions on the box. Took about an hour to install. I wore a long sleeve shirt and gloves provided to prevent irritation from fiberglass. A cardboard box for a cutting surface, utility knife and straight edge are helpful. Vinyl backed fiberglass comes in 21" H precut panels which was perfect for my door. Kit makes the garage quieter from road noise and insulates well. I'm very happy with the results. There's a short tutorial video on YouTube which is helpful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from exactly as advertised The insulation came neatly packaged with all the parts needed. Once installed, I could instantly tell the difference in the noise level. It actually reduced outside noise! The insulation was installed on a day where the temperature was 100 degrees outside. My garage door faces the west and gets hammered by the late day sun. After installation, the temperature inside the garage was at least 15 degrees cooler (or more) than outside!! By 6 pm, the garage was very comfortable and my vehicles were cooler than before the insulation was installed! I am VERY pleased with this product and recommend to all who wish to reduce heat/cold and noise!!

First of all, having the insulation held on two points on each panel and assuming that tucking them in will be enough to hold them on is a terrible idea. Edges really should be at least taped on but they do not provide anything to hold the edges in with. Second as several others have said do not assume that they fit your door, if they do not these are NOT worth the cost.

Had to cut to fit on most panels. Recommend using 3M Super 77 glue spray on both the adhesive pad and then the holding peg. Also purchase some foil tape to secure insulation sides to garage door. Noticed the sound difference once installed.

There are 8 pre-cut sections of insulation which fit my door perfectly without any trimming at all. I have a single car garage with the typical 4 section metal door, with a metal piece running down the center on the inside, creating 8 sections. I used white duct tape around the edges to further seal it, but the insulation can be installed with just the plastic fasteners included in the kit. My garage with a west facing door is now much much cooler than it was, probably by 30 degrees. The door is also quieter going up and down, a nice bonus. No adjustment to the door spring or electric opener was required. A very satisfying purchase from Home Depot. If you're looking at insulating your garage door, this product really works and is easy to install.
