I have a 2 car garage with a metal roll up door and a very weak 1/3 hp motor and the addition of the insulation doesn't seem to have affected the performance of the opener other than it maybe takes a couple seconds longer to open the door.

I waited 14 years to finally get insulation put on my doors. I looked at the Styrofoam panels you can get, and batting, etc. Styrofoam kind of was inadequate and only about an R value of something like 3. I hadn't looked in a few years and this Owens Corning product is exactly what I wanted long ago. The Styrofoam could probably be lighter, but this is only about 15lbs and I didn't really need to upgrade my garage extension springs at all (even though I did, to 110 lbs, now my garage springs up when I disengage the opener). So, I don't think you have to worry too much about the added weight, unless, when you currently disengage your opener your door closes. Where, in that case, I'd probably to to an extra 10-20lb spring. I went from a 90lb to 110lb spring which was a little overkill on a typical post-1995 home, thin metal door. Read Less

The benefit of this brand of insulation vs. others is the increased R value. This has an R-9 insulation value, so has the ability to hold in or block more heat. The bad part is its heavier than other, similar products. But in general it's not THAT heavy.

The benefit of this brand of insulation vs. others is the increased R value. This has an R-9 insulation value, so has the ability to hold in or block more heat. The bad part is its heavier than other, similar products. But in general it's not THAT heavy.
A garage door spring is meant to be a perfect counterbalance to the weight of your door. You should be able to pick the door up with a single finger and stop it an any point along the track and let it hang there. Many garage doors aren't adjusted properly to begin with and already need the spring tightened.
You can find garage door tune-up services for about $75-$150 (I've seen coupons for it as low as $20). This should include spring tensioning, but also track adjustment and roller grease. It's possible you may need to get your springs replaced though, so don't be surprised if they tell you to do this. Depending on the age of your springs, they may already be worn out. Add an extra $100-$150 if this is the case.

Stew,
When installing the insulation in each section rectangle, I only had three sides (top, bottom, and either left or right) with recesses/cavities to tuck in the insulation. Knowing most doors are like this, it would be nice if Owens Corning made some sort of vertical retaining clip for that fourth side. After it was done, I noticed that the side that did not have a recess started to show pink, and droop. Not acceptable. So, I came up with my own solution. I hope it will help you, and it was cheap, max of $10. I went back to Home Depot and bought L shaped flashing in 10' lengths. I found it with the roofing stuff, as its actual manufactured use is as a drip roof edge flashing. Using tin snips, I cut them into 20" segments, and tucked them into the top and bottom recesses. Thus, this created an additional vertical cavity to tuck in the insulation. I think that the tension of the insulation would most likely hold it in place, however, I secured it with some 1/2" self tapping sheet metal screws. Not necessary, but I liked it better. I also picked up a $0.97 can of white spray paint to match (sort of) the interior of the door.

Answer: 
Hi
I had sufficient fasteners to complete the job. I bought 9 boxes to complete 3 installs on 3 doors.
I did find you need to measure carefully where the insulation needs to go and stick the fasteners so that it supports the insulation, which in my case it did perfectly.
I would assume that HomeDepot could source some extra fasteners if not contact the manufacturer.

Answer: 
This will help, but you will still need some kind of heat source. What the insulation does is to help contain any heat that you add to a space. Insulation doesn't, by itself, act as a heater. But if you had a couple of space heaters in your garage, the insulation would certainly help to reduce the amount of heat that would otherwise escape through your garage door.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 97 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works pretty good This was pretty simple to install. I have a two car garage so I bought two kits. It was not enough for all panels though, the bottom row of the garage door was not able to be done. It does make a temperature difference. July 15, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Doesn't stay on It kept the garage cool but it kept coming off. I installed it correctly and even used a spray on adhesive to make sure it really stuck well. After weeks of opening it started coming off. Plastic holders would come off as well. Then it would start blocking the sensors so the garage wouldn't close. I've had it for a couple of months and tore it all off. Big waste of money. Should have had paid the money to have a insulated garage door installed. Wouldn't recommend if you open and close your door frequently. May 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product so far, easy installation. Just finished installing this product. You will need two kits in order to do a 2-car garage. The installation was easy, and follow the instructions on the YouTube video. Make sure to measure all garage panels- mine varied from 47", 48", and 50" in width. I did not use a knife for cuts, I used scissors- super easy, clean lines, no slop. I can already tell a difference in the garage temperature and noise. Good luck! November 7, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by The garage is cooler now, but The panels were easy to install but I did notice some fitment issues. On my garage door, most insulation panels tucked into 3 of 4 sides to make a very snug fitment. The last side that wasn't tucked in started to hang down when the door was up and then it would leave big gaps once the door was closed. I placed some clear tape on the 4th side and no more issues. The plastic tabs are somewhat weak and won't stay latched for long. I've had to reattach about 4 tabs within the first few days. On the plus side, my garage door is super quiet when going up or down! June 16, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Necessary if you live in a hot a sunny climate. The product was wasy to install and seems already to be reducing the temperature in the garage. A surprise benefit was the significant noise reduction while raising and lowering the door. Because we are in Florida, we have a lot of extra bracing on our garage door which meant we had to cut half the sections in half. We have a two car garage (single door) so we needed two kits with 16 pieces of insulation. 8 of the sections we placed as is. 8 of the panels had to be cut in half to fit the sections which were divided due to hurricane bracing. I wouldn't have wanted to cut all the pieces to size and I like having the vinyl on the facing side. Obviously, I thought the product was worth the price charged because I bought it but the manufacturer is making a killing on this product The cat loves sleeping on my car so I'm sure she will be pleased we have put up the insulation! April 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Fantastic product and easy to install. Added this along with a new belt drive opener and the noise is virtually gone. Garage seems much cooler in the afternoons. Great product, a little pricey though. April 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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!! July 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Keeps it cool… Measure! Have a table to work on. Have some long 48" yard sticks! Watch the youtube videos. Doing all that will help you ace this job. It's not hard and the results will be worth it. DO make sure you use a NEW blade when trimming the insulation. It cuts easily, but the vinyl backing will be jagged, unless you got a fresh new blade. I also used a spray adhesive Loctite13.5 fl. oz. Professional Performance Spray Adhesive that was applied right before I put up each panel on to the garage. I then used aluminum tape to seal the edges down. I have a few panel sides left to go, but the image will show you how it looks. Don't forget to increase the power on the garage lift. Overall the package doesn't add a whole lot. I did immediately notice how much quieter the door now opens and closes. This summer hopefully the garage won't be 110 degrees with the East sun facing metal door! NOTE: The tape nor the adhesive spray are not REQUIRED to do this job. I just went beyond what was needed to really make this job better. April 28, 2015
