Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DIYer Didn't fit my garage door.
Check your door panel sizes before buying!!!!! Don't assume that they are all the same size. All panels in the kit are cut for 21" high panels. My garage door has 2 panels that 18" high and 2 panels that are 24" high. I had to cut down some of the 21" panels to 18" and tape the small strip to the other panels to use on the 24" high panels. The kit doesn't come with enough vinyl tape to tape the pieces together, so I used white duct tape. Fortunately, the cross braces are positioned to cover most of the seams. Don't know yet how effective this will be in cooling my garage.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by FLLDIVER JUST REMOVED AFTER THE RATS AND ROACHES MADE THEIR NESTS IN THE FIBERGLASS PANELS
I purchased 2 kits for my garage door. First handling of the pieces were very cumbersome because of them being fiberglass with a vinyl thin covering. I was able to cut them to size easily enough and sure they helped with keeping my bills down but little did I know would they also attract rats and roaches to make nests and burrow in the panels.
I just yesterday pulled them down, had to pull all the little bits and pieces that were left behind down, wash the door down w all the rat feces, let it dry over night then I installed the Reach Barrier panels that were extremely easy to install after cleaning the corners w alcohol so the double faced tape squares would better stick. No fiberglass and 1/2 the cost !!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AnnShamrock This product adds a lot of WEIGHT. READ MY REVIEW !
I'm giving it 4 stars (for now). I'm a 52 year old handy-woman, After watching the You Tube tutorial (HIGHLY RECOMMEND you do this FIRST) It was very easy to install by myself.
You might want to sand the metal where you are going to stick the 2 clips. Some reviews say the adhesive tape melts over time? I'm in Las Vegas and my door faces West (brutal heat) so I will see over time how these hold up.
OK, HERE IS MY CONCERN: I did not see weight on the box. I'm guessing between 6-10 lbs. each box. I have a 16 panel door so this seems like a lot of added weight on the Garage door motor. To test this: 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. Have a reliable garage door company test this if you think your door is not calibrated correctly.
After 3 days I'm already noticing the panels droop out of the door. I am going to add a thin strip of wood (like the thickness of a paint stick stirrer) to each panel to hold them better in place and/ or POSSIBLY aluminum tape as well.
I know there are more lightweight panels out there. They just did not sell them at Home Depot.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Burls As advertised
I installed this to my garage and it keeps the place much cooler and the heat out. My garage fridge does not have to work so hard anymore. Since my garage had windows I used the Gila window film to black out the windows so I could put the insulation over them and not have the pink being seen from the outside (HOA rules). Keeping the heat was more important than the sunlight. My temperature gun was hitting 108 - 110 on the doors in some considerably hot weather and after I installed the temperature was reading about 8 - 10 degrees cooler. The garage just felt cooler in general. The walls of the garage still get hot but overall I am very pleased with this purchase. Installation was as described and I needed to buy two of these for my two car garage

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by HoustonHobby worst idea ever.
I read the reviews and bought two garage door kits for west facing garage doors believing 1) they would help reduce the heat 2) would be easy to install because they are a kit for a garage door. 1) there might be a slight difference during the day but the bigger issue was the garage did not cool off after the sun went down so the garage did not get cooler. 2) the insulation keeper taps do not stick i have had different ones come off every other day. The insulation comes loose and when it does near the bottom it trips the garage door stop. I had to tape the bottom down with metal duct tape. It is fiberglass and not contained so on windy days i have found small amounts on my truck hood, dont think that is a goid thing long term being as i do work in my garage sometimes. I am removing it all this weekend and marking this up as experience (dont believe the reviews).

This product is wonderful and so glad that I purchased it as it is very easy to install if you follow the instructions and make sure that you clean each panel before applying the double sided tape for the clips.
No problems after two weeks but I did use some light weight wooden slats around some of the edges to make sure that they held in place without to much added weight to the door

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jersh Great product, garage is much cooler now!
My only regret with this product is not buying it sooner! My garage faces southwest, so needless to say it gets HOT in there with the intense Florida sun beating down on it. I bought 2 of these kits for our standard 2-car garage door and installation was a breeze. We have heavy duty huricane bars on our garage door, so I had to make more cuts than most, but the flip side is that I didn't have to use the tabs to secure the panels, the huricane bars hold the panels in place very well. I definitely recommend wearing the gloves that they provide, the fiber glass insulation is very itchy and will iritate your hands if you don't! All in all, I have 100% satisfied with this product. We had a sunny 95 degree day today, and the temperature of the garage was no warmer than the outside temp, before it would be 20-30 degrees hotter inside.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by katt178 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.
