Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RonS Good product, works great
I bought two kits for my two car garage and all went as planned according to instructions. It would have gone even quicker had I done all my cuts first, but still took less than two hours. My garage is much less cold and since two bedrooms sit directly above they are warmer as well. The even makes less noise opening and closing. Really happy about this purchase. The only mod I made was to buy some matching white duct tape. Some of the edges weren't able to be tucked in because of the way my garage is made. When the garage door is up the insulation would show from gravity pulling it down. A couple strips of the tape and it all looks great. NOTE: if you have an automatic garage door opener make sure and get the spring adjusted after installation. As my door is for a two car garage adding the insulation doubled the weight of the door.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MakingDo Retainer clips fail after 3 years
This was a wonderful product for the first 2 years. After that, the retainer clips that secure the insulation to the door loosened and began to fall out one by one. The stick pads held, but the plastic must have warped and the two clips no longer clamp together tightly in about half of the clip pairs. Over the next 2 years, fallen clips were lost or run over until now, 4 years out, I have only half of my clips and the insulation falls off when the door opens. I would recommend this if you were to do something fairly simple. After 2 years, push back the insulation at the retainer clip and wrap a wire twist tie around the stem of the clip (with both clips engaged with each other). This will hold the teeth of the two clips together and they will stay together. I'm trying this now, so I don't know if it is a long term solution.

Great product stopped the cold very well however I went on a 3 hour round trip to 2 different Home Depots to find out that for some reason it's only available online which is sort of a hassle . I needed it that day although when I ordered it, it showed up in 2 days

The product was easy to install . I did my double garage door in about 2 hours. It seems to be making a significant difference in retaining heat during cold weather and repelling heat in hot weather. The extra weight required me to get the door springs tightened to suspend the doors weight and not over tax the electric opener.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rabbit Made a world of difference
I settled on the Corning garage door insulation kit because of the higher insulation value (R8) compared to other rigid insulation solutions that only achieved R4.
This kit consists of eight fiberglass insulation panels with plastic facing on one side and fittings to hold them in place. To insulate all the panels in my three garage doors (10 panels each) required four kits. The panels are cut to size using a razor knife (wear the gloves provided with the kit). All the required materials are included: insulation, fittings & gloves. The only tools required were a straight edge, tape measure, sharpie, and razor knife. Plenty of extra fittings and gloves were included.
My Air Conditioning/Heater contractor did the installation--they hadn't installed this solution before and it was an eye-opener for them. Prior to doing the installation, they said that it would only take about an hour to perform the installation on my three garage doors. Five hours later the job was done. I'm glad I had a tradesman do the work, it came out better with less waste than if I had done the job myself. The cooling effect on my Eastward facing garage doors is outstanding and is definitely reducing my electricity bill while keeping my garage from being a sauna whenever the temperature got above 80 degrees.
Unexpected Pro: Reduces street noise.
Unexpected Con: Added weight taxes my garage door opener.

I've had this up for 3 mos and it's been great, so far. No problems putting it up, but the gloves are too small and it made for an itchy job.

I bought 2 of these and made sure they were cut to the right size before I installed them. The ends keep falling out when the door is open. I usually have to push several ends in a couple of times a week.

I like the product. Easy to install on my 8 x 9 garage door without cutting. My only advise is wait till warm weather before installing. The double sided tape won't adhere in the cold. I would have given a five star rating if the instructions advised mounting in warm weather.

Double sided tape provided in package to hold on fasteners to door. Tape came loose on one panel before insulation was complete. Tape on all fasteners failed within a day.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Tomk Worst Product EVER
The product started to sag when the door was up--tried to Tape edge where there was no overlap on my door. The heat prevented the tape from staying and it began to sag badly. Called customer service for Owens-Corning and they said they would send me additional clips to hold in place. That was over a month ago--no clips--there are not enough clips to hold it in place if your door has no edge to tuck behind. I am removing this product from my door today!!!!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Josh Works Well for Me
Bought a house with a climate controlled detached garage with an uninsulated door....obviously not a real good idea. This product fixed that problem. Obviously cuts down on heat transmission into the building from the sun, and in the winter one load of wood through the woodstove keeps the garage warm for hours.
Certainly alot cheaper than replaceing a non-insulated door with an insulated one.
Make sure to use rubbing alcohol or some other solvent to clean the inside of the door prior to attached the sticky side of the clips or else they won't stick. I used metal tape to secure the edges of the insulation to the edges of the door. Helps keep things neat. It will fall down if you cycle the door alot.

I am not a Do-It-Yourself type of woman, but I completely installed my garage door insulation all by myself. It was extremely easy, and best of all, my garage stays just about the same temperature as the inside of my home. What a difference this made. This is a very easy product to install. I wish I had done this sooner.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Brettworth Went up quick, very good potential.
I literally just installed this. Cuts like normal insulation - so have a hard surface, straight edge, and sharp knife. I'm usually more inclined to do things overkill, so instead of trusting just the double sided tape, I put everything up, then added spray adhesive behind everything. Only spraying half a sheet at a time. I really doubt that will ever move.

The product was easy to install, the insulation comes in pre-cut sheets that conveniently were the exact dimensions required for my garage door panels. One of my panels had a tear in the vinyl backing on opening but the kit comes with a segment of repair tape. Overall happy with the product.

I had to cut to fit my doors because I have a six panel door. But other than that, it was an easy install. I do wish it had more attachments for my project.

First time installed really have no clues how the clips and double side tape work, have to go on youtube and look for the instructions. The pkg did not have a clear instructions until you watch youtube video. The foam need trim a little to fit the panel, Other than that it's all good...

I live in Ohio so the summer heat on the door is not as bad as in a southern state. The plastic retaining clips all lost their shape from the summer heat on the door. When that happened, they sprung loose and could not be re-used. They were then useless. I searched the internet but can't find replacements.

I received all the fasteners, but there was no plastic repair tape in two boxes as stated on boxes. My particular door in the middle has no recessed areas to slide insulation in to; therefore, we needed the tape. I phoned 3 times and, hopefully, it's on its way.
The door is so much quitier going up and down and faces the west, so it's not as hot in garage either.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SteveInTn A bit pricey, but worth it.
My wife picked it out because our in-laws have it and recommended it. Our garage door is the type this insulation is specifically made for, no cutting required. Your garage door may require doing some cutting to fit. Know that ahead of time. My wife installed it while I was at work. She had watched the video that I found on YouTube, found by searching for "garage door insulation Owings Corning". It took her longer than the average, more like 2-1/2 hours, though it was not difficult, she says. We had purchased a roll of white duct tape for securing some of the edges, recommended by some of the reviews. Wear the gloves included in the box. Also, open the box before you take it home and make sure everything is there (this was recommended by one review, and we did, and everything was there in the box when we picked it up). The result? It works very well. We heat with a wood stove which is in the garage, and we can tell a big difference in the winter. It's a light color and this makes the garage brighter. It is fairly expensive and you could probably jerry-rig something which would work as well (you can find those solutions on You Tube as well), but the extra cost for the convenience is worth it, we feel.

Installation was very easy and straight forward. This not only helps the garage temperature in winter, but it reduces the door noise when opening and closing.
My only wish is that this product was also available for 10 foot wide doors, not just 8 and 9 ft. I don't want to have to buy a whole new kit just to complete a 10 foot door.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Batman not worth the money or product
We live in Arizona so the garage gets just as hot as the outside.My wife bought the two boxes recommended for our size of garage door. First I noticed that the length was to short, then the plastic clips were of cheap quality, the first panel went into place with no problems. Once in place I notice that the center was drooping. I tried to pull the insulation tight and repositioned the clip but it still sagged. I noticed in the directions that the pictures of the garage door had some lips and mine did not. In the pictures these lips held the insulation panels better to the garage door panel. I installed all the insulation onto the garage door and could not get them tight enough to keep them sagging. I used the tape on the seams and it still looks like bad. Its been about month and i don't notice any difference in temperature but I notice that my garage door does not look neat. My wife says she spent close to 200$ for this kit so I don't have the heart to take it down and toss it in the garbage. Installation was easy but the clips are cheap way of attaching the insulation to the door. Glue would be out of the question because someone would probably want to remove it later or the glue would not hold it. Maybe some semi flexible ribs on the outer layer would help. i used on and a half sheets of the insulation per panel and i have four.

The kit contains all that you need to insulate a 9' door. The instructions are easily understood and the install should go smoothly if you follow the instructions. Very satisfied with the completed project. After you install the first half of a double wide door, you'll be able to do the second kit in half the time.
