Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PattiB53 Really easy install, big difference
This insulation kit was so easy to install with two people, it took about and hour to do a two car garage door. We used seven sticky tapes per panel and followed the directions regarding trimming and pre-installation cleanup. We have two garages, a single and a double, so I purchased three boxes. We will do the smaller garage today.
It definitely makes a difference in the temperature of the garage and looks very industrial/space-like.

Very simple installation. Took around one and a half to two hours to install. Keep in mind the following:
When you install this product, even though it may be pre-cut, you will still need to measure each panel on your garage and cut as required the precut pieces. Many are complaining that the double sided take does not stick so well but I’ve so far not had any issues as the trick is to not only clean the panel of the garage but just before installing the precut piece, clean it as well as I’m sure most did not do.
Overall, this has made quite the difference in my garage, a very big noticeable difference and I would recommend.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DcinTX Good product, included adhesion strips aren't that great
The barrier foil itself is of good quality. I was not a fan of the included double back foam adhesive squares. First, there didn't seem to be enough, so I ran out quickly. I went and picked up a can of 3M spray adhesive and quickly completed the project. The spray adhesive secures the panels far better then the included fasteners

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lynn It works!
I have a metal garage door that faces east. It used to feel like opening an oven door when entering the garage. It's so much cooler now! I only had to trim one panel to fit. I was able to stuff the excess in the lip of the garage door panel after it was secured with the provided sticky squares and I added some double sided tape to the middle of the panel,just for extra security when the door opens and closes. Super easy to install. Definitely reduced energy cost.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by hbmtx Looks like JiffyPop for your garage door
Despite the statement in the instructions that there should be no need to cut the pieces of insulation to fit, I had to trim about 1.5 - 2 inches off of the height of each piece, and in some cases, I also needed to trim a small bit along one side. Also, there are spots where it looks like it could use more than just the six small pieces of double-sided tape. That said, I can feel a difference in the temperature by the sections that have the insulation versus those where I still need to put it up, so I do expect to see a benefit from it. I wish it had more of a matte or neutral appearance, though, as the shiny silver finish makes it look like you've covered your door in a Jiffy Pop wrapper.

It was really easy to install. We definitely were glad that we had purchased double sided duck tape before we started. But otherwise it's I noticeable difference. We do have a mail slot in our garage door so we just cut a hole for that and taped around the hole so the mail wouldn't get stuck in it. We're definitely happy with it.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DonV Meh. And buy extra tape.
Panels started to fall out almost immediately - ALL of the tape sticks to the door, no issue - it's sticking to the product itself that fails. Get more double-sided tape.
Can't say that I notice a huge difference TBH. Wasn't hard to install by any means (simple trim with a box knife and straight edge) but I just don't think I'm gaining a lot from the money spent. For the material provided (simply mylar bubble material) the cost of the kit should cover TWO doors, not just one. The fact that the adhesive tape supplied is insufficient also means more money on double-sided tape (which is NOT cheap).
It's a pass for me - YMMV.

Easy installation and there is a noticeable difference on the inside of the insulated garage door versus the uninsulated door.
