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 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.

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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SD468 Works well.
The garage temperature was lowering as I fitted each new panel to the garage door. I had a double and a single door to install the radiant barrier on to. It does not go up in 10 minutes, I took about 4 hours to do the "three" doors. The less cutting and fitting you do, the faster it will go on.
You will need double stick tape, I had smaller inside panels on the double door that worked well with the tape strips supplied, but the larger outside panels needed 4"-6" of tape along each end's edge. The top and bottom edges stuff behind the panels so don't need any tape. I cleaned the garage door panels very well with alcohol and never had any issues with the supplied tape strips and the double sided tape.
This stuff is tough, hard to damage, doesn't tear easily without a scissors or a razor blade. Use a fresh blade and it will slice through it easily.
The sun hits my doors in the morning, Dallas April temps in the morning were 105 deg F on each unprotected panel and 75 deg F with the barrier installed. I only did a few panels and checked the temps as I didn't want to put on three boxes and find it didn't give me what I was looking for.

Easy installation. Lightweight so it shouldn't effect the door mechanism.

It's a perfect insulator I just need an insulation on my garage ceiling.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by racollin Good product but measure first.
Materials are good and easy to work with. Be sure to measure the panels in you garge befoe ordering though. Standard-cut insulation panels did not fit mine without extensive cutting and taping. What I expected to be a 20 min. job turned into 5 hours. Also plan to use two-sided tape rather than the small "stickies" provided.

Does not stick and hold onto door. I'm going to try some type of adhesive and see if that works
