I didn't really think they would make much of a difference but I'm pleased to say that they do. My garage/workshop gets the full South Carolina afternoon sun. It gets hot in there. Adding the insulation to the doors dropped the inside temp about 6 degrees on a similar day.
Very easy to install. I made a cardboard template of one of the panels on the garage door and then just simply used the template to cut each of the 16 panels (2 kits) with a utility knife.
Before doing that I wiped down each garage door panel and attached the included adhesive fasteners, 6 per panel, and let them set while I cut the insulation panels to size.
Total installation time about 2 hours (including measuring twice).

Easy installation, and it works like a charm. I live in Houston, TX. and the outside of my garage doors face the sun in the afternoon, all the way until evening; and these radiant barrier panels keep my garage cooler than ever before. Even in 100 degree temperature, you can tell the difference. I also added a portable A/C to drop my temps in the garage into the mid/high 70's. GREAT BUY!

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.

I am located in the Phoenix area. My garage door gets direct afternoon sun and heats up to well over 100 degrees, e.g. 130+. I installed this product using double-sided carpet tape and attaching to the outside edges of each garage door section. I sealed the vertical seams using aluminum duct tape. Entire process took several hours to tape and fit all of the panels.
After install my garage is still extremely hot but I believe that this is mostly because I have an un- insulated attic and the outside concrete transfers ground heat.. The reflective material does reduce the door temp by 20+ degrees and keeps heat from transferring through the door.

The non-insulated garage door faces the west in Henderson, NV (southern suburb of Las Vegas) and the afternoon sun shined on the door for over 4 five hours a day. Before putting up the insulation kit, the door was too hot to touch and the garage temperature was unbearable. After putting up the kit, the improvement in heat transfer was incredible. Would highly recommend this product. Installed it on the panels of the door, however the instructions indicated that a better result would be achieved if it was installed on the frame, but I have absolutely no complaints related to how well the product is performing

This product was actually better than I hoped for - the instructions were simple and installation wasn't all that bad even using two kits to cover a 2 car size door - I cleaned the door surfaces and the surface of the insulation where the peel and stick pieces go and just to be safe also followed up with strips of the metal or foil type duct tape on some edges. The insulation has made an improvement with temps and noise coming thru.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Installation is a pain - skip the liquid nails idea.
I'm reserving my opinion with regard to how well these will insulate until it gets cold. What I really want to comment on is that putting it up was a pain. First, be aware that you will probable have to trim the panels to fit around things like hinges and door opener and handles. Not a big deal, they cut easily with a scissors. I even had to trim the panels down to fit my door. It is a standard size door, but the panels were too big. Again, not a big deal. Second, I read all of the reviews. Many said to forget the included foam squares, and use liquid nails. Sounded like good advice. WRONG!! What they should have said was use BOTH the double sided squares and liquid nails. The problem with the liquid nail idea is that it takes time to cure, there is not enough tack to keep the panels up while it dries. The panels kept falling off the door. That made a big mess - glue on the door and panels and no way to hold them up. We eventually had to try to position the squares in place but by then the liquid nails had smeared in all the wrong places. We finally got some double back tape up and that held the panels. My advice is to get some good indoor/outdoor double back tape and skip the liquid nails. It might add $15 to the project but it will save a headache and a lot of mess. I figure in a year when these things fall off the door, I'll have to scrape/sand the door, repaint and get another kit and double back tape and try again. That assumes it really does insulate.
