Insulating Garage Doors

16,823 Views
Insulatingthe garage, will keep it warmer in the winter and cooler in thesummer. Same for the garage's adjacent room.
***Bonusadded: it will also reduce street noise too***
Ourtwo car garage is right underneath our upstairs bedrooms, and rightnext to our bedroom, so we knew we had to do something about that.
Replacingthe garage doors would be nice, but not necessary, so the very nextbest thing was to insulate the garage doors.
Weread a lot of info, and what we settle on
doingwas using this a reflective foil insulation. It comes in rolls andit's easy to cut
(scissorsor knife).
Forthis to work properly, there is a need to create an "air pocket"between the actual door and the insulation.

    So how do you create the needed air pocket between the door and the insulation? By NOT taping it?
