Insulating Garage Doors

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.

    It looks pretty straightforward, I wonder if I can do it myself. My garage gets really cold in the winter, and I want to insulate it. I am replacing garage doors this week, and I will ask if they can insulate it too. How long did it take you to finish the project?

      @Daniela Adams it does not take long at all. the roll is already cut to height, all I had to do is cut the length and fold over the height if needed.

    Daniela, the insulation work that was done for that garage door looks amazing. That's interesting that you insulated your door with that insulation. How would that insulation do if the temperature gets really high during the summer time?
