    I was so happy after I installed this product. I noticed a difference in a few hours. I use my garage for autos and a workshop working with glass. I also noticed a difference in temperatures in my upstair bedrooms, since they are over the garage. If this product works great in the winter months I can't wait for summer to see what the difference amounts to.

    The kit comes with two stick-on clamps per panel used to fasten them to the garage door. There should be three (one for the center of the panel) because when the garage door is open, gravity causes the panels to sag greatly in the middle. When the door is again lowered, you need to push the panels in to get them against the surface of the door. Very sloppy, imo.

    Also, the panels protrude inward a few inches as expected and this interferes with my automatic garage door opener's safety feature. The little cameras see something in the way and the door reverses.

              After dealing with a hot garage in summer and cold garage in winter I finally bit the bullet and purchased this item. The Southern sun beats on my garage door all day and affects the temp in the bonus room above. After installing I noticed a temp difference in the garage with in the next couple of days. Have not been through a winter yet but expect it to function the same.

                        Finally someone made this kit. For years I've wondered why someone hasn't made a precut kit to do the trick. Bought two this weekend, and my wife and I had them both installed in about an hour. It would have been nice that there were three pins per panel vice two. Also, I insalled a small hard plastic square behind each manual locking device to protect the material from future wear. And too we used metal foil tape to reinforce it. First morning following the install, we observed a noticable change in climate control. Yes!

                        Don't know how beneficial this product is considering that the wind blows around the whole garage door. Definitely quiets the door operation but adds a lot of weight which makes the door difficult to open and close.

                          My kids room is on top of the garage. All walls insulated except the garage door. Every morning the room is cooler or warmer depending the season. In winter Cooler than the rest of the hall way or the rest of the house. On summer hotter than the rest of the house. After applying this to my 2 car garage door the room is the same temperature than the rest of the house. Definitely will recommend to my neighbored and everyone that have the same problem.

                            Works pretty well. Adds about 20 lbs to single car door. Combination of tabs (2/panel) + tucking work best; apply tape as needed for additional support. Use liquid nails to apply tabs, let set overnight, works very well. Be careful cutting holes for tabs as facing can tear. Two boxes were shipped to ACE for pickup; about 2 panels in each box had frayed edges, which I fortunately could work around; so I would inspect where possible. Best advice: measure thrice, because you can only cut once and get good fits. Instructions advise to cut 1/2" longer than panel inset; I went 3/4" to 1" allowing me to tuck more, but any longer would bulge and be counter-productive. Garage benefits from insulation, worthwhile.

                                  The overall weight causes the garage door to sag in open position, and makes the door diffcult to close.

Prep the garage and mounting posts with rubbing alcohol before sticking on with tape so it sticks better. It's been three weeks since I put them up and they are holding up to very high heat from the sun on my garage doors. Garage is noticeably cooler now.

                                          I wanted to insulate my garage for cooler times during this hot summer. The insulation does a better job of retaining heat than retaining the cool of the nigth the next day. Next I will add a room airconditioner to see if that helps. I certainly added a lot for quietness.

                                            It was easy to install but the clips 'threw' me for a minute. They go together 'solid arm to open arm' and do grip well when correctly put together. I have a west facing metal double garage door in Texas and it gets VERY hot to the touch - my garage temp in the summer has been 100degF +. Yes, Ladies CAN install this product well and yes, it DOES make a great difference.

                                            This was easy to install and I highly recommend it.

                                            This product allows me to woodwork in my garage when the heat is unbearable outside. It cuts down on the noise from my power tools so it does not disturb my neighbors. It cuts way down on the noise as I am putting down the garage door. Outstanding product.

                                              I was looking for a way to insulate the garage door to keep the garage warmer in the winter, where I do woodworking projects, and also to keep my daughter's room warmer since it sits over the garage. I needed 2 complete kits since we have a 2-car garage. The instructions were easy to understand, the materials were of good quality, and it took probaby around 1 - 1/2 hours to complete the whole door. I noticed an immediate change in the overall temperature the very next day. I thought it was a little pricey, but overall am satisfied because it was easy to install, does what it's supposed to do, and all the materials needed to install were in the box. I would definitely recommend this product.

                                              Works great for if you buy a house and the garage door is not insulated and you don't want to put alot of money into it. Our garage is warm and quieter. The room above it has better temperature control now as well as our living room which shares a wall with the garage. However, if I had the money to spend on the good garage door with insulated hard panels, I would do it purely for aesthetics and ease of cleaning if needed.

                                                  Installed 3 insulation kits (1 double car garage door and 1 single car garage door) a few weeks ago. The temperature inside our west-facing garage went down about 10 degrees, which will be a $$ saver as it should help keep the west side of the house cooler. The white vinyl backing blends well with the interior of the garage, as opposed to other silver-colored backings.

                                                        This product is great but make sure to count the number of door panels on your garage doors. I have 10 panels even though the doors are a standard seven foot. The kit comes with 8 panels, I will need another kit to finish the job. It did take about an hour to install the first door but got faster as the job progressed.

                                                        Very good product. Easy to install. Does a great job with everything you need to insulate your garage doors.

                                                                The Owens Corning insulation was nicely cut to fit on height. Only required easy trimming on one end with a box cutter. Two cartons contain plenty of material for a standard metal double garage door. The temerature decrease in the garage was noticeable right away...about 10 or more degrees. We are in SW Florida with a West facing house. You could fry an egg on the inside of the garage door before adding this insulation.

The results are fantastic on our west facing doors as the blistering heat they used to impart in the garage is gone. The box says 20% reduction in noise, but it seems much more than that - its almost eerie how quiet it got.[...]Wish I would have done this years ago!

                                                                        The kit comes with two stick-on clamps per panel used to fasten them to the garage door. There should be three (one for the center of the panel) because when the garage door is open, gravity causes the panels to sag greatly in the middle. When the door is again lowered, you need to push the panels in to get them against the surface of the door. Very sloppy, imo.

                                                                        Also, the panels protrude inward a few inches as expected and this interferes with my automatic garage door opener's safety feature. The little cameras see something in the way and the door reverses.

Installed on double garage door to keep out the heat from the Florida sun which hits the door first thing in the morning and made the garage very uncomfortable all day. Mission accomplished. I expect it will also help keep the house cooler by reducing heat transfer through the interior walls.
