How to Install Garage Door Insulation

Whether you want to reduce heating costs in your home or make good use of your garage space, properly installing the right type of insulation is key to it’s effectiveness.

Applying additional Layers – Its only worth using an extra layer of Low-E Insulation if you also have an airspace beside the foil surface. There is no great benefit in doubling up the insulation. To learn more about how airspaces work visit our blog page.

Carefully follow each of the steps below and you will soon have a well-insulated garage door and improve the comfort in your home. Take care when using sharp blades and always refer to manufacturers guidelines.

Step 1: Clean the Garage Door
Clean down the garage door with a damp cloth to remove any dust that may have settled. Pay extra attention to removing dust from the struts of the garage door as these will be the main contact points for adhesion and any dust will keep the tape from holding.
