Hard to tell for sure from the pictures, but it might be the same C type channels as in the photos of your door. Makes a huge difference when working in the garage, stays much more comfortable & uses less juice to keep it warm.
I had a friend that worked at lowes for a while and something most people don’t know… If you can get it from a catalog or a website, you can order it, have it shipped and pick it up at Lowes!
I ended up not using this product because I needed a bit more insulation up here in cold Indiana ! DISCLAIMER: Any posts on LJ are posted by individuals acting in their own right and do not necessarily reflect the views of LJ. Owens Corning Garage Door Insulation Kit is ideal for use on uninsulated metal garage doors.
In addition to the heat reflecting properties of the Radiant Barrier, it has an R-Value of 6.7*. Pre insulated metal garage doors cost hundreds of dollars more than standard uninsulated doors.  Why pay more when you can easily add the same insulation panels to an uninsulated door for much less? Keeping you and your family toasty warm during the cold winter months is extremely important to help prevent colds, flu or more serious health problems such as pneumonia. The main purpose of a garage door design is to keep thieves and intruders out, not warmth in.
Small heaters only heat up the area directly around them which is ideal if you use your garage space as an office and keep the heater next to your desk, but is not well suited to a space where you need to entire room to be heated. Insulating garage walls is often a task considered too large for a beginner to carry out on their own. If you have the budget to do so, it might be worth purchasing a weatherproof door with insulation built into the panels. If you decide to replace the garage door entirely, here at JB Doors we offer an extensive range of state-of-the-art insulated roller garage doors for complete security, insulation and accessibility.
The kit comes with eight fiberglass insulation panels with a durable, washable white vinyl facing.


I am wondering if this is worth to spend almost $200 plus i don't know how much it costs for the garage door adjustment. As more and more homeowners are choosing to convert their garage into workshops, gyms or office space, now is the time to check the energy efficiency of your garage in preparation for use during the winter. A simple and affordable way to ensure your garage space is a comfortable temperature is to insulate your garage door.
Most garage door designs are already fully equipped with weather stripping so check yours regularly to ensure it isn’t cracked or showing signs of deterioration. Areas around the pipes are often left uninsulated, as well as any electrical sockets, windows and vents located in the garage. If you have converted your garage into a workshop, bear in mind that standard space heaters are a fire hazard when operated near chemicals and sawdust, so choose a heater specifically designed for garages. If you are looking to insulate the garage, it is strongly recommended that your hire the expertise of a professional contractor. These garage door designs feature improved seals between the joints to keep winter winds from entering in between the cracks and crevices. The doors I have form a C channel on the inside the way the aluminum is curled in on the inside. We use insulfoam in our insulated sectional overhead door panels, so it’s cool to know you can add it to plain panels. Also included are latex gloves and repair tape, along with retainer clips and a self-adhesive fastening system that provides a quick and secure method to hold the panels in place. I cannot say for sure whether or not you will need to make a slight adjustment for your garage door opener becuase there are multiple factors that will determine that such as the HP your opener has, etc.
Your health should be the primary focus which is why our team of experts at JB Doors have put together a list of the five main ways to make your garage a more energy efficient space.
There are a range of garage door insulation kits on the market today to make the job easier, where the only tool you will need during the installation process is a utility or pocket knife to cut the insulation down to size and fit within the panels.
If your garage door doesn’t currently have weather stripping or you are looking to replace your current installation, use a strip of pliable rubber, vinyl or foam for a bottom seal which will help prevent drafts from breezing under the door and entering your garage.


For a more energy efficient garage space, seal any holes or leaks in the walls and windows using caulking or expanding foam insulation to keep the warmth in. Forced air heater designs are available in propane and electric and use a fan to circulate warm air throughout the garage making it the perfect solution to heat up the space quickly. Research into reputable companies who will carry out premium quality insulation services to ensure a warm, well-ventilated garage space without the risk of condensation or rot.
Not only does this deliver on value for money, but it’s incredible insulating qualities have proven to be an effective way of keeping your garage warm all winter long. I hadn't looked in a few years and this Owens Corning product is exactly what I wanted long ago. I would double check the specs on your opener prior to purchasing the insulation product, in order to see if they have any information on this subject. If you have any cracked or broken window panes, be sure to replace them as soon as possible to avoid any drafts or security risks.
Bend the foam a little bit and they snapped right into place without any adhesive or fasteners. The Styrofoam could probably be lighter, but this is only about 15lbs and I didn't really need to upgrade my garage extension springs at all (even though I did, to 110 lbs, now my garage springs up when I disengage the opener). As it turns out the 2 sheets of half inch (all they had in stock) worked better than 1” thick, as it was easier to bend. So, I don't think you have to worry too much about the added weight, unless, when you currently disengage your opener your door closes.
I went from a 90lb to 110lb spring which was a little overkill on a typical post-1995 home, thin metal door. The only tools needed to complete the installation are a tape measure, utility knife, straight edge and a marker.
