I looked into insulating my garage door a while back, but came to the conclusion that it wasn't really worth it for me. From what I read, most single family homes (like mine) are not insulated anywhere in the garage (except the wall that separates garage from living space)... meaning that even if you did insulate the door, the heat/cold still very easily transfers through the bare block walls, up through the concrete slab, and most notably through the ceiling drywall since it's typically not insulated above the garage. So, to me it just seemed like putting a bandaid on a severed artery...not gonna make much difference.

I think it can significantly help because the aluminum door is a huge heat sink. In the summer my door gets extremely hot from being in direct sun despite being painted white. That heat transfers into the garage. Conversely, in the winter some heat escapes through the door.

Another benefit is to reduce the noise of the door opening and closing.

That said, I want the styrofoam panels and will hold out for a deal on those.

Folks thinking about using styrofoam to insulate garage door might think twice before doing it. for fire safety reasons. I think styrofoam is good for R3 or 4 and is very flammable:

Owens Corning kit is fiberglass with backing that is considerably less flammable and is rated R8.

Just my 2 cents...

Ugg literally just bought the attic insulator off Amazon prime for $60. Don't know if it's worth it to return and get the HD to save a few bucks?

I think it is a decent price. Last year it was about this price and it made front page like this

Can you share why you would rather have styrofoam than this? Thanks.

Mostly because it's easier to install and looks nicer. It's also not as heavy. It has a slightly better rating, most likely due to easier installation. One of the reviewers of the styrofoam unit included FLIR photos of before/after install temperatures and the results were impressive.

I've researched adding insulation to our garage door to death, including cutting up 4x8 panels of 1 1/2" thick Rmax Thermasheath but it's impossible to find where I live and it would have added enough weight to the garage door, requiring a door rebalance service. The Owens Corning kit seemed to be the way to go (specialized for garage door installation, is available, wouldn't add that much weight to the door, etc) but was too pricey at $75-80 - considering you need (x2) kits to do a 2-car garage door. This is a great deal that got me to buy a couple kits. Thanks Op! Repped.

I agree. I have a one piece ,wooden uninsulated door that gets direct sunlight. On a hot day with the sun shining on it I measured the inside temperature of the door at well over 130 degrees. I used the foam sheets and it reduced the temperature by over 40 degrees. This significantly lowered the garage temperature. Since my bedroom is directly above the garage I'm thinking of putting the polystyrene sheets on the garage ceiling also, although I'm not sure how much benefit there would be.

Guess it depends where you live and what direction your garage door is facing. I had this for 2 years now with tremendous result. But I live in South Florida.

Edit: btw it was extremely easy to install. I was worried it would start to look bad quickly but upto now (2 years) it still looks good.

at a 3rd of the cost. I most definitely would return and buy the HD one.
