I couldn’t afford to replace our garage door with something more substantial and with brutal winter weather around the corner, this was my solution to stay warm and productive:
What I used to insulate my garage door:
Make sure your surface is as clean as possible so that the double sided table adheres properly.
How to install insulation:
- Apply Double Sided Tape to your garage door. There is no need to cover every surface, simply lining the sides should be sufficient.
- Cut Foam Board to size and install into each panel of your garage door. Press the foam board into the double sided tape and hold light pressure for a minute.
- Spray the foam board with adhesive spray and allow about a minute for the spray to get tacky.
- Cut Reflective Insulation Sheet to size and install over the foam insulation board pieces. I recommend cutting the reflective sheet just slightly larger than your opening to make sure you have enough to tuck over the sides.
Watch It Here:
Insulation keeps cold air from coming in and hot air from escaping. This solution alone makes a huge difference but for added warmth, consider installing a heat source that is safe for your working conditions.
