How Can I Insulate My Garage Door?

June 26th 2002

Question from Deborah in Edmonton, AB -----

Dear Shell,

I have an uninsulated garage door that I need to insulate because the bedroom above it gets very cold in the winter and hot in the summer. Do I glue Styrofoam insulation on the door or can I use foil insulation?

Thank You,



Dear Deborah,

For the best result, use a foil insulating product such as Reflectix, Astro Foil or Korona, all of which are available across Canada. Be sure to tape all the joints. You can apply it with Velcro and be sure to allow the product to hinge when the door goes up and down.

Itís Just That Easy
