FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT GARAGE DOOR INSULATION

No matter what type of insulation you go for, it will increase the energy efficiency of the garage door. However, depending on where you live, you might find more benefit from one material over another. Here are three of the most popular insulation types for garage doors:

  • Batt Insulation. This is a flexible insulation that is commonly made of fiberglass and found stuffed into external walls. Batt insulation is usually backed by foil or paper that act as barriers for vapor and air. Insulating values are between R-3 to R-4 per inch of thickness.
  • Foam Board Insulation. Another common type of insulation is foam boards. These are rigid panels that are typically made from polystyrene. The good thing is that they provide a very high insulating value for a rather little thickness. Panels commonly range between ½ inch to 1 inch in thickness and provide insulation values ranging from R-3.3 to R-6.5. Foam boards are usually packed with vinyl or aluminium.
  • Reflective Insulation. In reflective insulation, highly reflective aluminium foils are applied to either one or both sides of the insulation materials, such as polyethylene bubbles and cardboard. This type of insulation is excellent for reflecting radiant heat, making them the ideal choice for garages that get very hot in the summer climate. The approximate R-value for reflective insulation is 3.5 to 6.

For you to be able to properly insulate your garage, you’ll need to understand the R-value of the insulation. R-value will determine how effective the insulation will be, including the overall resistance to heat transference. Depending on where you live, you’ll want insulation with an R-value of anywhere from 6 to 12.

Going for insulation with a higher R-value will give you better protection for your garages. It will also depend on where in your house is the garage. If you have a home with an attached garage, you will see that insulating your garage will also help the rest of the house retain heat or stay cool.
Another factor to consider is the thickness and density of the garage door, as well as the materials used for insulation.

Insulating the garage door can help you save money in a lot of ways. Here’s four reasons why we believe it is totally worth it to insulate garage door:

  • Lower Energy Costs. The temperature in the garage can impact the temperature in your house if it is attached to it. This can potentially result in higher electricity or fuel being used to keep your home cool or hot. Insulated doors can keep your garages significantly cooler in summer and warmer in winter.
  • Long-Lasting HVAC Equipment. Keeping your home cool in summer and warm in winter will not only save you on energy costs; it will also prevent your air conditioning or heating equipment from switching on and off that frequently.
  • Reduce Overall Stress on Your Car. Even if your car starts with ease in the cold weather, it does have a negative impact. Having insulated doors on your garages means your car will start in less extreme weather, helping keep the engines in a good shape and stress free.
  • Added Value for the Home. Insulated garages add value to your home’s worth, should you ever decide to sell it. It will show prospective buyers that they’ll be able to save on energy costs, equipment costs as well as extend the life of their car. It will also make the garages quieter, keep the pollution out more and make them look good and last longer.

Insulating metal garage doors would mean it’ll prevent freezing temperatures as well as scorching heat from entering the inside of the garage. It will also prevent any outside noise from entering the garage room or disturb the neighbours from the internal noises.

Rule of thumb, the Panels for an average Double garage door will be approx. 11Kg. The spring on your garage door is designed to carry a bit of extra weight & we have found maybe 1 in 20 doors need the spring adjusted
No, this is the beauty of KoolDoor, the product is secured behind the lip of the panel, this gives it a tight secure fit without the use of adhesive.
Spray foams can be used to insulate garage doors. They can be good for both, air-sealing as well as R-value. However, spray foam might be an overkill for most of the garage insulation projects, as it is a high-end material which is typically used for energy-efficient construction. It might make sense to invest in spray foam if you plan to convert your garage into a living space.

Here is how you can insulate your metal garage door:

  • Determine the Insulation to Use. You can insulate a metal garage door using various materials, such as fiberglass and foam. Even though fiberglass has a strong insulation value, it does come with potential health hazards like asbestos. This is why we recommend going with foam insulation for safety reasons. You can use polyurethane foam sheets or use a simple garage insulation kit. While the garage insulation kits already have everything you need for the insulation process, their results aren’t the best.
  • Obtain the Materials. You will need to measure the dimensions on all of the individual panels on your garage door. Next, get the total area and use the value to determine the number of foam sheets you’ll need. Purchase foam sheets necessary to cover the entire area, as well as double-sided adhesive tapes. If you are opting for an insulation kit, just make sure the kit has enough foam for all panels in your metal garage door.
  • Install Polyurethane Insulation. For this, you will need to take a sheet of foam and transfer the panel dimensions into it. Make sure that you add at least 1 inch to every side so that you’re creating a good, snuggly fit into the panels. Using a sharp utility knife, trim the insulation sheets to size, with the help of a straight edge as a reference. Cut a minimum of 4 pieces of double-sided adhesive tapes and then position them on the door panel’s surface evenly. Tuck the insulation foam in the panels. You will notice that the foam will flexx a little to help make the installation easier. Keep pressing the foam firmly till it gets strongly attached to the adhesive. Follow this exact procedure for all panels.
  • Using Kits for Insulation. Most insulation kits will come with ready-made foams, rubber gloves, retainer clips, adhesive and other accessories. Take out all materials from the package and make sure you have everything you need. For protection, always use rubber gloves during installation. Next, transfer the dimensions of the panel into the foams and add one inch to each side for a snuggled fit. Cut the foam and prepare panels for insulation. USing pencil, vertically divide the panels into two equal boxes. Find the center of each box and add a mark there. Add adhesives and tape half of a retainer clip into each of the adhesive strips and then tuck the foam into the panel. You will have to allow the retainers to pierce through the foam and then attach the other halves of the retainers. Follow this exact procedure for all panels. In the end, inspect each panel to be sure that the foams are secured nicely.
