My three garage doors were not insulated. Never a problem until last year when I converted bay 3 into the Man Cave wood shop and started spending much time out here. I don’t even remember what the back porch looks like. My dogs miss me terribly. They bark at me before they remember me.
I went to the BORG and the BBRG looking for garage door insulation whatever. They had some Owens Corning bag of flimsy, etc. No thanks. I called my garage door supplier/installer to see how much the real insulated panels cost. Answer: They are so proud of them that I better let them keep them.
So I get on the internet and find the Insulfoam site. Made in the USA. Looks great. But WAIT ! They say they are available at Lowe’s and Home Depot. I call both stores and they’ve never heard of them. I call the company and talk with the lady. She tells me they will be less expensive from Lowe’s than directly from them. Okay, so I go back online and find them at Lowe’s website. 4.6 stars !? 103 reviews !? 94 would recommend to a friend !? SOLD to the man with a card in his hand. I buy one door’s worth (a single kit). I got it in three days.
I install it in less than 30 minutes. Super. Just what it needs to be. And I’d pay more for the same thing if I had to. I love the harder textured laminated surface on the exposed side. It looks almost “factory”.
I ordered the other two kits.
Some specifics: I used the table saw to make perfect cuts. Turn the laminate side down and it is perfect. Save the extra slices to back fill the edges. No tape or adhesive required.
A wonderful product. Nearly no weight added to the garage door. Maybe 10 pounds (total per door) is a good guess. Cost is $54.97 per kit (8 sheets) that will cover up to a 9’ wide by 7’ tall single garage door.
I do recommend this product. I will be installing these for customers now that I know about it. This is right there with water softeners, pool ionizers and UVC light in the HVAC A-frame. Just plain a good idea.
Thanks for stopping in.
