Insulating garage doors

Post by oberlez » Thu Oct 04, 2018 9:29 pm

What is the best way to insulate garage doors? A lot of people use foam board from what im seeing online. Is this the best way? If so what type of foam board should i go with (expanded polystyrene, extruded polystyrene, or polyiso)?

I would not waste your time with polyiso. Either of the others would be fine.
I have never done this myself but you should be able to use a rigid foam glue to install it. I would then also cover it with a thin plywood or something to protect it.

I would use either XPS or EPS foam and some wall paneling to cover.
