Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Are the fiberglass garage door insulation kits formaldehyde free? Even though they are rated indoor air quality certified does that mean they are completely formaldehyde free?
A: Yes. Our Fiberglass Garage Door Insulation kits are 100% Formaldehyde free and use 85% Recycled content.
Q: Will the additional weight of the fiberglass garage door insulation kits require the garage door lift springs to be adjusted?
A: Maybe. Each kit add approximately 11-lbs. to the door. Depending on the quality, age and maintenance of your garage door lift springs will determine if you need to do any adjustments to them. It is recommended a Professional Garage Door technician do any adjustments to you garage door if needed.
Q: How are the retainer clips used, I can't see how they attach to anything?
A: The retainer clips are used to cover the exposed left or right vertical edges of the recycled fiberglass insulation kits and holds the material flush with the outside frame edge of the door to give the installation a professionally finished look. The retainer clips are placed inside the top and bottom horizontal frame edges of the door panel where there is no cavity to tuck the fiberglass insulation into. The fiberglass insulation pushes outward on the retainer clip causing a "Friction Fit" and retainer clips basically hold them self in place.
Q: Will your product continue
to stay in place and smooth for years to come? I have (2) 10 X 12
commercial doors on my shop, and (1) 9x7 residential. I have a 2 car 18x7
and 1 car 9x7 on my attached garage. Which kits and quantity do you
recommend for my doors?
A: First, yes, the reinforced vinyl mesh on the fiberglass
insulation product allows the material to tuck inside the door frame rails to
hold itself in place, this is called a “friction fit”. As an example, we
have (2) 10’W x 12’H bay doors at our shop (picture attached), that have had
the fiberglass insulation on them for over 4-years now, with no problems.
Kits you will need are; (2) commercial kits, (1) for each 10’W x
12’H commercial door. The 9’W x 7’H doors will need (1) residential kit
per door, the 18’W x 7’H door will need (2) residential kits, total of (4)
Determine how many retainer clips you will need, that is where
you have a vertical edge you can’t tuck the insulation behind because it is a
boxed beam. Each residential kit comes with (6) clips, none with the
commercial kit. You can purchase the clips separately if you need more.

"I installed the Fiberglass Insulation Kits and just wanted to comment on how easy they went in and how well they work. I did my double door, 7' high by 16' wide with (16) panels, in about one hour without trying hard. Looks great, the video made it a snap. the door is now virtually silent while opening and my noisy street is a thing of the past. My father in law was here and said he wished he used these kits instead of the Panel Foam." Tim S., NY
"We recently purchased tow of the Fiberglass Insulation Kits and they worked great! Our garage here in Florida now stays fairly constant inside without feeling the summer sun's heat coming through the doors even up to a couple of feet away inside. The door is now very quiet when opening and closing. The installation is very simple and looks professional with the retainer clips." Duane P., FL
"I installed the Fiberglass Insulation Kits on my double door and it was a breeze. I did it in no time, it was very simple and straight forward. I had no miss cuts or difficult tasks, just measure, cut and install. I have hurricane braces on my door here in Florida and I was able to slide the material in place behind the braces without taking them off, saved a lot of time and effort. I am very pleased with the results and highly recommend this product!" Denny G., FL
"Thank you! You have a great company and should the need arise, I look forward to doing business with your company in the future." Michael B., CA
"Thanks again, and BTW, This is a Great product! I was very impressed by how easily your kits were installed, I did an 8' x 16', an 8' x 18' and an 8' x 9' door all in one day and I didn't even try to break any speed records doing them. Being that I live in Florida, with the hurricane braces on the doors, which act to hold the material in very securely and looks great. Randy F., FL
"I am very pleased with the product. I was able to trim it out around my top windows using only my cutter and white tape. The temperature in my garage is now staying around 54 - 56 degrees with the outside temperatures at 32 - 35 degrees and 2-sides of my garage are to the outside. You have a great product!"

"Very simple and easy to install. It took longer to clean the dirt and dust off the door than it did to install the insulation. The nice that about the fiberglass product is I didn't have to remove the hurricane braces, it just slid right behind the braces with no problem." Jeff R. TX
