insulating the garage door

Anyone have advice on this issue? Owens Corning makes a kit (Lowe's now leading the price @ $54) with an R-8 value, but Lowe's / Home Depot / Ace do not stock it, so I'll have to mail order. I really want to do this while the house is mine.

I've read 100 opinions online. Some people say use rigid foam or the metallic heat shield stuff, but you only get an R of about 3-4 with those methods. I'm wondering if I could just buy a few rolls of insulation with a backing, cut to size, and somehow affix it to the door.

Thoughts? Help?

Thanks!

I have installed these kits before.... they work good if your door faces south or west.

Check your local garage door companys and see if they have one you can buy without having to mail order one for your needs.

the 1.5 - 2 inch foam board with the foil on it works just about as good as the kits.
I used liquid nail to addhear it.
