Insulate your Garage Door with old Boxes

If you do not have an insulated garage door you can insulate it with cardboard, which is especially useful during the winter, especially if your garage is connected to your house.

1) Find larger cardboard boxes and cut them to size to fit in the spaces in your garage door.

2) Use some adhesive spray to stick the cardboard to the inside of the garage door.

3) Suggestion: You can use two or three layers of cardboard for more insulation, but any more than 3 layers may add too much weight to your garage door and it could put extra stress on the motor if you have an automatic garage door opener.

4) Suggestion: If you wish you can even put a coat of paint on the cardboard to make it look a little nicer. Use expandable foam to cover any areas you can not cover with cardboard.
