Hi, this is Jake with Specialized Garage Doors, and we're going to show you how to insulate your garage door. So, to install insulation in your garage door, first thing you're going to want to do is go ahead and cut down your insulation pieces to the right width to fit in the opening there. You gotta double check, before you do that, double check that you're at the right height of piece of insulation too, so, for example, this is a twenty-one inch section. There's eighteen inch sections, twenty-four inch sections, so make sure you get the right width of insulation for your panel. So, once you get it cut down, then you just go ahead and start with the bottom, get that all the way down in the groove there. You want to bend this middle toward you and the top down to give you enough room to tuck it under this lip. So, just go and just pick and end to start with, and just get it going, once you're past half-way, you've gotta finish it off. It's not an easy thing to get to fit. To finish it off, so that you're not left with just a rough cut visible, you take your trims, cut them down to just fitting in underneath the metal here, and underneath here, so you may have to trim them to size. Then, go ahead and start at one end, put it down tight, and then that finishes the edge so you're not left with a rough cut there, and that's how you install your trim pieces. Once you get those in, you're done. Again, that was Jake with Specialized Garage Doors, and we've just shown you how to insulate your garage door panels.
