It's that time of year! To remember all the projects you meant to do, but only remember once it's too cold outside! I do it too!
A Quick DIY project, that can easily be done inside your garage, is to insulate the garage doors. It took about an hour for me to do my nice old garage doors, but was a lot cheaper than buying new ones. And still looks pretty good too!
Here's the kit I bought from Lowe's that worked out for me, $60 per door and the instructions are pretty straight forward. Be prepared to clean up foam from everywhere when you're done!
Here's a look at one door completed and one left to go:
And the finished product: (I think it turned out looking pretty good for some doors that are decades old. It seems to have helped with the cold in the garage as well)
The backs of the foam have some lines scored in them to allow you to bend them in place. You'll have to cut thinner pieces to slide into edges of the door as well which is what causes the mess. A longer, sharp knife makes it easier to cut, but a box cutter will work just fine.

"John is genuinely kind individual. He was first a neighbor, a friend, then my Realtor for the selling of our house in Ft Worth Tx. He is extremely knowledgeable and experienced in the realty business. His advices were in the interest of selling my house as quick as possible. He was very attentive to my needs. He even bought front and back door entry mats while we were out of state. Yes, we were trying to sell our house via long distance. John Brooks was very helpful during the whole process. He got the job done quick. You won't be disappointed if you have him on your side. I usually don't write reviews, but JB is very special guy that i would spend a few minutes to drop a few lines well worth for what he has done for us. Thank you John. You are the best!"
