I used Owens Corning Garage Door Insulation on my two car garage door.
The door does not have built-in sections to place the insulation in.
After discussions with Owens Corning technical support staff it was suggested to use Bilt R Tape to hold the insulation in. The tape has a temperature range from -40 degrees to 160 degrees per Ownens Corning technical support.
Our home is in Texas where summer temperatures can easily rise to 100 degrees. We installed the product in March 2019 and are waiting to see how effective the tape will be.
When installing faced insulation in buildings it is very important to eliminate any gaps or breaks in the facing of the insulation.
Insulation comes in two forms; with facing or without facing. Tape is used with insulation that is faced. The facing material is sturdy, and is glued to one side of the insulation. Owens sealing tape is formulated to adhere to the facing of the insulation.
If there are any breaks or gaps in the insulation use the Owens Sealing tape to patch the opening in the insulation. For best insulation results recommend that all gaps and breaks in the insulation facing be taped.
When the insulation is stabled attached by stapling on a 2 x 4 or 6 Owens tape works well for sealing over where the insulation joints meet. .
Do not use duct tape or other tapes since they are not be compatible for adhering to insulation facing. Contact Insulation manufactures for best practices in applying faced insulation and recommendations for the use of sealing tapes .
