    After some advice for my garage.

    It's cold. bloody cold! not helped by the fact I could put my hand through the gaps around the up and over door!!

    Now, plans are afoot to:
    a) in the short term, make a new door that fits the gap.
    b) in the long term we're extending so it'll be replaced with a new one anyway.

    Plan "a" is still a couple of months off as we've some other building works going on around our house which means the summer house is in the garage - until that's out, the door is staying as it is.

    So, colder months are looming and I need a bit of a solution.
    Thick Curtain?
    Sheet Insulation (pricey)
    Rockwall rolled out and stapled to ceiling rafters?

    I don't really use the up and over door too often but I do use it every now and then so don't want to do anything that's too much of a pain in the arse to remove when required.

    any thoughts?

    Insulation retains heat , there is none in a garage .

    true, ok perhaps not "insulate" maybe "draught exclude" was more apt

    Post photos. If the gaps are that big you can get your hand through, maybe some strips of wood to narrow the gap would be a good start.
