Question DetailsAsked on 2/15/2018

insulating garage that already has drywall and some insulation in the wall and ceiling

The ceiling is below my living room/dining room area and one side wall goes into my laundry to den area. I was considering insulation options that would hopefully not require me to pull down all the drywall and ceiling and reinstall insulation if I can avoid it. Could I use R board or are there other options? What would be most cost effective?

Second to this is my garage door leading into the house, the original door is from 1974 so I suspect it is not the best insulation. What would you recommend as a replacement and what other steps do I need to take to insulate in teh door area.

Lastly, in the laundry area the back wall is cinder block, so I suspect this is a heat loss zone. I don't think there is enough space to frame the wall since that is where the washer dryer and utility sink sit and the exit door into the garage won't leave much space to build out a back wall. Again, would R board work well in this case?

Any other tips or areas I should look into

Thanks for all the advice!
