Your garage door is one of the largest exterior parts of your home. You insulate your walls, your attic and your windows – why would you not consider an insulated garage door? More than just being a focal point of the exterior of your home, your garage door is a place to protect your vehicles, entertain guests, do your laundry and many other things. In short, your garage has become another living space.
An insulated door is a “sandwich” of two layers of steel with a layer of insulation between each piece for a strong yet lightweight garage door.
With an R-Value of up to 20.4, an insulated garage door can provide year-round comfort and improved energy efficiency.
- Energy Efficient – Insulated garage doors help keep your garage cooler, which helps keep your home cooler. This can keep energy costs down and save you money.
- Attractiveness – Insulated doors tend to look sturdier and more attractive than their non-insulated counterparts.
- Stronger – Insulation adds rigidity to the door panels, helping them withstand certain impacts, as well as the stress of constant raising and lowering. They’re also more resistant to dents and dings.
- Quieter – Insulated garage doors are simply quieter. Just shake a non-insulated garage door and then an Insulated Garage Door and you’ll hear a big difference in noise levels. This means that common occurrences, such as a ball hitting the garage door, will be uncommonly quiet with an insulated garage door
All of these factors combined add to the value and curb appeal of your home. Insulated garage doors are worth the investment for the savings on energy bills and the added value to your home.
