While you may have researched and considered the material and style of your new garage door, you should also examine if you want an insulated garage door as well. Garage doors that are insulated add additional layers of protection from the temperature fluctuations outside. Insulated garage doors are another barrier to keep out the hot or cold.
First and foremost, insulated doors are a top way to keep your garage comfortable, especially if you use this space as an extension of your home. Whether you have a workout area in your garage, hangout space for entertaining or office area to work, being comfortable is important. Your garage is a tightly sealed space that is typically not huge, so the added benefit of the insulated garage door will be felt by anyone who spends time in the spot. When you are renovating your garage or needing to update your door, consider an insulated version for a better space.
The amount of layers that are part of your garage door are a factor in if your door is insulated or not. If you have a single layer of material, then you do not have an insulated garage door. At Affordable Garage Door, we work with the Clopay brand, and the Value Series is a single-layer but still heavy-duty steel door. While it is not insulated, you can still select panel designs, windows and colors. Double layers and triple layers provide a level of insulation. The material of your garage door can also help. Steel continues to be a durable and low-maintenance option for insulation.
Beyond temperature control, there are additional benefits of having an insulated garage door. The controlled temperature will also keep your home warmer and cut down on leaks into your home. This could save you money on your utility bills. You may notice less noise in your garage door space as insulation will absorb the sounds better and can be quieter when they are in operation as they are more substantial.
The additional layers can also boost the sturdiness of your garage door. It can stand up better to hits from basketballs, footballs, bikes or weather-related issues. The stronger material will help it last longer. Having better temperature control of the air within your garage can also cut down on issues with your door’s components, such as erosion of lubricating materials and warping of metal components. Having an updated garage door will just add to your home’s overall look and bring value to your property. With an insulated door, you can add even more to the ROI of this home improvement project.
