If you need a new garage door for your home, you may be wondering about whether to go with uninsulated or insulated garage doors. To be the happiest with your decision, it is important to have realistic expectations. Here are a few things you need to know about insulated garage doors that can help you decide if this is the best option for you.
Will the insulation be enough to make a difference in the temperature of your garage? The answer to that depends on the R-value of the garage doors you choose as well as the overall insulation in the garage. If your garage has poor insulation to begin with, insulated garage doors aren’t going to make a huge impact. This is particularly true if it is a detached garage with all four sides as exterior walls. On the other hand, if one, two or even all three of the other walls are shared with an interior room, taking care of increasing insulation by putting in insulated garage doors makes a lot of sense.
Another benefit to consider regarding insulated garage doors is that they don’t just insulate against heat transfer. They also insulated against sounds. This can make your home quieter for one thing. In addition, you’ll hear less noise when the door is opened and closed and insulated garage doors absorb some of the vibration involved with movement. Many people believe that insulated garage doors are more attractive as well. Finally, insulated garage doors are more durable.
