What Type of Insulation is Best for Me?
One of the main reasons we do free estimates is to determine the best door to maximize efficiency in your home. By picking the right insulation you can save hundreds of dollars on your utility bills. All insulation has a rating, this rating is called R-Value. R-Value determines the products resistance to heat and cold. Garage door R-Values typically range on the low end around 6 all the way up to 18. It is important to keep in mind that a door that has 6-8 R-Value compared to a door that is 16-18 R-Value only has a difference of roughly 5% in heat/cold reduction. So if you are not actively heating or cooling your garage, it is probably not very cost effective to go for a high R-Value door. All of your Insulation questions and more can be easily answered during one of your free estimates.
