Top Considerations When Choosing a Garage Door

Windows come in a wide variety of decorative insert options. When choosing the type of inserts for your home, its best to look at your house from a distance and check out the way your homes trim and windows are shaped. Some examples are a half circle shape, some may be square, others may have vertical grooves, etc. Identifying what is present on your house will better help you choose the design you want to go with on your new door.
Insulation added to the windows can differ, but the overall performance of R-value through insulated windows make little difference. Glass unfortunately is the worst insulator. It can be insulated at a small cost, but depending on your needs you may choose to spend the money elsewhere on your door.
Steel back doors can range from a 6.3 r value up to a 20 r value and Ranging in thicknesses from 1 5/16″ to 3 1/2″. Steel back doors have two different options for the type of material in each panel; Polystyrene and polyurethane.
Polystyrene insulated steel back panels provide an r value of 6.3 for the 1 5/16″ thick models, and 9.0 for the 2″ thick models. The most commonly bought steel back door in the industry is the 2″ thick door with an r value of 9.0. This is sufficient enough to insulate your garage, as long as the walls themselves are insulated.
Polyurethane insulated steel back panels provide an r value of 12.9 for the 1 5/16″ thick models, and 18.2 for the 2″ thick models. These models take an extra week to come in, but are the stoutest doors made in the industry.
Either steel back option you choose will provide enough insulation to provide a definite temperature change inside your garage. Both options come with a lifetime limited warranty on the doors themselves. These doors are durable and can withstand the wear and tear of dogs and kids. Not to mention they can also take a beating from high winds, are quieter than one and two layer doors, and provide a “solid wall” feel to your garage space.
