4 Reasons Insulated Garage Doors Are the Smart Choice

Door Pros Has Options to Improve Your Space

At Door Pros, we love the feeling we get when we see the incredible difference a new garage door can make on a home’s curb appeal and resale value. (Homeowners can recoup 74 percent of a new garage door when they sell their homes.) But what makes us happiest is our satisfied customers’ smiling faces.

These days many of our customers are choosing our custom garage doors for their Palm Desert or nearby homes. They also are interested in insulated garage doors because these doors can significantly improve the energy efficiency of their homes.

Here are just some of the reasons a new insulated garage door could make sense for your home:

  1. Energy savings: Did you know that garages have different building standards because they aren’t considered living space? That means they often have more gaps and air leaks. So, if your garage door is not insulated, this allows even more cold or hot air to seep into your garage. If your garage is attached to your home and/or you have living quarters above your garage, this air can compromise the energy efficiency of the rest of your home. You can save energy with an insulated garage door.
  2. Durability: Insulated garage doors are stronger because they are built differently than single layer doors. Added durability helps your garage door stand up to the rigors of busy family life. We have lightweight, energy-efficient doors made with steel or aluminum frames. These frames are filled with insulation that is housed between single or dual steel panels. This construction makes it harder for vehicles and other items to dent them. Dented doors can lower the value of your home.
  3. Less noise: Insulated doors help mute noise in your garage. They also make less noise than uninsulated garage doors. Whether it’s insulated or not insulated, if your door is making excessive noise, the experts at Door Pros can perform maintenance to silence noisy hinges, springs, tracks, roller bearings and more.
  4. Added protection: An insulated door can protect your vehicle from extreme temperatures. This can improve the lifespan of your vehicle. It can also protect other items in your garage, including paint, fertilizers, motor oil and cleaning supplies, from extreme temperatures.
