Why Should I Insulate My Garage Door?

Our Neighborhood Garage Door Repair team is excited to help you with the tough decisions when it comes to your garage. Insulation isn’t always the first thing you think of when picturing your garage door, but it is a conversation that needs to be had. We hope that you’ll find this information informative and help make this decision an easy one.

Energy Efficiency

You’ll be happy to know that energy efficiency doesn’t start and stop with your appliances and light bulbs. Your garage door can be included in this awesome movement too. If you live in a place that has cold winters, insulation might keep you from wasting energy all season.

If you are going into your garage a lot, whether you keep tools in there or have a freezer you need to get to, you will be opening your door a lot. An insulated door will keep you from losing all the heat or A/C every time you open your home’s door. This will keep your central heat and air from working overtime to control the temperature in your home.


Even though energy is important, it’s not the only benefit of having an insulated door. Your door will be more durable the more insulated that it is. Rough elements can take a toll on garage doors and adding layers can be a great choice for added durability.

Garage doors are not always cheap to replace and sometimes replacing isn’t an option. Durability is so important in the long run. We want you to be happy and confident with the door you choose.

Above Garage Apartments

If you have a room that is above your garage, an insulated door can be a quieter option for you. The insulation will actually absorb the vibration and quiets the door as it opens and closes. The door is also heavier and doesn’t shake on the track as much as a door that is hollow.

Noise won’t be the only thing that is helped with an insulated garage door. The insulated door can also help make sure the temperature is more controlled in the above garage apartments. This can help save on electricity costs in the cold and very hot months.

Insulation Value

The value of insulation is referred to as R-value. This is the measure of thermal resistance that the garage door has. The higher R-value you have, the more insulation the door has, making less heat allowed to pass through.

When you move up from single to double and triple layers, the overall quality and R-value increase. You might opt for a higher value if your garage is attached to your home, you work in the garage a lot, or you store things that need to have a more controlled temperature. This will help with the efficiency of your garage and keep air from escaping when you are going in and out of your home and into the garage.

We Look Forward To Hearing From You

Our team at Neighborhood Garage Door Repair is always here for you, regardless of your questions. We want you to be confident in all the decisions that you make regarding your garage door. If you need a professional to come out and see what you need or have a few questions that can be answered over the phone, we are here for you.

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
