When it comes to your home or office building, we know that insulation is a necessary consideration. To some degree, we all know the benefits and necessity of a well-insulated building. And while that may conjure up thoughts of insulated walls, insulated attic spaces, and so on, one thing that people don’t always consider is an insulated garage door.
Pros and Cons of Insulated Garage Doors
While we certainly understand the desire to focus on insulating your home’s interior, windows, etc., the benefits of an insulated garage door are worth considering, especially if your garage is attached to your home.
In most cases, we know the only reason a homeowner might not consider an insulated garage door is cost. And admittedly, the upfront cost will be higher than an uninsulated door, but the long-term benefits, and cost, might prove a greater deal.
First off, with an insulated garage door, you will save money on keeping your garage a comfortable temperature. An insulated door will reduce your need to heat or cool your garage, and if it’s an attached garage, that will affect the rest of the house too.
Additionally, the extra layers within an insulated door mean that door will be more durable and more resistant to damage, meaning you just may be able to avoid some repair costs down the road. Insulated garage doors are going to be harder to break or lift, providing some extra security and peace of mind. They’re quieter too, which might be a huge plus depending on how much time you plan to spend in your garage.
