Different materials are suitable for a wide variety of needs. For example, steel doors should be preferred in high crime rate areas or where security is of prime importance. These regions also warrant that homeowners install additional security features with the door. Automatic closure after 10 seconds or finger print security is the right way to go.
Wooden garage doors, on the other hand, are best suited for stylish homes. These add a charm to the home’s exterior. These graceful doors can be ordered in various wood types including Cherry, hardwood, Oak etc. Also, all the security features that come with steel doors can be added to these as well. But they are high on maintenance. These doors need annual varnish and paint application. Polishing should be done regularly to maintain shine and grace for longer periods.
Aluminum Doors are light weight alternatives to the steel doors. This metal eliminates the chances of rust all together. Being light weight, these can be paired with the low power openers that do not consume much energy. Insulation is best applied to the hollow aluminum panels using polyurethane foam.
In general, most of these materials are available in NON-INSULATED, SEMI-INSULATED or DOUBLE INSULATED and are 1’3/8” or 2” thick:
NON-INSULATED DOORS features one layer of material.
SEMI-INSULATED DOORS are made of one layer of material with a polystyrene backing, with a R-value (i.e. insulation rate) varying between 4 and 7.
DOUBLE INSULATED DOORS are made of POLYSTYRENE insulation layer sandwiched
Polyurethane insulation is the ultimate standard in the garage insulation. This can be the right tool in saving huge HVAC costs. Home utility bills are going to spiral downwards with low burden on the home HVAC system.
DOUBLE INSULATED DOORS are also made of POLYURETHANE INSULATION (foam-injected)
