The amount of insulation you need in your garage door depends on your region. Learn about the benefits of an insulated garage door and how to select the right degree of insulation to best suit your needs.

The amount of insulation you need in your garage door depends on your region. Is your climate typically cold, hot, or somewhere in-between? With the garage usually being the primary entrance to the home and with living space often above or beside it, it’s best to keep the temperature in the garage as comfortable as possible. This is especially true in very cold regions. You can choose garage doors with varying degrees of insulation to best suit your needs.

The effectiveness of the insulation is expressed as an R-value. The higher the R-value, the better the insulation in the door. For instance, Model 8300 and 8500 doors from Wayne Dalton offer high levels of insulation against extreme temperatures and have an R-value up to 16.22.

Another point to consider is that an insulated door is generally quieter and has a more attractive interior than a non-insulated door.
