Garage Door Weatherseal: Keep the Cold Out!

Written by Nick McGregor. Posted in Insulate Your Garage Door in Plano, TX, Plano, TX, Insulated Garage Door, Posts for Garage Doors & Openers in Plano, TX

Accents Doors with Windows

When we got a call from a customer in Plano about there being an opening at the bottom of one of our previous customers garage door, we knew right off the bat that there was a weatherseal problem. When we sent one of our senior techs out to his rescue we furthermore explained the benefits of replacing old weatherseal on the bottom of his garage door.

Weatherseal begins to shrink, crack, and no longer serve its’ primary function after a matter of only a few years in the extreme Texas heat.  He told the customer that with the winter months upon us it is more important than any other time of the year to have an accurately sealed garage door opening. This can be the transformation between 5 to 10 degrees in temperature in the garage- especially on windy days in the coldest months.  We quoted him a fair price and did the installation while we were already there since we carry the materials on all of our garage door service trucks. We were pleased to satisfy once again another client in the Plano, Texas area!

If you have questions about the benefits of replacing your bottom weatherseal on your garage door, please give us a call!  972-422-1695.

Garage Door Insulation: Is it worth it?

Adding an Extra Room

Cowboys Man CaveInsulation in a garage door in more important than some people may think.   A common misperception is that garages in Texas don’t need insulating.  Yes, it’s true that a majority of garage doors in the Northern US are insulated, and that a majority in the South are not.  But more and more customers are realizing the benefits of upgrading to insulated garage doors in Texas to help beat the heat in our brutal summers.  Don’t forget, if your attic is insulated, you can add a small air-conditioning unit and create another climate controlled room.  Converting garages into bedrooms, man-caves, and playrooms is more popular now than ever!


Garage Door Insulation

Insulated Panel

Insulation is key if you are looking for temperature control in your garage. A lot of people store things in their garages that need temperature control. The insulation that we provide, either our factory insulated or our double-back steel insulated, will be able to keep your garage at more manageable temperatures. The factory insulated door that we sell keeps your garage temperatures 5 to 10 degrees different than the weather outside. Our double-back steel door is able to keep it 10 to 15 degrees different than the weather outside.

Temperature is not the only reason for getting insulated garage doors, a lot of our customers get the double-back steel door to help with damage prevention to their doors. The double-back steel door is two pieces of steel with insulation sandwiched in between them. This creates a thicker barrier for the garage door itself. So people that live close to golf courses and things of that nature are able to protect their garage doors from so much damage. Insulated garage doors even help with hail storms that come through and tend to damage your garage door.

So when it comes down to whether or not you want to get insulation just remember these good tips on why insulation is a good option!
