Adding an Extra Room
Insulation 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
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!
