What Are Insulated Garage Doors?
An insulated garage door includes one or more layers of insulation material inserted between the layers of the garage door panels. The number of insulation layers that can be added to a door depends on the amount of space between the door’s panels. Most doors can at least hold one layer. Some can accommodate three layers of insulation. Our professional installers can easily determine the ideal amount of insulation for your garage door and make recommendations accordingly.
Benefits of Insulated Garage Doors:
- Improved energy efficiency
- Noise reduction
- Added durability
- Increased home value

How are glass garage doors insulated?
In order to not alter the appearance of the panels in full-view glass garage doors, some glass doors have insulation added directly into the door frame. Other insulated glass doors are made of multiple layers of glass that have gas or air between them. They can also include a low-e coating that reflects heat back into the garage.
What is R-Value?
R-value refers to how well a material resists heat flow. For garage doors, this means the higher the R-value, the better! The higher the R-value, the more energy-efficient the garage door will be.
