Insulated Garage Doors vs. Non-Insulated Garage Doors

There are many things to consider when choosing a new garage door.  Today we will focus on some benefits of insulated garage doors vs. non-insulated doors.  Steel insulated doors are constructed with an exterior skin made of steel, a layer of insulation, and then either no backing (2-layer) or backed with vinyl or steel (3-layer).  The 2-layer doors offer a bit more stability over that of a non-insulated door, and the 3-layer models are not only more durable, they offer more R-value (the measure of insulation’s resistance to heat flow; the higher the number the greater the resistance to heat flow).  3-layer doors are generally constructed of materials that are more durable and the higher R-value helps boost the energy-efficiency of your home.  As an added bonus, the 3-layer doors are also considerably quieter than the 1 or 2-layer doors as well.  So, whenever you find yourself in the market for a new garage door, Walker Garage Door can help you to make the best decision based upon your needs.
