Garage Door Models
All of our doors are sectional garage doors. These are the most common type of doors today. These doors have sections of panels that are connected by hinges. There are wheels and the end of the side of the panel, which roll along a vertical track on both sides of the garage door opening. The hinge that sits between the panelled sections bends over the track as it bends. When the door is open completely, it is parallel to the ceiling. When it is closed, it sits in line with the walls of the building. These types of overhead doors use springs that are under high tension and attached to cables to operate the door and hold it in place when it is open halfway.
Garage doors come in insulated and non-insulated models.
Insulated garage doors are typically made out of two layers of steel with insulation between the layers. These doors are thicker and stronger than a door that is not insulated. You can choose how much insulation you want the door to have.
Non-insulated doors only have one layer of material, and the back of the door is open. These doors are thinner and better suited for climates that are constantly warm. A non-insulated door will not protect your garage from extreme heat or cold.
Garage Door Designs
Garage doors are often made from metal, steel, and wood. Metal doors give your home a more industrial look while being stylish. Wood doors are elegant and often found in carriage houses. Steel doors are relatively low maintenance and always in fashion. They are sturdy and can be customized in any way that suits your style. Some doors look better with the style of your house and personal preference matters. We have many different door designs available to meet any preference you have.
Garage Door R-value
The R-value of a garage door represents how much of the outside temperature your garage door allows to leak through it. This is called its thermal efficiency. When a garage door has a high R-value, it has a lot of insulation. This allows it to keep the outside temperature on the outside. You will see the R-value of a garage door range from 0 to high in the teens. The style of the door can impact the R-value. A door with a higher R-value can help save you money on energy costs.
Reason to Replace Garage Doors
There are a number of reasons why you may want to consider replacing your garage doors.
One of the top reasons you may want to replace your garage doors is because of their current appearance. A new garage door can increase the value of your house.

If you install a garage door that has more insulation, it can help control the hot and cold air that comes into your garage. If your current garage is damaged with cracks or tears, you should probably consider replacing your garage door. If the tracks on your garage door are bent or broken, you should install a new one.
