Eco-Friendly Garage Doors

In today’s world a lot of people are becoming more and more aware of the environmental issues that are being placed upon our planet. A lot more people are trying to go “green” to help to protect this great planet and keep its environment cleaner. So just in case you were thinking about your garage door and wondering if a garage door can be “green”, the answer to that is yes it can be.

There are three big factors that will contribute to your garage doors environmental friendliness. Keep these factors in mind when choosing a garage door:

  1. The materials used while manufacturing the door
  2. The sustainability of the doors manufacturing process
  3. The energy efficiency and insulation of the garage door

The Manufacturing Materials

In order for a garage door to be eco-friendly it must be made using recyclable materials. So for example the aluminum used to make the door is is completely recyclable, but the steel that is used is only 25% recyclable.

A garage door has a life expectancy of about 25 years, that means that there is less of a need for maintenance which in turn means that there are fewer parts and materials being used as well. So therefore there are fewer doors being made and a lesser amount of material being used to make the doors. With the door being made completely out of steel and aluminum, that means that there were no trees cut down to produce these garage doors.

The Process Of The Door Manufacturing

During the manufacturing of the garage doors any of the unused metal, cardboard or polystyrene that is left over is then recycled. The process of making the garage door is actually very energy efficient. They take good care to make sure to not misuse any of the energy or cause any unnecessary energy wastage.

Energy Efficiency

Energy efficiency is a very important factor to conscious buyers when they are looking at new garage doors. People want to know that their heated garage is going to hold the heat in the winter, and that their air conditioned garage is going to stay cool in the summer time.

The polyurethane that is injected into the overhead garage doors will provide an R-value of about 12-18. This will help to maintain the eco-friendliness of the door. This R-value is better compared to some other doors that use a polystyrene foam core to insulate.

Here are a few more ways to help and improve the product’s energy efficiency:

  • Triple contact interlocking
  • Flexible u-shaped bottom weather stripping
  • Sealed thermo pane windows
  • Double tip ThermaBlok Frame weather stripping

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
