Why you should choose an insulated garage door

Your garage door serves many different functions in your home. It’s one of the largest parts of the facade of your house. It provides an extra layer of security to prevent break-ins. It also serves to protect your home’s interior against the elements.

Neighborhood Garage Door Service of Phoenix, AZ has the information you need to choose the best overhead door for your home. This includes the reasons you should choose an insulated garage door.

Reducing Noise

An insulated garage door reduces noise from both the outside and inside. Insulated doors have extra layers of steel and either polystyrene or polyurethane foam. These absorb sound, preventing as much from getting inside your garage, and therefore your home. Extra racket from loud cars driving by, lawn equipment, and even noisy neighbors can be significantly reduced.

Non-insulated doors also tend to make more noise on their own. They are less substantial and tend to rattle and creak more than insulated doors. The extra thickness of an insulated door makes it more solid and prevent the vibrations that cause so much noise during operation.

Extending Life of the Door

The greater density of an insulated garage door also adds to the lifespan of your door. The added steel and foam insulation help the door stand up to dings, dents, and breaks. The reduction of vibrations that we mentioned before also helps. The less vibration and rattling there is, the sturdier the various parts like your rollers and tracks will remain.

This will translate to fewer repairs. As a result, the overall lifetime cost of your overhead will be reduced. Not to mention the extra life of your door will mean greater home improvement savings over the long haul. The added cost of upgrading to an insulated door will more than pay for itself over time.

Protection from the Elements


Your insulated garage door will also act as a buffer zone for your home. Many commercial buildings take advantage of this idea. When you walk into a store or other business, you’ve probably noticed that there are two sets of doors with a vestibule area in between.

These vestibules are usually kept at a temperature somewhere between the outside temperature and the inside temperature. This gives air temperature a transitional zone to keep the inside temperature stable. It also acts as a barrier against wind that blows in outside air. This buffer system won’t work, however, if the air in the garage can’t maintain target temperature because of poor insulation. This is why an insulated door is so important.

Lower Power Costs


The buffer zone effect will provide a great savings on your power bill. By removing stress on your heating or cooling system in your home, they will have to work less, requiring less energy. Over the life of the door, this can add up significantly. This also helps make the case for investing the extra initial cost for an insulated door.

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.
