How To Insulate Your Garage Door For Winter

As winter encroaches and temperatures drop, the warmth of your garage space disappears, and everything within begins to freeze. At this time of year, many homeowners start considering insulated garage doors to remedy this uncomfortable problem.

WM Garage Doors takes you through the garage insulation options that make your space more hospitable and useful.

Why Insulate A Garage?

Garage door insulation is desirable because it transforms the interior area into an area you can use, which is particularly important if you regularly or occasionally conduct DIY or car maintenance out of freezing winds and the rain or snow.

However, this is not the only reason to consider insulated garage doors. If you store paint, solvents, or other liquids in your garage, these are prone to freezing, ruining the product, or splitting the container. Furthermore, your car’s interior is warmer when you come to use it.

Insulated garage doors also reduce the noise created by children playing outside and that caused by traffic. Two more highly beneficial reasons include improved durability and reduced energy bills as less heat escapes through the panels.

Insulated Garage Door Options

Sealed garage doors have a high-grade weather-tight seal that keeps the cold and drafts outside. The CFC-free insulated panels, also called double-skinned or twin-walled aluminium, prevent heat loss through the door’s panels.

Sectional and insulated roller garage doors are a popular choice because they are typically automated with a motor and remote control. Traditional up-and-over and side-hinged insulated garage doors are the solutions for homeowners who wish to retain the original or period-look of their property but benefit from a warm garage interior.

WM Garage Doors supplies and installs insulated garage doors made by top manufacturers, including SWS, Hörmann, and Select. Contact our team today.
