Your garage door is constantly opening and closing throughout the day, which leads to a rush of cold air. Gaps and cracks can also allow cold air into your home. Adding insulation to your garage door erases those issues by providing a level of temperature control you need for your home.

Insulation Options for Garage Doors
Polystyrene sheet insulation is an option that comes from sheets of insulation that is put in between openings and enclosed between front and back panels. Polyurethane foamed-in-place insulation provides better insulation than polystyrene insulation. With this option, we inject the polyurethane into the door. This allows for all of the dead space to be filled while providing your door with a higher R value. The higher the R-value, the higher the resistance that material has to heat flow. Higher R-values also contribute to a quieter garage and home.
