Insulation for Your Garage Door

As it gets colder and you think of ways to save at home, insulation probably comes to mind. The attic is one obvious place to insulate, but did you know you can buy insulated garage doors?

Garage doors with insulation can not only help you maximize energy efficiency and save on your bills but also help better protect your garage interior from the elements and provide soundproofing.

Types of Garage Door Insulation

Two common types of insulation for garage doors include polyurethane (spray foam) and polystyrene (rigid foam). Construction includes double and triple layer (sandwich). Double-layer doors are energy-efficient, with a layer of insulation, while sandwich garage doors have insulation between two layers—typically steel. Overhead Door’s collection of doors have both polyurethane and polystyrene insulation of varying R-values (and additional options).

  • Durafirm Collection® vinyl-clad doors (maximum R-value of 11.75)
  • Carriage House Collection (maximum R-value of 10)
  • Impression Collection® (maximum R-value of 7.6)
  • Thermacore® Collection (maximum R-value of 17.50)
  • Traditional Wood Collection (maximum R-value of 4.75)
  • Traditional Steel Collection (maximum R-value of 9.8)
  • Courtyard Collection®

Many of these garage doors also have insulated glass window options for even higher energy efficiency.

Still trying to decide if you should install a door with insulation? If your garage is attached to the house, selecting a door that’s insulated to help protect against both temperature and noise can be a good idea. Unheated detached garages may not need an insulated garage door.
