3 Ways to Improve Your Garage Door Insulation

Most garages are sensitive to outdoor temperature changes. They're hot in summer and cold in winter. By improving your garage door's insulation, you can prevent outdoor temperature extremes from making your garage an uncomfortable place to get work done. There are many ways you can do this.

1. Buy and Install a Garage Door Insulation Kit.

Garage door insulation kits are sold in home improvement stores, hardware stores, and online. Measure your garage door before making your purchase to ensure the kit you buy is compatible.

Kits can be installed by homeowners or garage door contractors. If you don't feel up to the task of installing your own garage door insulation, contact a garage door contractor in your area for help.  

2. Weatherstrip the Garage Door. 

By their very nature, garage doors don't fit tightly against the door frame. When you shut your garage door and stand in your garage in the dark, you'll be able to see daylight shining through a gap between the door and the wall. You can narrow that gap with weatherstripping. Follow the instructions to install properly, or contact a contractor to get help. When cutting down weatherstripping, measure twice and cut once to ensure a good fit.  

3. Install a Thermacore Garage Door. 

All modern garage doors sold by Overhead Door Company of Wilmington have insulating properties, but some doors offer superior insulation. The best way to improve energy efficiency in your garage is to install a Thermacore insulated garage door. These insulated steel doors provide maximum comfort and efficiency. They're available in a range of styles and colors to improve your home's curb appeal.

We recommend this type of garage door if you use your garage as a workshop or as a rehearsal space for your band. Thermacore doors are most effective if your garage is fully finished and insulated. If your garage is unfinished, consider upgrading your garage with insulation and drywall.
