Choosing a Garage Door


 
Home Improvement

With today's high energy costs, garage door insulation is at least as valuable as anywhere else in your home. The number of uninsulated garage doors sold continues to decline as consumers demand energy efficiency for cost savings and relaxation, which is more essential than ever as more people use their garage as a work place or social gathering area, and not just storage.

Garage doors created from aluminum and glass offer a contemporary, refined look. The aluminum frames are available in several colours and finishes and you could choose from a wide assortment of glass options including clear, vague, and tinted. Aluminum garage doors are relatively care-free, however they may not possess as much insulation as other doors, so they may not be ideal for areas with excessive temperatures.

Can the greatest moving object in my house be dangerous? Make sure it's not.

Safety is a concern with any product, and garage doors are no different. Since it is a big moving object that many family members socialize with, it will have as many safety features as possible.

Crunch-resistant garage doors feature a design that pushes fingers out of harm's way should they accidentally be set too close to a shutting door.

Tamper resistant bottom brackets reduce the danger of injury from garage door parts under tension. The polyurethane insulation even provides better fire safety because this type of insulation reduces the amount of smoke and flames in case of the fire.

The thermal property of insulation is expressed as an R-value. A higher R-value reduces external sound and aids the door function more quietly. Many insulated doors are constructed using polystyrene or polyurethane foam.

Most polystyrene insulated door can be thicker but have a lower R-Value than polyurethane. If you're searching for thermal efficiency and also a high R-Value, don't be tricked by the thickness of the door!

A polyurethane insulated door might look thinner but actually offers a much greater insulation R-value. That is on account of how the insulating material expands through the production process to tightly fill the cavity between the two steel panels as it bonds to the skins of the doorway.

Not only does this make the door better insulated, additionally, it makes the door amazingly strong and helps lessen noise whilst the door operates.

How long your door will last, what kind of punishment it can take, or even how much annual maintenance it'll require is strongly influenced by the material used to create the doorway.

The Classic Steel garage doors and Carriage House Steel garage doors are durable with only occasional demand for cleaning or touch up. Vinyl garage doors can continue even longer, especially in environments with harsh weather conditions, and are more immune to dents, are rust-free and never should be painted.

Counterbalance springs are how your door is actually lifted and shut. It isn't the opener that really lifts and shuts your door. That only provides the force to get the door moving. It is actually the springs, which are wound tightly whenever your door is shut. As the door moves up, the springs unwind, which provide the force needed to lift the doorway. As the door closes, the weight of the door actually winds the springs back up until it closes fully. At this stage the springs have their full tension again. These springs are generally exposed and when they are under full tension, can be particularly dangerous.

Everyone has a budget. Well, most of us anyway. However, many people are surprised by how affordable garage doors can be. Most imagine two times as much as what it truly comes out to be.

Generally, premium wood doors are the priciest, then fiberglass doors, steel doors with and without vinyl or PVC overlays, and then uninsulated, single sheet steel doors and lower grade wood doors.

When considering what to spend though, consider that this purchase will never be made again for many, many years, if ever. And what you put on your garage now will have a big impact on the garage itself and possibly even more significantly, to the remainder of your home. A couple additional dollars now could give a benefit of a lifetime, and raise the real value of your house to a new degree.
