How to choose a Garage Door


 
Home Improvement

With today's high energy costs, garage door insulation is equally as valuable as anyplace else in your home. The number of uninsulated garage doors sold continues to decrease as consumers demand energy efficiency for cost savings and comfort, which is really more significant than ever as more folks use their garage for a work place or social gathering spot, and not just storage.

Garage doors made from aluminum and glass offer a modern, refined look. The aluminum frames are available in lots of colours and finishes and you can choose from a wide selection of glass options including clear, vague, and tinted. Aluminum garage doors are relatively maintenance-free, however they might not have as much insulation as other doors, so they may not be ideal for areas with extreme temperatures.

Can the greatest moving item 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's a large moving object that lots of family members interact with, it should have as many safety features as potential.

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

Tamper resistant bottom brackets lessen the risk of harm from garage door components under tension. The polyurethane insulation even provides better fire safety in that this sort of insulation lowers the number of smoke and flames in case of a fire.

The thermal property of insulation is expressed as an R-value. A higher R-value reduces external noise and enables the door work more gently. Many insulated doors are built using polystyrene or polyurethane foam.

Most polystyrene insulated door can be thicker but have a lower R-Value than polyurethane. In case you are trying to find thermal efficiency along with a high R-Value, avoid being deceived by the depth of the door!

A polyurethane insulated door might look thinner but actually offers a much higher insulation R-value. That's on account of how the insulation expands during 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, it also makes the door amazingly powerful and helps minimize noise whilst the door works.

How long your door will last, what sort of punishment it might take, or even how much yearly 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 need 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 really lifted and closed. It's not the opener that really lifts and shuts your door. That only provides the force to get the door going. It is truly the springs, which are wound tightly when your door is closed. As the doorway moves up, the springs unwind, which provide the force needed to lift the door. As the door closes, the weight of the door really winds the springs back up until it closes completely. At this point the springs have their total tension again. These springs are normally exposed and when they are under full tension, can be immensely dangerous.

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

Generally, premium wood doors are truly the most high-priced, 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 this purchase won't be made again for many, many years, if ever. And what you put on your own garage now will have a big effect to the garage itself and possibly even more significantly, for the rest of your home. A few extra dollars now could give a benefit of a lifetime, and increase the value of your house to a brand-new level.

In case you have ever wondered if you needed info for selecting the right garage door then this post might help.
