Your garage door is the largest operating structure in your home. When investing in a new door you have to ask yourself, how often it will be used, how much wear and tear it will see, is your garage attached to your home and what are the different designs options". A door is either non-insulated or insulated.
Non-Insulated Garage Doors:
Our garage doors are always going to be made with 2" thick sections. They will be either 26, 25 or 24 gauge steel. With steel gauge you have to remember the lower the number the thicker the steel. Where you're going to see a huge difference in non-insulated doors is with the hardware they use. Often other manufacturers go "cheap" with non-insulated doors. All of our C.H.I. non-insulated doors use "commercial grade" hardware, steel ball bearing rollers and come with a manufacturers lifetime warranty against rusting, splitting and cracking. Check out our hardware guide (below) to learn all about garage door hardware.
Insulated Garage Doors:
Is your garage attached? Do you have kids? Is it used numerous times a day? Is it heated or do you have bedrooms above it ? Well an insulated garage door is the right choice for you.
Unfortunately, all insulated garage doors are not alike. Here's where you're going to want to weigh your options according to your application.
Most new build homes:
With an attached garage, use this type of door. The builders like it because it is the most affordable non-insulated door option. Unfortunately, because it's only a vinyl backer on the interior, this door is only slightly stronger than a non insulated door. You'll still be able to flex the outside steel with the force of one finger. Often, over time it tends to dent and the inside vinyl discolors, ripples and rips. Since this door is usually installed on an attached garage, that is used daily, I find that most homeowners with this type of door are replacing it within 10 years.
Polystyrene sandwich Garage Doors:
The next step up is a sandwich insulated Garage Doors: Anytime you hear "sandwich " it means the insulation is sandwiched between two pieces of steel. The insulation will either be polystyrene or polyurethane.
Polystyrene sandwich Garage Doors:
Insulated doors are going to be 2" thick with the polystyrene insulation sandwiched between 2 pieces of steel. This is the most popular insulated model with homeowners. You'll find R-values
ranging from 7-10. They tend to be installed on attached garages, where the garage is not heated and or
where there are children in the home and the door may see more wear and tear than
usual. Polyurethane sandwich insulated doors tend to be installed on attached garages where the garage is heated or there are bedrooms above the garage. It tends to be installed on attached garages, where the garage is not heated and or where there are children in the home and the door may see more wear and tear than usual.
Polyurethane sandwich insulated Garage Doors:
Are usually installed on attached garages where the garage is heated and or there are bedrooms above the garage. R-values range from 12-18 depending on the door thickness. Remember the higher the R-value the better the door is insulated. If your application is not heated and does not have bedrooms above the garage than this door is probably more door than the application calls for.?
We look forward hearing from you.
