WILL IT PROVIDE EFFICIENT INSULATION?
Are you planning to use your garage as a workshop for vehicle maintenance, building projects, etc? If yes, then you will need proper insulation to keep you warm during the winters and the extreme heat from the summer out.
This is where energy efficient garages come into play. Most the time when shopping for a garage door, energy efficiency is the last on the must-have-list if it's even on the list at all. Who really needs insulation for a room used to store cars and storage items. The work shoppers and those that have their washer-dryer hook up in the garage should have this as a top priority.
Look for the R. The R-Value is what will tell you how much insulation you will have. It's a measure of thermal resistance used. Clopay advertises an R-Value of 17.2, Wayne-Dalton having R-15 and Overhead Door having the highest at 17.5 to name a few.
The top concern is not looking for the R-value, though, it's looking for air leakage. Make sure the garage door you get offers you adequate air leak insulation.
DO I NEED WINDOWS ON A CARRIAGE STYLE DOOR?
You don't need them, in fact, most don't use them and have closed arch window designs. I however, prefer the look with top open arched windows, but that's what's so great about this garage door, the designs and options are not limited and it can be customized to fit your own preference.
WHAT IS THE PRICE RANGE?
LOW 1400.00 UP TO 2700.00 for the superior quality.
