The Vintage Plus line of Delden Garage Doors is a very popular and affordable carriage door. The 25 gauge steel pre-painted doors are 2 inches thick insulated with polystyrene with a vinyl backing. They are reported to have an R-value of at least 6. Obviously these doors are not meant to be used in areas that have tough winters or where you are going to heat or cool your garage. One of the problems with using polystyrene insulated panels is that this type insulation leaves gaps which reduce the effectiveness of the insulation.

When you start shopping for your garage door purchase one that isnt too big and bulky. A large garage opener can take up most of your headroom (the available vertical space of yoru garage) and limit your storage space. It also limits what type of vehicle that can enter and be stored in your garage. For instance SUVs will be incredibly hard to park if you have limited vertical space. Roller garage doors are less complicated to operate than sectional garage doors. They also have smaller and easier to handle panels which greatly reduces the risk of accidents.
