As a door expert witness I am called upon many times a year to evaluate garage door injuries. Garage doors come in many shapes and sizes. Their functions range from basic security of an area to cosmetic concealment. Most doors can be broken down into a few basic styles or categories. Typical modern garage doors for residential applications tend to be predominantly of the overhead sectional variety. That style of door comes in many configurations materials levels of insulation and a wide range of appearance possibilities.
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.
Garage area may not be used by the car alone; it works as a store for inventories & old furniture or a workshop for others. You would want a door which insulates well if there is a part of house extended above the garage. The R-value on a garage door tells how well it insulates. The higher the R-value the better is its insulation properties. Terms like Headroom Backroom and Sideroom become parameters to select a suitable garage door as they determine the dimensions; Headroom is the amount of space inside the garage between the top of the garage door and the ceiling. Backroom is the inside length of the garage from front to back. Side room is the distance between the sides of the garage door and the side walls of the garage. Dimensions matter when you are installing a garage door as the hardware needs some room to operate freely.
