    garage door insulation

    A common quick job and upgrade we do for clients is installing garage door insulation on an existing garage door.

    Insulating your garage door is an easy DIY job if you’re up for it!

    The biggest concern you need to watch out for is accounting for the added weight to your garage door after the insulation is installed.

    If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you know that the weight of the door affects the size of your springs, your garage door opener, and more. You need to make sure the amount of weight you are adding doesn’t affect the ability for your opener, cables, and springs to work properly.

    Oftentimes a spring will break or a garage door won’t open properly because the spring size isn’t the right size to match the weight of the door. It can cause the opener to not work properly or even break (safety hazard!) if the parts aren’t sized properly.

    If you want to do this job yourself, go ahead! And then spring (ha!) for an inspection by a licensed garage door repair company to ensure it is a job well done and the other parts of your door are functioning properly.

    Top Reasons to Insulate Your Garage Door

    1. Temperature control. Especially if you use your garage to work out, work on home projects, etc, an insulated door is great to keep it cooler in summer and warmed in winter.
    2. Steel backed insulation can make your garage door stronger!
    3. Insulation also acts as a noise barrier, especially if you live on a busy street! This is again helpful if you are working in your garage and want a quieter work space.

    There are many great reasons to insulate your door. Make sure it is done properly and you’re good to go!
