Do You Really Need Garage Door Insulation in Florida?

The answer is absolutely! Your garage door is an essential part of your home, and therefore so is a homeowner’s choice for garage door insulation.

Florida residents often find they use their garage doors daily. As a result, many are choosing to upgrade or replace them, but some in Florida struggle to learn on their own how to insulate a garage door. Still, many residents want to take advantage of the wide array of benefits and additional protection that garage door insulation provides their homes, cars, and lives. But what is the best garage door insulation option for hot climates like Florida?

An insulated garage door from The Roof Guys offers a wide range of cost benefits as well as performance improvements. We are happy to show you the reasons why!

What is an Insulated Garage Door?

Insulated garage doors are made slightly differently than other models. They come built with two layers of steel, aluminum, and/or composite wood; along with insulation materials between each layer. These doors tend to be thicker and heavier because of this insulation. They can also have additional layers of insulation, depending on your specific needs.

An insulated garage door also benefits from having an R-value that can help save on electricity cost. An R-value serves as a unit of measurement in evaluating the energy efficiency of a garage door — the higher the value, the less heat that door allows to enter your garage during the summer.

The R-Value is an important feature for any insulated garage door in a Florida climate. R-value ratings score by the type of insulation used, the thickness of the garage door, and the material construction.

What Layering Options Do You Offer?

The Roof Guys are proud to offer a Double Bubble Radiant Barrier system to insulate your garage door. This type of insulation boasts the highest R-Value among insulation products that use bubbles and performs well inside metal buildings such as aluminum garages. It is one of the best garage door insulation systems available to help keep heat out of a Florida home.

Double Bubble Radiant Barrier systems also offer additional benefits, including:

  • Reflect up to 95% of radiant heat
  • Reduce damaging heat and increasing comfort
  • Reduce outside noise pollution
  • Lightweight material does not add unnecessary strain to garage door motor
  • Aesthetically pleasing white backing

The Difference: Insulated Garage Doors vs. Standard Garage Doors

You deserve a garage door with insulation that is aesthetically pleasing, modern-looking, complementary to your home, and easy to use. There are plenty of options with both insulated and standard garage doors, but the main difference between the two is the performance factor.

When you allow The Roof Guys to add insulation to your garage door, you are going to have an evenly regulated indoor temperature, improved stability, more resilience, noise reduction, and smoother operation. The benefits are tough to beat!
