Insulated Garage Doors
While ensuring that your garage door is sealed properly, one thing that many people overlook when seeking to cut down on outside noise from getting inside their home is insulating their garage doors. Insulating your garage door will not only aid in saving money on heating costs, but also makes your garage much quieter. And, when there’s less noise getting into your garage, there’s less noise getting into other areas of your home. Depending on the type of garage door you choose, there are a variety of ways to insulate it. You could go with foam board insulation, which is done by using grid panels made from polystyrene. But there’s also batt insulation and reflective insulation, the latter is especially effective for insulating against the heat.
Replace The Weatherstripping
If you’re like most homeowners you probably don’t pay that much attention to the operation of your garage door unless something goes wrong with it. While it may be cumbersome at times, we suggest that you regularly inspect your garage door for minor issues. Look and listen to your garage door as it opens and closes. One thing that’s an easy fix and easily noticeable is tattered and worn-out weatherstripping. If the rubber weather seal that’s attached to the bottom of your garage door is brittle or cracked, contact us to replace it so that you don’t encounter pests inside your garage. Ensuring that your garage is properly sealed against the elements is one of the easiest ways to increase the useful life of your garage doors.
