Want to know more about what an eco-friendly garage door can do for you, and what your choices are when it comes to sustainable garage doors for your home?
Environmentally-friendly Garage Door Options
There are several options for consumers looking for ways to save money and energy by installing an environmentally-friendly garage door. You can purchase a garage door made from recycled materials, or choose an insulated garage door to lower your energy bills. Choose a steel garage door for the most planet-friendly garage material, because steel is primarily composed of recycled materials. Doors made with polystyrene or polyurethane foam insulation are safe and the greenest garage door choice available.
A garage door with a weathertight seal at the bottom is perfect for protecting your garage, and prevents any leaks that cause heat or cooling transfer. If you choose a garage door with glass inserts, ensure the glass is insulated to increase energy efficiency, and created with special UV protection to keep glass looking good for years to come. If you're on a budget and can't afford a new garage door, purchase a used one from Willow Creek for an affordable and environmental option.
Raynor and Midland both offer plenty of garage door options that are stylish, energy efficient, and durable so they’ll last for years to come. You can choose between materials like steel, custom built wood, and French style doors along with many color choices.
