As a GTA homeowner, you know how important it is to have top quality insulation in your walls and ceilings that keep you warm when winter’s icy winds howl outside, and cool when summer’s steamy heat spells do battle against your beloved air conditioner.
And so, you may think: “I have all of the home insulation that I need. Why should I bother getting an insulated garage door? Wouldn’t that just be a waste of money?”

Well, the short answer to that question is: no!

The slightly longer – and much more informative – answer is: regardless of how well insulated your home is, the fact is that an insulated garage door makes sense.

Here are the 5 reasons why:

1. Insulated garage doors save you money.
You garage could be your home’s “Achilles heel” when it comes to energy efficiency, thereby forcing you to spend more money to heat your home in the winter, and keep it cool in the summer. An insulated garage door keeps this under control. And since energy prices are only going up (and up…and up!), the amount you’ll save even after just a few years will more than offset your extra costs. And then after that, it’s savings all the way!

2. Insulated garage doors are durable.
You want your garage door to look great – but you also want it to last for decades. Fortunately, insulated garage doors are injected with polyurethane (a synthetic resin), which helps protect against dents and nicks. This is particularly appreciated during street hockey season!

3. Insulated garage doors keep things quieter.
And speaking of polyurethane: did you know that it also functions as a very effective noise barrier? It’s true! What’s more, insulated garage doors feature quieter operation compared to non-insulated garage doors. So whether you’re toiling away in your garage workshop, or you simply want to keep neighborhood noise in the neighborhood – and not in your house! – then an insulated garage door is the right decision.

4. Insulated garage doors add value and “curb appeal” to your home.
Regardless of whether you’re thinking of selling your home soon or maybe not for decades, it’s always wise to invest in home improvements that are going to pay off down the road if and when you decide to move. Insulated garage doors are on the “wish list” (and sometimes, the “must-have list”) of many house hunters, and can help you sell your home faster and for a higher price.

5. Insulated garage doors help you get more out of your home.
If you’ve never used your garage door for anymore more than parking your car or storing your stuff, then an insulated garage door might just change the way you look at your home! Indeed, when you no longer have to worry about temperature extremes, you can transform your garage into a party room, a workshop, a “man cave” (which comes in very handy during hockey season!), a games room for the kids, and the list goes on. It’s like adding a whole new room to your home for a fraction of what you’d pay in renovations — and with absolutely none of the stress!

Add it All Up…
When you add it all up and see all of the reasons why an insulated garage door makes sense, the question you need to ask is no longer: “why do I need an insulated garage door,” but rather: “with so many benefits and advantages, why didn’t I get one before now?”

At Atlas Garage Door, we don’t have a time machine to help you answer that question (sorry, that’s not our specialty!). However, we certainly have honest and clear advice, guidance and information to help you make an informed decision on whether an insulated garage door is right for you and, if so, which one will keep you and your family smiling for decades to come.
