Insulated Garage Doors

There are many cost-effective benefits and investment advantages to installing a thermally injected garage door, also known as an insulated garage door. Heighten the durability of your garage door with a couple of layers of insulation from Ellis and Parrish Overhead Doors. We are able to install insulation to your existing garage door or install a brand new garage door with insulation already included. Either way, it will enhance your garage experience and lead you to a more comfortable life.

The Secret to Saving You Big $$$

While insulating your garage door is an investment, it’s well worth it. The money you save from tampering with your air conditioning and heating unit covers the upfront cost of installing insulated garage doors. Consider how the average garage door saves and secures your vehicle, home, and your belongings. Extra coverage from a thermally injected garage door is the secret to saving you money from dips or heights in temperature. 

An insulated garage door has supreme benefits, including:

  • Noise control
  • Lower energy costs
  • Extra security padding
  • Temperature controlled

How do I Make my Garage Doors Quieter?

Invest in an insulated garage door that can lessen any noise coming from it or your garage door opener. The reverse can be true if your neighbors are noisy and you would like a noise-controlled garage.

Homes have insulation, so why not your garage door? Like a security blanket, insulation for garage doors will make the noise coming from your motor muffled or a light purr if it makes any more noise at all. Any other type of noise that would cause disturbance to neighbors would be prevented with insulated garage doors, or thermally injected garage doors. 

Energy-Efficient Garage Doors—Who Knew?

Insulating your garage door is important if you want to lessen energy costs. When talking about insulation, there is an equation of how much insulation you need for effectiveness. The R-value measures your garage door’s energy efficiency. The higher the R-value, the more efficient your garage door will be.

Unlike walls within a house, garage doors don’t need as much width of insulation. The going rate for insulation in garage doors is R-6 to R-9 insulation due to the limited amount of spacing. The level of insulation required for safe efficiency depends on where you live. Our experienced Ellis and Parrish Overhead Doors technicians will know the amount of insulation your garage door needs.

In relative comparison, insulated wall cavities in Texas homes normally range from R-13 to R-15 insulation. In southern Texas, insulated walls in gas- or oil-heated homes only reach up to R-13, while walls in Texas homes with electric heat expand to a minimum of R-19 insulation. 

A Temperature-Controlled Garage

You might notice your average garage door is paper thin. Beyond the steel or aluminum exterior, your garage is susceptible to uncomfortable summers and cold winters. Studies done by garage door manufacturers have proven that garage door insulation can keep your garage 20 to 25 degrees cooler in the summer and 8 to 12 degrees warmer in the winter. If you spend any amount of time in your garage, insulating your garage doors would turn it into a nice potential living space.

The recommended amount of insulation applies to attached garages as well as detached garages that are not air-conditioned. With an additional layer to your garage door, you’re on your way to luxury with a temperature-controlled garage with an insulated garage door!

  • Did an amazing job!!! Came out inspected my needs to make sure we got the right opener. Ordered it and came back and installed it perfectly. Having the new opener on my metal barn roll up door has made life easier and more convenient. Would definitely recommend and will use them again in the future.

  • I had a full garage door replacement completed at a rental property of mine. I obtained many different quotes from all over the metroplex. Ellis price was completive with most of the quotes I received but what made him stand out was ability to get the job done quickly. I called him on a Saturday and he answered and stated he could have it done Monday morning. He texted me at 8am that he began the job and by 10:30 am he was finished and even hauled the old door away. I highly recommend him and his company.
