Wooden doors tend to come at a higher cost than their counterparts due to the manufacturing process. In addition, many wood garage doors undergo sanding and painting by hand. Although this may be true, wooden garage doors require more upkeep to remain properly functional and aesthetically pleasing.

In the building industry, R-value is a measure of thermal resistance per unit area. The higher the R-value, the better the insulation properties – leading to the greater energy efficiency of your home. However – twice the R-value DOES NOT mean twice the insulation.
The metric of R-value measures heat transfer by conduction – transfer of thermal energy through a solid material. For example, an insulated door with a high R-value promotes energy efficiency in your home. However, Keep in mind as long as you don’t have proper weatherstripping, a higher R-value will fail to provide you with the desired effect.
Do I need an insulated garage door?
An insulated garage door presents a great number of advantages for your household, particularly its energy efficiency. We highly recommend installing an insulated garage door, especially if your garage door is attached to your home. An insulated garage door reduces temperature fluctuations, particularly in the rooms adjacent to or above the garage. Insulation decreases noise interference as well.
In the case of a detached garage, mainly if used as a leisure or work area, insulation can help provide year-round comfort.
There are three primary levels of insulation in garage doors – single layer (aka ”pan”), double layer, and triple layer. Single-layer doors aren’t insulated. Double layer doors have a layer of polystyrene insulation and, Triple-layered doors offer the highest insulation and noise dampening properties.
