|Tired of being cold or hot?|
Our garage doors, insulated with high‑pressure injected polyurethane, provide a thermal resistance of R 12 or R 16. As well, these doors have the best weather protection systems with their InterLokTM seals, their ThermaBlokTM frame weatherstripping, their U‑shaped bottom weatherstripping, and their wood end blocks that prevent heat transfers between the outside and the inside of the door.
|Tired of fixing it!|
Garaga doors are 1 3⁄8", 1 ¾" or 2" thick, making them twice as strong as polystyrene doors. Our Dura+ residential hardware ("14‑gauge" tracks, nylon rollers with 11‑ball bearings, anchoring welded to rails, 3 reinforcement bars for double doors) doubles the life span of your garage door.
Many installed garage doors for less than $1000. Consult How much does a residential garage door cost?
