The Value of an Insulated Garage Door

Since your garage door opening is usually the biggest in your home, it can also be an area of extreme heat and energy loss. This results in drafty rooms in the winter, hot and humid living areas in the summer and a lot of money wasted on heating and cooling. Many homeowners, especially those located in areas with temperature or weather extremes, may wonder if they should insulate their garage door to help alleviate these issues. Insulating your garage door provides many benefits in addition to saving you money by increasing energy efficiency.
When buying an insulated garage door, there are several things to consider. Garage doors can be insulated with polystyrene or polyurethane insulation.

Commercial Fire Doors

Only in the event of an actual fire or emergency situation do most people fully appreciate fire-rated doors. Business owners, on the other hand, have a better understanding of the importance of fire doors. In the event of an actual fire, these doors can serve an important role in keeping flames and smoke from spreading to different parts of the building. They can also serve as a means of easy escape in case of an emergency.

Fire-rated doors specially made to withstand the extreme heat of fires. These hollow metal doors and frames must have a closing device and latch. Fire doors are often equipped with panic hardware and fail-safe or fail-secure emergency exit locks. 
Fire doors are required on many commercial buildings in order to protect occupants, block the spread of flames and smoke, and minimize the overall property damage. Because they close automatically when a fire is detected in the building, these doors are a key component of a building’s passive fire protection system. Interio…

Follow these steps in the spring and in the fall, and you will be able to catch most issues before they ever become trouble.
1. Watch and listen to your door. Open and close your garage door a few times, each time inspecting a different area. Is there a jerkiness to the operation? Do you hear scratching, grinding or some other noise that seems out of place? Your garage door should operate smoothly and be relatively noise free.
If you do hear or see problems, call a trusted garage door repair technician like Gandert Door Company. Garage doors have components that can be dangerous or deadly when worked on by the well-meaning, but un-trained DIYer.
2. Clean out the track. Since it is in the garage, it's probably not an area that you dust o…
