These Lewis Center homeowners wanted an authentic-looking garage door without the hassle of maintenance. The Clopay ultra-grain series was a perfect match to their needs because of the patented spray-on wood grain texture. Clopay sprays the wood grain finish a special way, coating the door once in one direction, then again in an opposite direction. They take that extra step so your garage doors look like they came straight from the forest.
Purchasing a garage door can be a hard thing to do. There are some things you’ll want to check into when you are considering what type of garage door is best for your home. For instance, garage doors have different types of insulation. If you’re looking for an energy efficient garage door, you’ll want to check into how high the R-Value is on your garage door. You’ll also want to see if it has your typical polystyrene insulation or if it has Clopay’s newer version called Intellicore insulation.
The difference in those two types of insulation lies in what material is being used to fill the garage door frame.
How Polystyrene Garage Door Insulation Works: Your garage door is full of panels, and boards of polystyrene are cut to slide into those different sections. This isn’t a bad way of insulating a garage door and is a pretty standard model of garage door insulation.
How Intellicore (Polyurethane Foam) Garage Door Insulation Works: Intellicore insulation is a foam that manufacturers spray into the frame of the garage door. With such a malleable product, the insulation reaches to fill the tiniest corners of the garage door frame.
If you want to think of it visually, picture filling a glass with ice cubes (Polystyrene Insulation) and then picture filling it with water (Polyurethane / Intellicore Insulation). The ice leaves some space left in the glass.
No matter the insulation, you’re going to get a good quality Clopay door when you go with Deluxe Door Systems. These Lewis Center garage door buyers were thrilled with the outcome, and if you look closely, you’ll see Brutus was, too.
