Environmentally Friendly Garage Door Ideas

While you might think about energy efficiency when purchasing a new appliance or replacing your roof, you might not consider whether a garage door is eco-friendly. Yet selecting a garage door with eco-friendly properties can help you conserve energy in the home–not to mention, do good for the environment. Here’s what to look for when selecting an environmentally friendly garage door in Oklahoma City.

Recycled Material

Aluminum and steel garage doors are both common, and both can be eco-friendly if they make use of recycled metal. Both steel and aluminum garage doors are highly energy-efficient when combined with insulation. Two to take a look at include our Thermacore® Insulation Collection and our Modern Aluminum Collection.

While not recycled, wood can be a sustainable material for garage doors if it’s sourced from a supplier that follows sustainable initiatives, such as replanting trees after harvest. Composite doors may be a better choice than pure wood, however. Crafted from metal with a layer of wood fibers, these doors have the look and feel of wood without the steep environmental impact or the high price tag.

If you’re attracted to the look of wood but want something sustainable, consider our Courtyard Collection or Impression Fiberglass Collection.

Insulation and Weatherproofing

By selecting a garage door that has high insulation and weatherproofing, you’ll reduce home heating and cooling costs, as well as drafts.

Look for garage doors that have polyurethane insulation with an R-value of 12 or greater, such as those in our Impression Steel Collection.

The Thermacore® Collection is another top pick. Crafted from two layers of steel with polyurethane insulation and thermal breaks in the middle, Thermacore garage doors reduce air leaks and temperature fluctuations. You’ll save money on utility bills and feel comfortable year-round.

The Durafirm Collection® is ideal for those who are concerned about environmental impact and seeking a vinyl garage door. Durafirm Collection® vinyl garage doors include soundproofing and insulation. You’ll get the look and feel of wood with less maintenance and insulation of 11.75 R-value.

Our Wind Load doors are ideal for those who want to protect against heavy winds and storms. The Thermacore® and Courtyard Wind Loads doors offer the same eco-friendly properties as other doors in the collection with a greater degree of protection against storms.

Friendly customer service. Bought a hard to find remote for an old garage door opener. Opener has 3 buttons so I can program both doors to it. Easy to find location right off 29th St.

I was given a very fair quote. A week later a tech came and installed. Then came back to install lock. Tech was very professional and polite. Spen time with me making adjustments to my liking. I totally recommend Overhead door to my fellow Okies.

Overhead Door did a great job. They got me on the schedule the next day and fixed my spring in 30 minutes or less. Joe was great, professional, and courteous. Awesome service, and he didn't tell me I needed extra materials like the previous garage door people that quoted me $575. Overhead Door told me a price over the phone and it didn't change. I'd recommend them every time.

Pleased with their services. Coil spring broke and door stopped working. Spoke to Ron, and less than 24 hrs later the technician had us up n running again. These guys did exactly what they promised to do, with no nonsense. I like that.
