Clopay Garage Door Makeover Sweepstakes Winner

Aug 08, 2011

Gina A. in Connecticut is the grand prize winner of the Clopay Garage Door Makeover Sweepstakes.

Gina lives with her family in a 1960s ranch style home. In addition to enhancing the curb appeal of her home by getting rid of the original outdated wood panel garage doors, she wants to improve the energy efficiency of her home by upgrading to well-insulated garage doors.

The house has a finished basement adjacent to the garage and a bedroom above.

Replacing an older garage door with a new, energy efficient model can reduce energy loss through the garage by up to 71% according to a comparison study conducted by Clopay engineers.

Since attached garages typically share one or two common walls with the house, any hot or cold that travels through a door will ultimately affect the adjacent living areas. An insulated garage door can help stabilize temperatures in the garage to reduce heat losses or gains.

Depending on the specifics of the home, a well insulated door can help keep an unheated garage 10 to 20 degrees warmer on a cold winter day. That can have a significant impact on the comfort of family rooms or bedrooms located above or next to the garage.

Here are some of the design options Gina is considering. Steel doors offer a higher R-value than wood doors so you’ll notice all the doors are constructed in that material.
