Yes, Even a Garage Door Can Be Green and Energy Efficient
Making eco-friendly improvements around the home can be done in many ways. One easy way to improve the energy efficiency of your home is to install an eco-friendly garage door. As the largest moving component of a home, your garage door plays an important role in maintaining its structural integrity and energy efficiency - two important criteria in green building and sustainable design.
Some eco-friendly garage doors make use of recycled materials. Steel used in the production of garage doors is a good example of recycled content.
If the garage door is made from wood, the wood used should be sourced from suppliers that comply with environmental regulations regarding wood harvesting. These suppliers should follow environmentally-friendly techniques and practices for harvesting wood. Environmentally-friendly wood suppliers will re-plant trees in place of the harvested timber in order to ensure long-term sustainability.
