» How important is insulation in a Wayne-Dalton garage door?

Insulation is important in a garage door for many reasons. In addition to helping control the temperature, Wayne-Dalton's patented design and foamed-in-place insulation add strength to your door while reducing noise.
The amount of insulation a garage door provides is represented in its R-value (10) , which represents its resistance to heat flow. It is important to select a garage door with an R-value that is consistent with your local climate and lifestyle.
