An insulated garage door is essential to keeping cold air out of your home during winter months. Temperatures fluctuate often in the Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati tri-state region, so your best defense against high utility bills is having the proper insulated garage door. In fact, having the right insulated garage door can reduce heat loss by more than 70%. Additionally, insulated garage doors can help save your car’s battery, protect tools or other items you may store in your garage, and can even reduce street noise.

The best rated insulated garage door is the Thermacore ® 490 series manufactured by Overhead Door ™. The Thermacore ® 490 series is a 2” thick polyurethane insulated steel door, which features between-section seals to reduce air infiltration through thermal breaks.
