Explore Garage Doors by Quality & Insulation

Your garage door is only as good as its quality and insulation, but it ultimately comes down to what you need to store and how much you want to spend. The material used to construct the garage door and the type of insulation used is based on what’s known as R-value. The R-value measures the insulation of a garage door. The higher the R-value, the better the insulation. Almost all our garage door styles come in different R-value options, giving you the flexibility to choose the style & budget.

R-Value: 12–18
Insulation Type: Polyurethane


R-Value: 9–11
Insulation Type: Polystyrene


R-Value: 8
Insulation Type: Polystyrene


R-Value: N/A
Insulation Type: N/A

1) Do you have an attached garage?

2) Do you live in an area where temperatures either a) vary drastically throughout the year, or b) are extremely hot or cold year-round?

3) Do you use your garage as a workspace for hobbies?

4) Do you keep any animals or pets in your garage?

5) Are you planning on selling your home within the next 10 years?

If you answered YES to two or more of the above questions, an insulated garage door is the best option for you.

If you answered NO to three or more of the above questions, you may not need to spend the extra money on an insulated garage door. 

If you have a detached garage, you are probably not too concerned about the temperature inside your garage. Likewise, outside temperatures and noise will not be able to creep into your home from your garage. 

You could also bypass the expense of an insulated garage door if you live in an area with a mild year-round climate, as outside elements will not have a significant impact on temperatures indoor. 

Another factor to consider is how often you operate your garage door throughout the day, and if you tend to leave it open for extended periods of time. Each time the garage door opens, your home’s thermal envelope is broken – insulation will not serve much value to you if your garage door is constantly being operated or if it is kept open for long time spans. 

Regardless of your decision, Dover will be sure to find you that perfect door at the perfect price.

Choose Your Color

Your home’s overall appearance can help you pick out a garage door color.

A bold, unusual hue is a nod to modern exterior.

But don’t be afraid to break the rules – Using an unexpected color can add personality and liven up a traditional facade.

Use a neutral hue such as brown, black, or gray for a look that will withstand the test of time.  If your style changes or you alter your home’s exterior later, neutral hues will adapt with you. 

Whether you want to stand our or blend in we can help you make the right decision. 

Still unsure? Try using our visualizer where you can build the door of your dreams right on your home! We offer 8 solid color options, 3 woodgrains, as well as the Sherwin Williams color wave option – we can match any SW paint sample, bringing your vision to life!

Do You Want Windows On Your Garage Doors?

Here are some of the most common options for the style of windows along with the different options of glass types.

Openers manufactured after 1980: Remotes can be purchased from one of our showrooms in Flint, MI or Saginaw, MI. Openers manufactured prior to 1980: we no longer carry remotes and your system must be upgraded.

Deciding when to get a new garage door opener depends on several factors, including the condition of your current opener, its functionality, and your specific needs and preferences. Here are some common situations in which you might consider getting a new garage door opener:

  1. Malfunctioning or Unreliable Operation: If your current garage door opener is frequently malfunctioning, such as having trouble opening or closing the door consistently, it’s a sign that it may be time for a replacement.

  2. Unusual Noises: If your garage door opener is making unusual or excessively loud noises, it may indicate worn-out components. This can affect the smooth and quiet operation of your garage door.

  3. Outdated Technology: If your opener lacks modern safety features or remote control capabilities, you might consider an upgrade. Newer openers often come with advanced security features, keyless entry options, and smartphone compatibility for added convenience.

  4. Lack of Security Features: Older garage door openers may lack important security features that help protect your home, such as rolling code technology, which changes the code used to open the door with each use, making it harder for thieves to intercept the code.

  5. Safety Concerns: If your opener does not have safety sensors that can detect obstructions and prevent the door from closing on objects or people, it’s a safety risk. Consider replacing it with a safer model.

  6. Remote Control Issues: If you’re experiencing problems with remote controls, such as inconsistent range or non-responsive buttons, it could be an issue with the opener itself. Replacing the opener might solve these problems.

  7. Age of the Opener: Garage door openers typically have a lifespan of 10 to 15 years, but this can vary depending on usage and maintenance. If your opener is approaching the end of its expected lifespan, it’s a good time to consider a replacement, even if it’s still functioning.

  8. Smart Home Integration: If you want to integrate your garage door into your smart home system, it may be necessary to upgrade to an opener that is compatible with the technology you use.

  9. Increased Security Needs: If you’re concerned about security or have had a recent security breach, upgrading to an opener with enhanced security features may provide peace of mind.

  10. Resale Value: If you’re planning to sell your home, a new garage door opener with modern features can be an attractive selling point and potentially increase the value of your property.

When considering a new garage door opener, consult with a professional garage door technician or installer. They can assess your existing setup, recommend suitable replacements, and ensure that the new opener is compatible with your garage door system. Choosing the right opener for your specific needs and budget is important for the long-term functionality and safety of your garage door.
