Maintenance Requirements

Agriculture garage doors should naturally be more durable than regular garage doors due to the environment and frequent use. When purchasing a garage door, you need to consider the long-term maintenance costs vs. the upfront investment.

Insulation R-Value

The R-Value is the garage door’s capacity to resist heat flow. The higher the R-value is in the material, the higher the insulating power. Therefore, if you want to minimize the moisture and temperature that enters the building, you should consider the R-Value. The three materials with the highest insulative value are reflective foil, polystyrene foam, and panel kits. You’ll only need panel kits for panel replacements.

Garage Door Design & Style

If the purpose of your agriculture garage door is functioning more than fashion, and style may not matter. Regardless, a door’s design should matter to you because of the way it operates. Do you need a vertical door or a horizontal door? Popular garage door designs and styles include raised, flush, ribbed, and elongated panels.

Before you invest in a thick garage door, make sure you have a practical reason for our decision.
