Can my garage door be painted?

Many residential garage doors can be painted. Please review your owner's manual for instructions. Most garage door manufacturers can powder coat your garage door in-house, offering multiple colors.

Can I replace a section of my door, or do I need to replace the whole door?

Yes, you can replace just the damaged panel. But, an assessment of the entire door will need to be performed to guarantee safety and warranty of the door. Older makes and models of panels cannot be replaced because they are no longer available.

What is R-Value as a measure of thermal efficiency?

The higher the "R-Value", the greater the insulating properties of the door and the more energy savings you will achieve.  The R-Value contains two types of R-Value insulation starting with Polystyrene Thermal Insulation, which starts at a 6.58 R-Value. Polyurethane Thermal Insulation is the highest form of R-Value, which can increase to 19.40 R-Value (this is injected insulation). There are MANY benefits to owning an insulated door. Strength, durability and longevity are key factors of an insulated door. Insulated doors provide energy efficiency, low maintenance, and an extra quiet operation.
