    Two Part Question about garage door Empty Two Part Question about garage door

    Post  ltramont on Sat Feb 16, 2019 5:03 pm

    We have a south facing steel garage door--the Chicago winters beat the everloving crap out of it every year and there are always large paint chips that fall off of it. None of our neighbors have this issue. We are sick to death of having it scraped, sanded, primed and painted every year. Any idea what might cause this?

    Secondly, since we are sick of this and dislike out boring door, we are looking to perhaps replace it. I'm thinking triple-insulated fiberglass with a new, accompanying garage door opener. What are your thoughts on this and what brands would you recommend? What door will not give us the same problem?

    The paint shouldn't chip off the door unless there was a defect from the factory or a pressure washer was used to clean the garage door. You'll have a problem finding a fiberglass door since 99% of the doors on the market are steel. I would recommend a company that stands behind their door warranties such as Raynor Garage Doors

    Thank you for the concise and prompt response. Can one get a triple-inulated steel door?

    what do you mean by "triple insulated"? you can typically get a standard density insulated door ( 1 lb of insulation per cu ft ) or a higher density insulated door ( 3 lb pf insulation per cu ft ) which is what im guessing you are referring to.
