Around the House: Garage Door

A new garage door brings fresh beauty and greater function to your home. It can increase your home's curb appeal, improve security and even add value.

To select the right garage door and opener for your home, it's important to understand your options and take the following into consideration:



Windows and Insulation

Durability and Safety


Garage Door Styles

There are two major styles of garage doors: classic and carriage house.

Classic style

Classic style garage doors are found in many homes today. The classic style features either flat/flush surfaces or several rows of rectangular panels.

The Home Depot offers three series of classic style garage doors from Clopay, each with a wide selection:

Carriage House Style:

Before modern garages housed automobiles, carriage houses stored horse-drawn vehicles. Enhance your home's curb appeal with a new garage door that captures the look of that bygone age.

The Home Depot offers three Portfolio Lines from Clopay. The Portfolio Line includes several collections of wood and steel Carriage House designs providing old world charm with modern and convenient operation:

Note: Prices vary by size and options (i.e., solid door, windows, hardware).

Garage Door Materials

Most garage doors are made primarily from either steel or wood.

Steel Garage Doors: Many homes today have steel garage doors. Steel garage doors generally offer better durability, require less maintenance and are more affordable than wood doors. Some steel garage doors simulate the look of wood.

Wood Garage Doors: Garage doors made from real wood add elegance and style to your home, enhancing its curb appeal. Wood garage doors at The Home Depot offer the look of traditional carriage-house and panel-style doors.

Windows and Insulation

Windows: Windows add style and let light into your garage. Most garage doors at The Home Depot offer a variety of window options:

Single-pane clear glass

Obscure (translucent) glass

Insulated clear glass

Insulated obscure glass


Insulation: A garage door should help reduce noise and insulate against heat and cold, especially for a garage that's attached to your home, that has a room above it or that's used as a place to play, work or store items.

Thermal Insulation: A garage door's ability to insulate against heat and cold depends on its construction and the type and thickness of its insulating layer. An "R-value" indicates how well a garage door insulates. Higher numbers mean better insulation, greater energy efficiency and lower utility costs. Check with an associate at The Home Depot nearest you about reading R-value labels on your new garage door.

Noise Reduction: The same insulation that keeps cold or heat out of your garage also helps to reduce the amount of external noise transmitted through the door, so higher R-values also mean less noise.

If insulation is important for you, consider a garage door with multilayer construction:

Classic Line Premium Series

Classic Line Value Plus Series

Portfolio Line Coachman Collection

Portfolio Line Gallery Collection

Durability and Safety

More durable doors offer greater resistance to scratching and denting and look beautiful longer.

To determine how durable your garage door needs to be, think about how your garage and driveway are used:

Do children use your driveway or garage as a play area?

Is there a basketball backboard on your garage?

Do you frequently move construction or yard equipment in and out of your garage?

Do you load bicycles and other objects from your garage into your car?

If so, your garage door could be subject to all sorts of bumps and collisions that could cause dents or scratches. Consider one of the many highly durable steel garage doors offered at The Home Depot in our Classic Line (all series) and Portfolio Line (Coachman and Gallery series).

Extreme Weather: In areas with extreme weather, building codes may require specially constructed garage doors. Clopay's WindCode doors, for example, are specifically designed to withstand the high winds of some coastal areas. For more information, please call 1-888-480-9500 or visit The Home Depot store nearest you.

Safety: Safety is important when choosing your garage door and opener, especially when children are present. You can count on our installers to make sure your garage door is installed properly for maximum safety, and you can count on The Home Depot to offer garage door openers with extensive safety features.

The safety of your garage door and opener also depends on proper maintenance. Please review the care and maintenance information for your new garage door and opener.

For best results, every month you should:

Inspect your garage door and opener

Lubricate door springs and hardware

Perform a safety reverse test

Check your garage door balance

Winter storm 2016: How to stay safe in the cold and snow

Babies sleeping in cold rooms can also be at risk for hypothermia, according to the CDC. And don't neglect to bring your pets indoors during severe winter weather.

Parker said she sees lots of ice-related falls in the Chicago emergency department where she works. Broken ankles in high heel wearers and broken hips in the elderly are a particular worry.


Dr. Rebecca Parker, a Chicago area emergency physician and president-elect of the American College of Emergency Physicians said alcohol and cold weather are also a dangerous mix.

Get out of the cold if you're experiencing redness or pain in any skin area because frostbite might be beginning to set in. White or grayish-yellow skin, or waxy-looking skin, can be a sign of it, too.

Driving in snow and ice

Colorless, numb nose, ears, cheeks, chins, fingers, and toes are frostbite warning signs -- when your body parts are actually freezing. It can cause permanent damage and you need to head to an emergency room if you think you or someone with you has frostbite.

Hypothermia strikes when your body is exposed to cold temperatures and begins to lose heat faster than you can produce it, leading your body temperature to drop abnormally low. Normal body temperature is 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit. If it dips to under 95 degrees, emergency medical care is needed, the CDC says.

While shoveling, protect your back by bending at the knees, not the back. Stand with your feet hip-width apart for balance and keep the shovel close to your body. Don't try to pick up too much snow at once.

The American Automobile Association's website abounds with winter weather advice for drivers. Some key recommendations:

Stay put at home if it's not essential to be driving in snowy, stormy, icy weather.If you must drive, watch weather reports prior to driving, especially a long distance trip, or before driving in isolated areas, so you know about delays and what to expect regarding conditions.Don't drive when you're sleepy or fatigued.Don't drink and drive.Let others know your route, destination and estimated time of arrival.Make sure your vehicle is in peak operating condition.Fill 'er up. Keep at least half a tank of gasoline in your vehicle at all times.Drive slowly and accelerate and decelerate slowly.Keep a mobile phone on hand.Pack blankets, gloves, hats, food, water and any needed medication in your vehicle.

If you are involved in an accident or become snow-bound:

Stay with your vehicle. It provides temporary shelter and makes it easier for rescuers to locate you. Don't try to walk in a severe storm. It's easy to lose sight of your vehicle in blowing snow and become lost.Don't over-exert yourself if you try to push or dig your vehicle out of the snow.Tie a brightly colored cloth to the antenna or place a cloth at the top of a rolled-up window to signal distress.At night, keep the dome light on if possible. It only uses a small amount of electricity and will make it easier for rescuers to find you.Make sure the exhaust pipe isn't clogged with snow, ice or mud. A blocked exhaust could cause deadly carbon monoxide gas to leak into the passenger compartment with the engine running.

Heat safety in winter

The CDC says you can warm the affected area using body heat -- the warmth of an armpit can be used to warm fingers, for example.

If someone is showing signs of hypothermia, the CDC says to:

Move the victim into a warm room or shelter.Remove any wet clothing.Warm the center of the body first -- chest, neck, head, and groin area -- using an electric blanket, if available. Or use skin-to-skin contact under loose, dry layers of blankets, clothing, towels, or sheets.Warm beverages can help increase the body temperature, but do not give alcoholic beverages. Do not try to give beverages to an unconscious person.After body temperature has increased, keep the person dry and wrapped in a warm blanket, including the head and neck.Get medical attention as soon as possible.


"People wear the wrong kind of shoe gear. Women trying to wear high heels and going to work in a snowy area. Wear good shoe garb," she recommended.

Never using a kitchen stove to heat your home. And never operate a generator inside the home, including in the basement or garage, as the exhaust can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning. Don't hook a generator up to your home's wiring. The safest approach: connect the equipment you want to power directly to the outlets on the generator.

If you are using a fireplace, use a glass or metal fire screen large enough to catch sparks and rolling logs. Make sure embers are entirely out before heading to bed.

In extreme weather, she said, "We have to keep a close eye on our elderly population."

"Frostbite is in your extremities," said Parker. People playing in the snow can get it easily because of cold, wet clothes.

The young are also at risk, she said. Last year, a Wisconsin toddler wandered outside to play in the snow on a cold night and froze to death.

But shoveling can create other health hazards.

Almost 6,000 people are killed and over 445,000 people are injured in weather-related crashes each year, according to data analyzed by Booz Allen Hamilton, based on information from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Be cautious when using space heaters. Place space heaters on a level, hard surface and keep anything flammable at least three feet away, such as paper, clothing, bedding, curtains or rugs. Make sure space heaters are turned off before leaving the room or going to bed.

Snow shoveling

One of the early signs of hypothermia is, in fact, confusion, she said. Older people suffering from Alzheimer's can be particularly vulnerable because they already have trouble thinking clearly. One elderly Chicago woman with Alzheimer's was recently found frozen to death right outside her door with her keys in the door, Parker said.

Here are some top cold-weather health hazards you'll want to avoid, and tips on how to manage if you find yourself or someone nearby in danger:

Shovel driveways and paths clear so things don't freeze over, Parker added.

Slipping on ice

"Make sure you lock your doors at night and that the locks are high so toddlers can't get to them," Parker advised.

Whether you love a visit from old man winter or hate the guy, knowing how to stay safe in cold, stormy weather takes some common sense and preparation.

When it comes to shoveling ice and snow, the Mayo Clinic recommends dressing warmly in a few layers of clothing, and stretching and warming up beforehand to reduce muscle injury. Mayo says to be heart conscious, too; talk with your doctor beforehand if you have a history of heart problems, because every year the strain of shoveling snow is linked to heart attacks in people who may not be used to that level of exertion.

"Do not drink and go out in the cold. The idea of a hot toddy outside is not a good one. Alcohol affects your circulation and dampens your awareness of what's going on around you. It makes hypothermia worse," she said.

Just last week, an elderly Georgia woman died after she slipped and fell outside her home while trying to help her disabled husband. Both lay helpless outdoors through the frigid night, and only the husband survived, probably because he was dressed in warmer clothing.

"Take off all wet cold clothes. Warming, rapid warming is needed. Don't rub it. Get into warm water -- about 100 degrees Fahrenheit -- the temperature of a warm to hot bath," recommended Parker.

Even if your plan is to cozy up at home, the Red Cross warns trying to stay warm on frigid days and nights comes with a few risks, too.

Don't try to walk on frostbitten toes and avoid using a heating pad, heat lamp, or the heat of a stove, fireplace, or radiator for warming. Affected areas are numb and can be easily burned.

Also, stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water.
