Frequently Asked Questions

Q? What is R-value, and how does it benefit me?

A.

R-Value is a measure of thermal efficiency, the higher the R-value the greater the insulating properties of the door. Ashe County Garage Doors uses a calculated door section R-value for our insulated doors. We have several door styles to meet your insulated door needs for both residential and commercial applications. 

Q? I have a low ceiling in my garage. Will a garage door and opener work?

A.

Yes. A residential garage door requires a minimum of 4 1/2” of headroom space. Your garage door system may need a low-headroom track system or a low-headroom-torsion rear-track system. For a garage door opener, you will need slightly more headroom (about 6 1/2” minimum).
