Garage door insulation

jessica12March 14, 2009

I am converting my carport to a garage. Do I need to spend the extra money to purchase an insulated door. I live in Mobile --- it never gets very cold here. The walls nor ceiling will be insulated. Online the manufacturers make them seem more sturdy or like they are somehow more attractive. I can't find samples of materials -- I can't tell anything by looking at the brochures or online.

Thanks

Jessica

Given the climate and the fact that you don't plan on heating or cooling the space, I wouldn't waste the money.
