Tips for a Cooler Garage in the Summer

Avoid a Garage from Overheating

Garages can sometimes turn into an oven during summertime, which magnifies the summer heat. Here are a few tips to surviving a hot summer in your garage:

  • Pick a Light Color – If you live in an area that known for hot summers. Take that into consideration when it comes to purchasing your garage door. Dark colors absorb heat while light colors reflect heat. Choosing colors such as white, off-white, or beige will help keep the heat out.
  • Insulation – The insulation of your garage plays a huge role in how hot your garage will get. Wood garages are natural insulators so they will repel heat. Consider adding insulation around window, doors, walls, and ceiling to keep the garage cool.
  • Bust out the fan – Keeping a fan in your garage to help circulate the air will reduce the heat.

A New Twist on a Classic

Steel Garage Doors

Many home renovations focus on the interior of the home rather than the exterior. When homeowners decide to give the outside of their home a face-lift, they tend to think of landscaping and house paint. Garage Doors can make a huge difference to the look of your home.

Steel doors for your garage are a great way to add style to the outside of your home. A copper door paired with the natural wood or stone on the outside of your home is simply stunning (Shown Above). Or a silver steel door with a painted backdrop is also beautiful to behold.

For your steel door installation, look to Overhead Door Northland.
