    Mostly, this Web site focuses on aspects of materials that make them green (or greener). When it comes to garage doors, there's not too much to say, except:

    1. Attached garages are not recommended because of IAQ concerns, so if possible keep your garage separate from your house.

    2. If you want more information on the energy performance of garage doors, see Energy-Efficient Garage Doors.
