Kudos to Haas Doors I'm building a new garage and found this post very helpful. Thank you Martin. Despite this being a 2 year old post, it seems the industry isn't any more forthcoming with installed door testing now than it was at the time of writing. One notable exception is Haas Doors. They've taken a step in the right direction by publishing independently tested R-Values for the full door assembly: http://www.haasdoor.com/about/insulation.html Kudos to them. I would guess a lot of manufacturers making good doors are reluctant to publish this information for fear the uninformed consumer would incorrectly assume their doors offer inferior insulation properties. Haas posts it right next to the sectional R-Value, allowing you to see that they compare favorably to the rest of the industry on that (mostly meaningless) measure. I'm probably going to choose them for my door simply because of their attempt to be honest (It doesn't hurt that they come recommended from a trusted source). Does anybody else know of a company that posts this information publicly?
