Rear Exit Garage Door Double Door or Overhead Door Energy Efficiency

Joe Nagle
last month

I am thinking about putting a rear garage door for getting the lawn mower out in a new construction home. I was once told to use a double door for energy efficiency by a local builder a few years ago. Now I am being told the opposite that the overhead door will seal better and won't allow as many drafts. I live in Wisconsin and will have an insulated garage with a heater. Wondering what others thoughts are and which choice would other make. Also would 6' x 6'-8" double door and 8' x 7' overhead door side like the correct sizes to use for each instance.

Thanks in advance for any advice!
