How to Prepare Your Garage Door for Winter?

Most homeowners concentrate on different tasks in preparation for the winter months – from winterizing the lawn to cleaning gutters, prepping vehicles, and maintaining all heating appliances. Unfortunately, in most homes, the garage is sparingly included in that winter prep list.

The fact is, the garage door is an exterior feature of our home, which is used several times a day. That is why cold and extreme weather conditions can increase the probability of wear and tear and other damages to this entry and exit point in our home.

The good news is that there’s still time to get started in making the appropriate preparations in protecting your garage doors when the snowflakes start to fly. It is recommended that homeowners shouldn’t wait for the cooler weather to arrive.

Here are some of the tasks to add to your to-do-lists this fall to protect your garage from moisture damage during the winter months.

Examine the Seals and Tracks of the Door

DIY garage door inspection or maintenance is practical. The first step is to have a thorough check on the operations or movement of the door. Concentrate on identifying unusual sounds as well as watch for smooth movement of the door. Take notes that will help you investigate further if you observe any unusual thing or sounds while the door is moving up and down.

The next thing is to inspect seals of the door to ensure that harsh, frigid air is restricted from making its way into your home. If the seals have several punctures or that that the door is making a whole lot of noise, then take the next step. 

Add Garage Door Insulation 

To further prevent cold air from entering your garage and the entire house. It’s recommended that you add a garage door insulation. Taking this step could make a whole lot of difference in ensuring that moisture does not build up to freeze into ice to cause more complicated problems. 

There are garage door insulation components that are available. But if you can’t find any product that will fit your needs, our experts will be of great help. Call us today, and we will get your garage insulated against cold during the wintery months. 

Lubricate Your Garage Doors Moving Parts

The garage doors moving parts includes the bearings, springs, and hinges. When they are not adequately lubricated, there will be increased friction that could cause heat as well as reduce the efficiency of the door.

Follow this procedure to lubricate the moving parts of your garage door.

  • Close the door and make sure you disconnect it from the power source for safety. 
  • Now access the rollers of the door and use a damp cloth to remove buildup that may be hindering its operations. If it’s a huge buildup, we recommend that you use the hose attachment of a heavy-duty vacuum.
  • Get a spray lubricant and apply it to the moving parts of the doors like the armbar, locks, bearings, springs, rollers, hinges, etc.
