Ways to Weatherproof a Garage Door

If your garage door has not received regular maintenance or attention, there is a good chance you will notice water, dirt, or rodent droppings any time soon. Most homeowners neglect the garage door when they consider home improvement or maintenance which contributes to heat loss that can negatively affect the overall energy usage.

The continuous neglect of your garage door may also lead to rot or mold problems. However, avoiding all these problems only requires a few alterations and knowledge of garage door maintenance tips. To help you tackle some garage door problems that may impede the integrity of your building, Bob's Advance Garage Doors has put together some valuable tips in this article.

Upgrade your Garage Door Insulation

Insulating the garage door and all other entrances in your home will help contain the warm air that your HVAC system generates. If your current garage door is not properly insulated, the best approach will be to upgrade to an insulated door before winter arrives. In case you can’t afford a new garage door installation then upgrade insulation on your current door.

However, if you’d like to insulate your door, there are many options available. You can use foam boards, fiberglass batt insulation, or reflective insulation panels. If your garage door is old or made with wood, aluminum, or metal, then consider upgrading to doors with the highest insulation value. Whatever choice you make, Bob's Advance Garage Doors is available to help.

Replace your Garage Door Seals

The rubber stripping seal is designed to resist water infiltration and energy loss in the garage but when it’s brittle, cracks or breaks, it becomes ineffective. Apart from taking the brunt of harsh weather, the rubber stripping seal ensures adequate closing of the door by aiding the lifting mechanism.

To ensure the weather-stripping of your garage door is intact, we recommend that you do an inspection. This wouldn’t be a stressful activity. Check around the sides and top of the door to see whether the rubber has become brittle. They need to be changed immediately and that is fairly a simple task. If you don't have the time, tools, and expertise to change the rubber or vinyl weather-stripping in your garage door, then call Bob's Advance Garage Doors.

Run a Check on the Automatic Openers

Malfunctioning modern automatic openers can be the cause of a cold draft in your home. These automatic openers can develop faults during winter and will not close properly. You need to check whether the doors are closing properly or not. Because apart from exposing your home to the elements, an open door is a security risk. Swift action is needed whenever you notice that the automatic openers are not working properly.  

Inspect the Moving Parts of the Door

Take a few moments off your busy schedule to have a look at the various moving parts of your garage door - hinges, pulley and cable, rollers, belts, torsion spring, curved door arm, etc. Metal contracts during cold temperatures making the doors to perform poorly.

If anything is abnormal with any metal component of the door, you may need to correct it. The moving components of the garage door helps it to function properly. However, if there is a defect, the opening and closing operation will be affected.

So, before the cold weather starts to move in, you need to repair the moving components of the door.
