Don’t Let Rust Bring Moving Parts to a Halt
Get Rid of the Grease
Protect Your Weatherstripping
Clear Away Ice and Snow Right Away
However, waiting until the mercury rises to tackle the ice or snow buildup in front of your garage door isn’t a good idea. When the weatherstripping at the bottom of the garage door is exposed to ice or cold water for too long, it becomes damaged. If it can’t do its job, your heating bills will rise because of poor insulation.
Give Your Windows Some TLC
Some garage doors have windows.Windows lend a touch of sophistication as well as natural lighting to garages. In the winter, they can also let in water and cold air if they’re not properly insulated.
Examine the seal around each window for cracks or tears. If the seal is broken, replace it to prevent leaks.
Take Care of Your Home
Just because winter is coming doesn’t mean you have to fret. Be proactive about garage door maintenance so you can enjoy the snow, too.
