3 Simple Ways to Protect Your Garage Door From Extreme Weather, Rochester, New York

Winter weather may affect how your house functions in different ways; pipes might freeze or your heating unit might break.  While there are a few things that people pay close attention to, the garage door is one area that people tend to overlook.

Felluca Overhead Door in Rochester, NY shares five simple ways to take care of your garage door this winter.

3 Ways You Can Protect Your Garage Door This Winter

1. Regular Inspections

For a smooth, functioning garage door, regularly inspect and tune it; this is important regardless of the weather. Check the springs, cables, and door opener, and keep the garage door parts lubricated. Prevent snow and slush from getting on to the garage door by using different kinds of mats. This will protect the door parts from damage and prevent garage door repair issues. ​​​

2. Heat the Garage

Garage DoorHeating the space during winter is a great way to keep your garage doors in excellent working order. If there’s no radiator in place, opt for a unit space heater to do the job. Spaces heaters aren’t that expensive and can keep the cold at bay. Choose one based on the amount of space that you need to heat. 

3. Insulate the Walls

Insulation means adding another layer to the garage walls. This involves a lot of work and moving things around, but if it’s done well, it is worth the effort. Insulated walls are temperature resistant and will not let the garage get exposed to the cold weather easily.
