3 Tips For Garage Door Winter Maintenance , Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin

Winter weather affects more than just road conditions. The snow and ice put excessive wear on your garage door, leading to damage or even a potential breakdown. To keep your garage functioning smoothly all season long, follow the winter maintenance tips below. 

3 Tips to Prepare Your Garage for Winter

1. Add Insulation

Adding insulation to your garage walls helps with temperature control by keeping cold air from seeping into your home. As a result, your HVAC system doesn’t have to consume more energy to maintain a comfortable home. Not only does this keep your monthly utility bills low, but it also prevents your pipes from freezing over. 

2. Replace the Weatherstripping

It also prevents rain, snow, and ice from entering your garage and causing water damage. Inspect the weatherstripping around your garage before winter begins. If you see any significant wear and tear or damage, it’s important to replace it right away. 

3. Schedule an Inspection

To ensure your garage is ready for the upcoming season, schedule a professional inspection with a garage door technician. They have the experience and tools to ensure all moving parts are properly tightened, lubricated, and that there are no faulty springs or components. They will also clean the tracks in the garage door of any dirt or debris that may affect the door’s function.
