Preparing your Garage Door for Winter
When that winter weather shows up, the freezing temperatures tend to have their effect on everything. Your windows start to stick and your car becomes just a bit harder to crank in the mornings. Your garage door is likely to suffer from a few of the same issues, and Denver, Colorado’s garage door experts are here to show you how you can best protect your family’s garage from any damage.
The harshness of winter is particularly tough on our garage doors because it is a barrier against the elements.
So take some time to prepare it for the upcoming winter. Your garage door is full of moving parts, and these should all be checked regularly. As with anything that moves, lubrication is key to creating a smooth movement. You will want to check that your garage door springs, tracks, bearings and rollers are all free of grit and properly lubricated.
Repair Last Winter’s Garage Damages
Just as you would with any other part of your house, you will want to quickly repair this damage to prevent further corrosion. As deicing chemicals become diluted, they can eat their way down into the pores of your concrete, where they will freeze and expand with the changing temperatures. As Colorado garage owners ill know, the temperature rises and lowers below freezing multiple times a year, and the expanding of the mixture will cause the cement to crack.
Take the time to review our ‘How to Repair Garages Damaged by Road Salts‘ post to learn how to best remove these chemicals from your floor before they become a problem.
