Getting your garage winter ready

As you get your lawn, home, garden and car ready for winter, don’t forget your garage.  Often overlooked, your garage has many elements that are affected by weather both in the summer and winter.  Fall is a great time to repair damage from the summer, and prepare your garage for the onslaught of winter.  This article can help you get ready.

  • Next time you wash your car, wash the garage door too using the same soapy solution.  This keeps your door looking good and protects its metal parts from rust.
  • While you’re cleaning the door, clean the weather seal and repair any spots that dried out over the summer.  Use a silicone lubricant to keep the seal flexible and effective.
  • Check your garage door opener to ensure it’s working properly.  Rust can affect this apparatus too, and dust and dirt can inhibit operations.  Disengage the door and operate it by hand to make sure it’s rising and lowering properly.  Oil the parts as necessary.

Fall is also a great time for organizing your garage as you put away your lawn tools and break out your snow shovels.  If you need help with this process, contact us. We can help get your garage ready for winter as well.
