Get Your Garage Door Ready for Winter with These 5 Weatherproofing Tips

2. Check the Weather Strip

Protect your garage from the cold air and moisture by inspecting the weather stripping at the bottom of your door. Cracks and wear can lead to a frozen door. Plus, proper weather seals can save you money on energy costs.

3. Lubricate Moving Parts

Give your garage door the TLC it needs by lubricating the springs, hinges, rollers, tracks, and opener’s chain. Proper lubrication helps reduce friction and wear.

4. Examine Your Door’s Cables

Safety is important, so visually inspect the cables for any signs of damage. Damaged cables can put strain on the door parts and pose a risk to anyone using the garage door. Leave any repairs to the professionals.

5. Consider a New Garage Door

If your current door is old, worn-out, or damaged, it may be time for an upgrade. Look for a new door with excellent thermal insulation to keep you warm in the winter. Our Ambient or Regency Series doors with a higher R-Value are great options. Let Superior Door Service handle the installation for you this winter.
