Ensure Your Garage Door is Ready for Winter


Now is the perfect time of year to be thinking about your garage door and its state of repair., You can ensure your garage is protected and safe throughout the coldest and wettest months of the year and ensure items housed within it are kept secure by looking at a few potential problem spots and taking action to repair anything that requires it 



  • Look for Holes or Gaps 


Take a good look at the area around your door for any gaps or holes. These gaps could let cold air, moisture, or even rodents into your garage, any of which could cause damage to the items you store inside – whether it’s your car, sports equipment, gardening tools or even if it’s where you’ve been hiding Christmas presents out of sight of your kids! 


If you discover any gaps or holes in the area around your door, these should be filled in immediately by yourself or a professional. 



  • Look After Moving Parts 


It is crucial to keep the moving parts of a garage door clean, lubricated and maintained, whether you have an automatic or manual garage door. During winter, there can be issues with damp, moisture and cold affecting these parts, so it’s a good idea to have these checked by a professional company such as ours. Our engineers are highly experienced and can check over all moving parts, carry out any cleaning required or undertake any repairs needed to keep everything moving as it should. 



  • Check Opening and Closing 


You should check if your garage door opens and closes smoothly and easily. If not, our engineers can carry out any repairs or maintenance required to get your garage door working correctly again.
