Tips for Seasonal Garage Door Maintenance

A good well-functioning garage door is integral to any home. Not only can a garage door provide security, it can also enhance a home’s aesthetic. That’s why regularly maintaining and repairing your garage door is a necessity. However, garage door maintenance can vary depending on the season. If you’re looking to accomplish year-round maintenance on your garage door, here are some tips that you need to keep in mind. 

Winter Garage Door Maintenance

The winter season is when you should consider taking a close look at the weatherstripping on your garage door for any tears or rips. If you haven’t yet weatherstripped your garage door consider doing so because of the benefit it brings. Weatherstripping prevents the outside air and moisture from entering your garage allowing the inside of your home to remain warm. During this time be sure to also check the functionality of your garage door. If you find that your door is struggling to automatically open, contact All Right Garage and we’ll inspect the cause of your issues and make an informed recommendation. 

Spring Garage Door Maintenance

Because of the increased sunlight that springtime brings, you will want to wash your garage door windows. Clearer windows will allow more light to be transmitted into your garage. It’s this time of the year where you will also want to lubricate your garage door’s moving parts. Doing so will prevent them from possibly being rusted. 

Summer Garage Door Maintenance

With the amount of time you’ll be spending outdoors, there’s no time like the summer then to consider washing your entire garage door cleaning it of any molds or stains. This is also a good time to consider recoating or repainting your door to liven it up and restore its shiny appearance. 

Fall Garage Door Maintenance

Following the summer season and the heated weather it brings, you’ll want to be alert and on the lookout for any possible resulting damage. Carefully survey your garage door for any cracks, dents, or scratches. This is particularly important as this sort of damage could lead to moisture penetrating your garage door.
