Protect Your Garage From Winter

Published on December 27th, 2017

Before the brutal parts of winter arrive, however, take a few quick steps to protect your garage from the frigid temperatures and wet conditions. As your garage door repair Skokie company, we have created a list of ways that you can take action and protect your garage from winter.

Fix Or Replace Weatherstripping

Weatherstripping creates a seal between the garage door and garage door opening. In time, the weatherstripping can become brittle and then crack. When weatherstripping cracks, air will make its way in between the door and frame and create a cold draft. If you feel air seeping through, remove the existing weatherstripping and scrape off any remaining sealant. The cleaner and smoother that you make the surface, the easier it will be to install the new weatherstripping. Close the garage door in order to align the new weatherstripping so that the flap flattens slightly against the door.
