Preparing Your Garage for Fall

Published on September 28th, 2018

Fall is finally upon us, which means it’s time to prepare our homes, including our garages, for the change of seasons. Now is the time to address any existing issues, including getting a garage door replacement in Evanston, before the weather turns even colder. Here are some steps that you can take to make sure your garage is prepared.

Store Summer Toys

With summer officially over, it is now time to store any summer toys that you utilized this summer. This may include basketballs, basketball hoops and bicycles that were used all summer long.

Install a Heat Source

If you utilize your garage as a workspace during the fall and winter months, you’ll likely want to make sure you have a heat source that keeps you comfortable while you work. Rather than your garage being a wasted space, it will now have use year-round! Make sure to get a garage door replacement in Evanston if it isn’t working properly to make sure the heat doesn’t easily escape.

Prepare Winter Gear

You’ll need your shovels and snow blower before you know it. Remove them from storage or make sure they are accessible, you never know when you might need them at a moment’s notice.


Once you’ve received a garage door replacement in Evanston, you can opt to insulate it to convert your garage into a year-round workshop.
