Prepping Your Garage for Colder Weather

Published on November 23rd, 2020

As the weather in the Midwest begins to turn for the colder, garage owners should be thinking about what preparations need to be made regarding their garage. Here are some ideas to help get you started.

Prepare Your Tools

Gas-powered appliances, such as your grill or lawn mower, will need to be winterized before being stored. This will help keep your favorite summer items in good shape for the next year. Once you’ve stowed these away, take a look around for the essential seasonal tools you’ll need, like snow shovels and rock salt.

Switch Out Seasonal Storage

With warm weather behind us, it’s time to put away the patio furniture, planters, and gardening equipment until next year. If your garage has gotten a bit cluttered, spend some time clearing away unwanted items or make space by dragging out holiday decorations.

Seal Your Concrete Floor

Concrete floors should be sealed every 2-5 years. With the onslaught of wet, salty tires and boots to come, this is an ideal time to protect your garage floor. Failing to seal your floors can cause cracks, moisture damage, and pitting over time.

Have Your Garage Door Serviced

Before the frost arrives, inspect the weather stripping around the door. With time and use, it’s not uncommon for this material to become loose or cracked. A professional garage door service company, like Roberts Garage Doors, can help ensure that you have a door that’s well-sealed and functioning properly.
