As Denver homeowners deal with another winter, don’t overlook the impact it can have on your garage door. Harsh weather can wreak havoc on panels, springs, and openers if you’re not prepared. Here are 5 key ways to make sure your garage door survives the winter better than ever.
- Insulate and Seal for Warmth. Insulating your garage door is essential for Denver’s harsh winters. It helps retain heat and cuts down energy costs. Adding weatherstripping is crucial for sealing out cold drafts, keeping your garage warm during winter months.
- Regular Maintenance to Prevent Ice Buildup. Winter’s cold can lead to poorly operating garage door mechanisms. Regular maintenance, including inspections and lubrication, prevents freezing and ensures smooth operation throughout the winter.
- Security Upgrades for Winter Safety Enhanced lighting and security features are vital in winter when days are shorter. Upgrading your garage door’s security can deter break-ins during winter’s shorter days and longer nights.
- Aesthetic Enhancements for Winter Appeal. Upgrading your garage door can improve your home’s curb appeal, especially if you are selling your home in a winter season. New doors will more than likely increase your home’s value.
- Professional Pre-Winter Inspection. Scheduling a professional inspection ensures your garage door is in optimal condition to survive many winters ahead, saving you from costly repairs and inconvenience during long, cold spells.
