Fall Garage Door Maintenance
Fall is a good time to plan your annual maintenance, if you haven’t already. Here are just a few of the aspects of your garage door that you should concentrate on in the fall:
1. If your garage door is making an awful racket, you need to make sure you apply lube to the entire garage door track. This simple step can help your garage door run more smoothly through the fall and winter.
2. Weather stripping becomes increasingly important as the weather gets cooler. If your garage door has weather stripping, make sure it’s making a strong seal. You may lose heat through your garage door, if your garage is attached to your house. If your weather stripping is not sealing tightly, it’s time to have it replaced.
3. If you notice your door jamming or sticking, it may be a sign of bigger trouble ahead. The problem will only get worse. Don’t wait until your garage door is stuck up or down. The last thing you want during the winter is to be stuck with a garage door that won’t fully close. It will allow a lot of cold air in, making your home uncomfortable.
