Prepare Your Garage For Winter

Garage in Winter | Garage Door Repair West Saint Paul, MN

Before you know it, the weather will get colder. It’s a good idea to prepare your garage for the winter months before winter really sets in. Here are a few of our top tips for keeping your garage in great shape this winter.

Refurbish The Weather-stripping

Weather-stripping is a vital part of keeping your garage in good condition for three reasons. Firstly, it contributes to insulating your garage against the elements; it keeps warm air in and cold air out, stopping your garage from becoming freezing cold. Secondly, it stops dirt and debris from making its way inside - you don’t want to constantly clear out mud and leaves from your garage. Finally, there are plenty of critters that would love to live in your warm garage rather than outside; weather-stripping will ensure they can’t get in, and help to keep your home free from pests looking for warmth.

Improve The Insulation

Keeping your garage warm is a good idea. Not only does it make it a lot more comfortable to go work on the car in the morning, it also helps to minimize heat loss for the rest of your home. Cold air in the garage can easily leach heat from the rest of the house so a little extra money spent on insulation may have a big impact on your heating bills. Remember, insulation only works if it’s intact, so if yours is damaged you’ll need to look at replacing it. Our technicians will be happy to provide advice on the many options available to you.

Improve The Ventilation

It may seem counter-intuitive, having spent so much time sealing up the gaps, but improving air flow through your garage is also a very smart idea. Without sufficient ventilation you’ll find mildew and moisture building up throughout the garage, which can increase corrosion, especially in the vulnerable moving parts of your garage door system. Improving your ventilation can be as easy as modifying the door, or as installing a passive vent in the wall.
