Getting your garage door ready for winter


The summer heatwaves are a distant memory, the nights are growing longer and you’ll almost certainly want a woolly hat and a pair of gloves to hand if you’re heading outside. Yes, winter is almost upon us – in fact, depending on which definition you use, it may even be here already.

While you turn the heating up to keep your house warm and pile on another layer or two to keep yourself warm, it’s important not to forget about your garage. Both the garage and its door can suffer from the cold, too – here are a few handy tips to make sure your garage door stays in top condition throughout the winter.

Have your garage door serviced

The simplest way to get your garage door ready for winter is to have it serviced in advance. This will allow a professional to assess the condition of your door and carry out any repairs or maintenance work, so there’ll be one less thing to worry about over the festive period.

Switch to an insulated door

If your current garage door isn’t insulated, then now might be the ideal time to make the switch. An insulated garage door will help to keep out the cold over the coming months, as well as making sure your garage stays nice and cool when temperatures eventually start to climb again.

Check your door’s weather stripping

Without proper sealing, your garage door won’t be able to keep out the cold and your garage will suffer. Check the weather stripping at the bottom of the door to see if it’s broken or cracked and replace it if so. Replacement stripping is cheap and easy to find online or in shops.

Insulate your garage

The garage door isn’t your garage’s only defence against the cold. Fill in any holes, have your windows double glazed and consider using materials like laminated plasterboard to insulate your garage’s walls.
