Garage Door Maintenance Tips For Summer

Summer is the perfect time to take care of your home’s garage door.

Routine maintenance is essential for the longevity and functionality of your garage door and the summer months are the perfect time to get the job done. When you regularly focus some attention on your garage door, you aren’t just making sure it is functioning properly, you are also enhancing its curb appeal!

Your summertime garage door maintenance should include:

Cleaning: Dirt and debris gather on your garage door over the winter months. Use a combination of car wash or mild dish soap and water to wash your door, using a soft cloth or sponge. Clean both sides, then rinse thoroughly with the hose. If your garage door has windows, use glass cleaner to wash both sides.

Rust Removal: If your garage door is metal, any rust or corrosion can be detrimental. Rust has the tendency to spread rather quickly so remedying the issue promptly is ideal. Sand any rust spots to prevent spread, then seal the area with paint.

Painting: Does your garage door have a ton of scratches and general wear and tear? Is the color dull and lifeless? Summer is the perfect time to lay down a fresh coat of paint on your garage door! It won’t only improve the appearance, new paint can also help to protect your garage door from the elements.

Inspection & Repair: In your garage door isn’t functioning or makes an unusual noise while it opens and closes, enlist the help of a professional! Though you may be able to tighten screws yourself, some jobs are best left to the experts.
