How old is the garage door on your home? Does your garage get very cold during the winter and very warm during the summer? If your garage door is quite old, it likely does not have the same insulating factors that are included in the manufacturing of the garage doors manufactured today. So, how do you know if your garage door needs to be replaced? Does the hardware need to be replaced if you replace the garage door? Go to my blog to find out all about the features included in the design of today's garage doors. Hopefully, you will find everything you need to determine if your garage door is in need of replacement.
If you're making your list of tasks for spring cleaning, don't forget the garage door. It's easy to simply dust it down and leave it alone for the season, thinking that it doesn't look that bad and will just get very dirty again anyway. But keeping it clean does more than occupy your time -- it keeps the door in better shape so that it lasts longer. Here are three things to do to get that door nice, clean, and ready for spring.
Wash the Door Panels and Windows
Cleaning the inside surface of the door can be tricky because you don't want to spray that with a hose -- the spray can ricochet and hit other things in the garage that you don't want to get wet. Try dusting the inside of the door and spot cleaning instead.
Check the Hardware
Go inside the garage and check out the springs, track, and weather seals:
Clean Around the Door
Cleaning the door is essential, but you also have to clean around the door if you want the door to be truly clean. Otherwise, you're just one windy day away from having more crud on your door.
