Getting Your Doors Ready for Winter

As summer slowly drift into fall, announcing the imminent arrival of cold weather, it becomes important to properly prepare your house. As you may already know, doors are a privileged point of infiltration. They must therefore be carefully inspected in order to avoid unpleasant surprises.

An improperly adjusted garage door, which operates in an unbalanced manner, can allow winter weather, such as cold, wind, water or snow, to penetrate. Even small rodents can be tempted by the warmth of your garage if you do not take precautions!

Among other things, it remains essential to check the condition of the weather stripping at the bottom of the door as well as the rubber tresholds. If they are missing or damaged, air may seep in, causing significant heat loss during the winter. Needless to say, they should be repaired or replaced if necessary.

The same applies to the door opener and the hardware of your garage door. Rails, springs and hinges must be inspected to avoid unpleasant surprises. In this regard, it is vital to ensure that the garage door opener is working properly.
