If you already have a garage, here are a few of our best tips for getting it ready for the coming summer months. Preparing your garage for warm weather is simple, affordable, and you can do everything in a single weekend.

Clean the Door

At least once a year, thoroughly sweep out your garage to get rid of dirt and debris, and then wipe down your garage door with a soft, damp microfiber cloth to remove accumulated dust and dirt. You can then apply a thin coat of car wax to prevent future buildup.

Inspect and Lubricate the Moving Parts

Carefully inspect the tracks, rollers, springs and hinges and remove all dirt with a brush or small vacuum. Then lubricate the moving parts with something like WD-40, but don’t use grease.

Check the Weather Stripping

Weather stripping on the bottom of the door helps keep dust and bugs out of your garage. Check it at least once a year for cracks and holes, and replace if it appears badly worn and damaged.

Consider Adding Insulation

We recommend adding insulation if your garage isn’t already insulated. Insulation will help keep out the heat and cold, which can also affect your home’s temperature as they are often interconnected.
