Garage Maintenance Before Minnesota Winter

Garage Maintenance Before Minnesota WinterThose cold, winter months are the ones when you are most likely to think that you are glad to have a garage. You can pull your car into the garage after a long day at work and know that you will not have to deal with the headache of scraping the ice off in the morning. This can literally save you 10-15 minutes each and every day of the winter. Protecting your car from the harsh Minnesota elements is also a great way to extend the life of your vehicle, it’s paint and even your tires. If your garage is not working properly, now is a great time to get it looked at so you are ready for those winter months.

Importance of Routine Garage Door Maintenance

Winters in Minnesota are extreme. Once the weather turns cold, we do not generally thaw out for months. Your garage may not be climate controlled, but it does keep your car protected from wind and precipitation and keep the engine from that extreme cold. It also saves you from having to walk out onto the slick sidewalk or driveway to climb in and warm up your car on those cold mornings. Garages are a true creature comfort that many of us have gotten used to.

Just like your car, your garage door may need some simple maintenance every now and again to keep it working well throughout the year. Rise & Shine Garage Doors can complete garage door repair, garage door maintenance and even garage door installation. We can make sure that your garage is ready for the winter months. Routine maintenance can include inspecting the door and opener for any issues, checking for rust on all parts of the door, tightening the nuts and bolts on the door, making sure that the garage door track is clear of debris, checking tracking alignment, ball bearings and weather seals, lubricate the moving parts and check the overall safety and balance of the door.
