The garage is an essential part of your home, especially when attached to the house. It is therefore important to make sure it is weather-proofed, more importantly during winter.
If you do not do this the cold temperatures could damage your car and any valuable equipment that you store in your garage. Plus, it would make it impossible to do anything in there until the winter passes.
What to do?
You can do many things to prepare your garage for the winter but we will just look at three most important ones:
- Insulate the garage door and walls
The easiest thing you can do is to insulate the garage door. At Seattle Garage Door Experts, we can insulate your doors at affordable rates based on industry specifications. We use the best materials to ensure that your garage will be warm and toasty all through the summer. You can also opt to get new insulated doors put in that we can supply to you at very reasonable prices.
The garage wall will also need insulation against the elements. You can hire a contractor to put in fiberglass insulation or your preferred kind of insulation.
- Install or replace the weather seal
Even with an insulated door, you need to install or replace your weather seal to keep the garage temperature stable. You can call us to inspect, maintain and repair your weather seal round the clock.
- Put in a unit heater
Another thing you could do is to install a heater in your garage to maintain normal temperature. You can get the heater specifically designed for garages because other heaters used in regular spaces are fire hazards around any chemicals or saw dust that may be present in your garage.
At Seattle Garage Door Experts, we will supply you with affordable insulated doors and high quality weather seals to make sure your garage is livable and your car and other equipment is protected through the winter. Call us today and talk to our experts about these and other exciting offers.
