+#1 Keep The Ice Away From Your Garage Door
This sounds real hard, doesn’t it? Well, it is easier if there is a slope where your garage door and driveway meet. When ice develops at the bottom of your garage door it can make your garage door stick to the ground. That doesn’t sound so bad, right? Very wrong, as that can damage your garage door in a few different ways. For one, it can tear off insulation and the rubber at the bottom of your garage door. It can also tear up the door itself if there is enough of it and your garage door opener can actually open it. Ice can also burn out that garage door opener.
How Do You Fix This?
Clear off the ice before your attempt to open your garage door. Pour some salt down in front of your garage door to keep this from happening at all. You might also try hot water and a hair dryer, just be quick if you are using hot water.
Broken, Brittle and Cracked Garage Door Parts
It is a very real possibility that your garage door might have a few parts break on it during the winter. Garage door springs, in particular, get very brittle in the cold and will break. They counteract the forces of gravity on your garage door so they do support a lot of weight. You will likely know when one breaks. The best way to prevent this? Put a heater in your garage and insulate your garage the best you possibly can. This sounds costly, but it will save you from more costly garage door repairs.
