Winter is just around the corner, which means cold weather and snow are almost here in Utah. Due to the bitter cold days and nights, the last thing you want to have happen is a broken garage door. Low temperatures can cause your garage door to freeze shut, leaving your and your family out in the cold. Before winter hits, make sure your garage door is prepared with the following winter maintenance tips.

The weather stripping on your garage door should be in good shape to prevent ice and snow from creeping in and freezing the door shut. If you notice any cracking, warping, or rotting, contact the professionals at Advanced Door to replace the weather stripping just in time for Winter.
Clean the Tracks
Gunk and grease tend to build up on the garage door tracks over time, which can be extremely inconvenient when temperatures reach freezing. We recommend taking a cloth to wipe away and remove any dirt and grime so your garage door can open and close properly.
After cleaning the tracks, use a regular grade oil to lubricate all moving parts, including rollers, hinges, bushings, and tracks. Lubricating with help your garage door operate smoothly. After lubricating, wipe away any excess oil to avoid further grease build-up.
