Garage Door Prep For Winter

garage door prep for winter

Winter is almost here. Garage doors need specialized maintenance to ensure they function properly during the cold months when temperatures stay in the 30s or below. Weatherizing garage doors will keep cold air, wind, rain, snow and ice from seeping in, as well as help keep energy costs down. Winterizing also protects pipes and equipment that is stored in the garage.

The first step is to assess the condition of your garage doors. Is the insulation growing thin? Is the weather stripping wearing down? Are the doors moving slowly? Can you see cracks or light coming in?  A few simple checks and procedures can help you avoid problems when the snow starts to fall.

Proper lubrication

Lubrication is the first defense in winter. Well-lubricated doors are necessary in all seasons, but especially in winter. Use a non-silicone lubricant that is specifically manufactured for garage doors. Apply it to the rollers, hinges and springs. Test it out to ensure that the doors roll up and down with ease.

Weather stripping

Weather stripping creates a seal around the door. It is common for it to become compromised over time by heat, wind, and rain. To know whether your weather stripping needs to be replaced, place your hand in front of it to discover if wind is coming in. Weather stripping will help keep warm air in and cold air out.


There are a number of effective products to insulate the garage doors, such as foam board, batt insulation, or reflective insulation. All three will increase the energy efficiency of a garage door. It is important to know that adding insulation to the door will also add weight to the opening device.

Proactive winter proofing is the best way to maintain the integrity of your garage doors. Do you need help with garage door preparation for winter? Call us at HABPRO Garage Doors at 770-985-3355. We can help!

I’m so glad that I contacted Bill @ Habpro when the spring in my garage door broke. I called mid-morning and he had a technician at my home that afternoon. The technician was kind and extremely professional. He had the garage door fixed very quickly and for a great price! I would ABSOLUTELY recommended Habpro to all of my friends and family! What a great experience with great people!

Kaylee F.

Wonderful quick service. They helped me find the part to replace and came out within a few days. Greg was able to have the problem fixed within in hour time and also gave me some insight as to why the problem happened in the first place. Price was very reasonable as well. Will def be using this company again and refer them to my friends and family.

Daniel B.

Fantastic service and premium quality product. Bill gave me competitive prices on two insulated metal doors and programmable openers, scheduled the installation at a convenient time for me, and Chuck who did the installation show up right on time. After he thoroughly cleaned up, he stayed and helped sync both vehicles to the openers. I highly recommend Habpro. You won't be disappointed.
