Garage Door Pros
Weatherproofing Services in Houston and Surrounding Areas
Most everyone probably wishes cold weather would affect only the outdoors. Sadly, though, the weather does impact the inside of your home. Every time you open your garage door, heat escapes, and moisture sneaks in. This affects the temperature of your home. Thankfully, there are ways to combat this process. Garage Door Pros can help you weatherproof your garage against the elements.
Garage Door Pros can repair or install weatherproofing features to help improve heat retention. Several weatherproofing options exist for Houston, Texas residents. Some of these options include:
- Threshold and bottom garage door seals
All of these features work together to keep heat in and moisture out. It’s important to get regular maintenance on your garage door so each part is effective, especially during the colder months. We recommend getting your weatherproofing features inspected when fall starts.
Why You Should Weatherproof
Maybe you’re not concerned about weatherproofing. A little heat loss? So what? Well, we’ll tell you what. When you open your garage door during the colder months, heat escapes, and your HVAC system kicks in to make up for it. That means your HVAC system has to work overtime, which results in higher heating bills for you. By spending a little extra money to weatherproof your home, you’re actually saving yourself cash in the end. Weatherproofing is a long-term, worthwhile investment.
How to Weatherproof
The best way to protect your garage during the colder months is to get a professional garage door inspection. Experts know what to look for when searching for weak spots and can repair them right then and there. However, you can also perform some routine maintenance on your own, such as:
- Replacing or installing insulation
- Sealing cracks and holes
- Replacing or installing weatherstripping
- Getting a new garage door
Keep in mind that DIYing is always an option, but it’s not always a good idea. Unless you know what you’re doing or have some experience, you should leave work to a professional. Our team at Garage Door Pros can get things done right the first time.
