The weather seal on the bottom of your garage door protects your garage’s interior from exposure to the elements. Manufacturers make weatherstripping to withstand years of changing seasons and continuous use. Still, those elements might need repairs or replacement from time to time. Your weatherstripping also experiences a vast amount of pressure each time your overhead door closes. That pressure can cause or worsen cracks and other types of damage.
Despite your overhead door’s durability, some elements experience so much wear and tear during everyday use that they need regular maintenance to keep your garage door functioning properly. As a homeowner, you should practice preventative maintenance often. Look over the major elements of your overhead door and garage door opener for visible issues. Call a professional to schedule repairs if you see anything that appears worn or broken.
