    How Weather Affects Garage Doors

    Last updated 8 days ago

    Your garage door is part of your home’s exterior, standing up to sun, wind, rain, and snow. Changes in the weather can have a dramatic impact on the look and function of your garage door. If you are experiencing weather-related problems with your door or opener, an experienced technician can help you find the right solution. 

    Electrical Storms
    Power surges caused by electrical storms can destroy the delicate electronics inside the opener, requiring replacement to restore normal function. If you live in an area prone to storm-related electrical surges, you can take steps to protect your garage door opener from a power surge. Rather than plugging your garage door opener directly into the wall, use a single-outlet surge protector to prevent overloading of your garage door opener’s electronics.

    Heat and Humidity
    Hot and humid weather can affect your garage door and its opener. Humid conditions can cause a short in the opener, while expansion of your door’s metal tracks could cause poor movement or obstruct motion of the door completely. If you are having trouble with your garage door related to heat and humidity, it’s best to contact a repair technician to examine the system. The tracks or opener may need to be adjusted to restore smooth motion of the door.

    Snow and Ice
    Snow, ice, and freezing temperatures can affect your garage door in the winter. Cold weather and ice formation can cause the door’s components to stick, so keep them lubricated for the best performance. If you don’t use your garage regularly, the door can freeze shut—you can prevent this issue by opening the door once a day. A repair technician can make adjustments to the tracks or opener if they have been affected by the cold.

    Is Metal the Right Choice for Your Garage Door?

    Last updated 15 days ago

    Your garage door is one of the largest working parts of your home. The garage door also contributes greatly to your home’s curb appeal. When choosing the material for your garage door, it’s helpful to consider the benefits of a metal door. Metal garage doors are more durable and require less maintenance than wooden ones. Although steel doors can be prone to rust if damage is not repaired promptly, aluminum doors are rust- and corrosion-resistant. Metal doors cost less than wooden doors, and often come with a longer warranty period as well. This type of material also offers enhanced security and insulation properties that cannot be matched by wooden garage doors.

    If you are considering replacing your garage door, Advanced Garage Door of Austin can provide help selecting and installing the best door for your needs. We also offer garage door repair and maintenance to ensure your garage door looks and functions its best for years to come.
