Caring For A Wood Garage Door

Garage Door Safety

Wood garage doors are a popular choice for many homeowners due to their natural beauty and durability. However, wood doors require more maintenance than other garage doors, such as steel or composite doors.

Here are a few tips to help you keep your wood garage door in top condition:

Tip #1 – Inspect your wood door regularly for signs of damage, such as cracks, warping, or rot. If you notice any damage, repair it immediately to prevent further deterioration.

Tip #2 – Apply a protective top coat once a year to protect the wood from the elements and keep it looking its best. Contact our team for recommendations on the best top to use for your wood door. 

Tip #3 – To clean your wood garage door, use distilled water and wipe it down microfiber cloth

Tip #4 – If your door is exposed to direct sunlight, UV protection can help extend its lifespan.

Tip #5 – Keep the bottom of your garage door clean and debris-free to prevent rot.

Tip #6 – Check the door hardware regularly to ensure it is tight and functioning properly.

Tip #7 – Inspect your door tracks and rollers for any damage or wear. Replace damaged parts as needed to keep your door operating smoothly

By following these tips, you can help ensure that your wood garage door will continue to look great and function well for years to come!
