Wood garage doors are most sought out for their natural beauty, elegance and curb appeal.
What can happen?
Rain damage can cause cupping, dry rot, expansion contraction and can soak up water.
What can you do?
Seal up cracks:
One of the first things that you should do to get your garage ready for the rainy season is to use caulk around any cracks or windows since that would prevent water from coming in. If you get in the habit of looking for and sealing any cracks twice a year then you will save a lot of money in garage repair costs over the course of the time!
Make sure your garage door is finished via paint or stain:
Natural wood garage doors are beautiful. They provide strength and natural insulating properties and require regular maintenance to keep them protected from outside elements. We recommend repainting or retaining your garage door every 1-2 years depending on exposure and stained garage doors would need a top coat applied just as often.
