Thanks To You

Named after the famed gathering of the Puritans, pilgrims, and in some cases Native Americans with a celebration of comradery, understanding, and friendship in the early 1600s, Plymouth in the modern day, Massachusetts became forever linked with the holiday of Thanksgiving. The Thanksgiving celebrated a good harvest after the common tradition of fasting. In 1941, the United States formalized the Thanksgiving holiday to be celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November.

Prepare Your Garage for Winter

It’s November and the fall season is in full session. As the temperatures start to cool, now is a great time to prepare for the cold, by winterizing your home and for that matter your garage door.

Check Garage Door Insulation

Even if you have an insulated garage door, insulation can lose its effect over time. It’s important to check on it before winter is in full gear. Insulation degrades over time, and garage door seals and weatherstripping can lose their ability to keep out cold air and moisture.

The first thing you need to do is making sure that anything that could get damaged by the wet or cold is packaged away and possibly moved somewhere into the house during the winter months. This is easy to do when you use something like a cardboard moving box, just so that you don’t have a problem with different items that are stored in your garage when you get to the spring. Then you need to look into insulating your garage properly.

Typically foam board is the most common type of insulation for garage doors working for nearly all types. Insulation is measured in r-value with a higher value representing a better solution. Typically the foam board has anywhere between an r-value from 3 to 6. If your garage door is steel, you can use any type of insulation.
If you use your garage or carport for more than just storage, perhaps as a gym or studio, and are planning on spending time in there over the winter, then you can always have a heating system installed. You can visit somewhere like this site to find HVAC experts who can discuss your options with you.

Perform Routine Maintenance
