Get your garage ready for the winter

Now, we know that winter isn’t here yet, but if you blink your eyes, it’s right on your doorstep, and here at ABi Garage Doors Ltd, we want to make sure you are ready. There are many things you need to do to prepare your garage for the winter months, so we have come up with a few preparation tips to help you out.

Non-slip floor

Accidents always happen. It doesn’t matter how old or how sensible you are, they happen. So to be precautious and minimise the chances of these accidents happening, we suggest you have non-slip flooring installed in your garage. This will reduce the chance of you slipping, which would lead to further injuries such as broken hips or head injuries.

Inspect and replace weather stripping

Keeping your garage warm in the winter is vital, and if it isn’t something you have thought about, make it your priority. Not only would it mean your garage is a comfortable, relaxing environment all year round, but it would save you a lot of money and make sure your items are kept in the best condition possible. Weather stripping on your garage door is responsible for keeping out the cold air and harsh weather – if you see any tears or cracks in the weather stripping, replace it.

Put summer tools away and replace with winter tools

Help yourself out massively by getting your winter tools out and store them in an easily-accessible place, it saves you from looking for a shovel for 20 minutes in the freezing cold when you need it most. It’s important to organise your tools in the easiest way possible for yourself, you want the ice scraper handy for those frosty mornings.

It’s also vital that you store your summer tools in a way that make them easily accessible for you in spring – don’t just throw them in a cupboard.
