The winter weather can take a toll on your garage door. Icy rain can pool underneath the door seal, causing it to freeze to the ground. Below-zero temperatures can freeze the metal springs and pulleys, which can cause the door to operate more slowly and make more noise than it ordinarily would. And the cold weather can add to the wear and tear on the door. To protect your garage door from the harsh winter weather, it's a good idea to do a complete tune-up of your door in the fall.
