Wood garage doors need special care, as moisture is their worst enemy, and any degree of swelling, rotting and splitting can necessitate costly repairs or replacement due to failing insulation and working performance. A swollen garage door can stall or get stuck during operation. An unprotected wooden garage door that has become impregnated with moisture can suffer from rot, mildew and succumb to cracks, holes and even termites.
Prevention And Preservation Of Your Garage Doors
To preserve the working quality and like new appearance and condition of your wooden garage doors, you have two maintenance options to choose from:
- For stain-grade wooden garage doors: Stain your wooden garage doors 1 to 2 times a year.
- For paint-grade wooden garage doors: Paint your garage doors when ever they show signs of wear and tear, paint peeling, bubbles in the paint or swelling.
Staining can be as easy as spraying or brushing the appropriate wood stain product on your clean garage doors. Painting, on the other hand, requires that any old paint be carefully removed, the doors properly primed, and then painted.
Other Wood Garage Door Considerations
Wooden garage doors are often the most expensive due not only to their more labor intensive manufacturing and expensive materials, but also their heavier weight. The greater weight of wooden garage doors necessitates that a stronger garage door opener be used along with heavier duty hardware that should be installed for the doors safe operation. Installation can also take longer, and requires that qualified professionals perform the installation rather than the homeowner. This is to ensure the wooden garage doors will work and stay safely in place, as well as last longer for the home owner's use.
