If you are considering getting a custom wooden garage door, here are a few tips to maintaining that beautiful custom look.
Inspect Your Garage Door.
Couple of times a year you always want to inspect the wood of your garage door. Houston area is known for termites, so you want to make sure there are no issues in that department. You also want to make sure there is no chipping or cracking of the wood.
Cleaning Your Garage Door.
Wooden garage doors should be cleaned at least a couple of times a year. A buildup of moisture or dirt on your wood garage door can cause damage like warping and bending over time. Use a wood safe cleanser if the dirt and grime is caked on there, but usually, a light washing off with a garden hose will suffice.
Keep It Sealed.
About every year you should re-seal your wooden garage door. The Houston heat and humidity can damage the outer wood of your garage door. Also, the Houston rain and humidity can get soaked up into the wood, causing the wooden door to be heavier than it should, leading to stress on the garage door springs. A penetrating oil-based wood stain is usually the best for constantly moving garage doors because they are durable and won’t peel or crack the way a film finish would when exposed to frequent movement.
A wooden garage door can give your home that extra little something you have been looking for to make your home stand out.
