The effect of bad weather


The winter months are when a garage can be particularly convenient, in terms of being able to store your vehicle out of the cold. However, bad weather can have a damaging effect on garage doors resulting in costly repairs. Here is some of the most common damages caused by winter weather. 

Water damage

Unfortunately the weather in Britain can be extremely wet and cold, this puts many properties at risk of water damage. Water can not only effect the appearance of the garage door, but if the door hasn’t been properly sealed, water can seep in between the gaps and damage the mechanics of the door.   At Bradford Garage Doors our experienced garage door engineers take a great deal of pride in their workmanship, installing a durable modern garage door that will withstand the wettest of winters.  

Door freeze

If there is any water gathering at the bottom of the garage door, it is highly possible for a poorly fitted garage door to freeze shut in very cold temperatures.  In unfortunate situations like these, the only option to release the door is for the ice to melt.  With over 30 years' experience in the garage door industry, we expertly install each garage door to ensure the perfect fit, and are also able to fit roller garage doors behind arched garage openings creating a seamless appearance but still enforcing a sturdy seal to prevent water pooling.  

Opener issues

A garage door that is difficult to open may have been installed unevenly. There has been extensive development in automatic technology for garage doors in recent years, the engineers with our Bradford Garage Doors team are highly experienced and trained to install and repair the latest technology.
