Jammed Doors: Do you feel like your garage door has turned into a block of ice and wouldnt move? Cold weather can do this to your door. The moisture during the winter season causes the wood on the door to swell and also freezes the tracks. The solution is to increase the heat in the garage for about 30 minutes to loosen the tracks and the door as well. The heat will take away the moisture. If there is no heating equipment in the garage use a blow drier or vacuum blower to do the job. After opening the door clear the ice and water that has collected beneath the door.
Address the Noise: Old garage doors make a loud creaking noise alerting your entire neighborhood that youve arrived home. Noisy doors can be easily fixed by simply lubricating them. You should lubricate the tracks and the sides of the door every 6 months. Do this especially before the winter months arrive. Take some time off to clean and lubricate the door.
Well maybe its time to get your wife off your back and get it cleared out. Then earn some brownie points by fitting some modern garage flooring. With todays modern materials you can cover up that old concrete floor very inexpensively to give an almost showroom finish. Most garage floors will be ready to take on many types of flooring with the minimum of preparation. Unless you have a very uneven surface a quick sweep out maybe fill in any cracks and you should be good to go. Anything worse such as large holes or lumps should be dealt with as these will affect the finished look of any new flooring put on top. There is whole range of interlocking garage floor tile available in a wide choice of colors. These are constructed from PVC and are fitted in a matter of hours and dont involve any adhesives. This is a safe non slip surface that is resistant to oil petrol and many other chemicals. Low maintenance very durable and comfortable underfoot.
There is so many different uses people have for their garages today other than parking their cars. Its maybe just for storing old house hold junk or somewhere to work on a do it yourself project. Well whatever it is one thing most garages have in common will be a cold hard and uninviting concrete floor. If the floor is very old it will no doubt be cracked and broken and giving off high amounts of dust that just gets everywhere. On top of this add stains from engine oil leaks most people will be glad if the floor is covered up by a load of junk.
Garage door styles are not likely to be a hot topic of conversation but with so many to choose from today they could well be!

Take a good look at your house. Does it have arches and curves or is it boxy and straight-lined? Match the garage door to the home! If your home features wood trim or panels a matching garage door would be an excellent choice.
