Wrapping up Summer in Your Garage:

By | Garage Floor, Garage Floor Coating, Garage Tips

The weather is getting cooler, which means it’s time to wrap up summer activities and prepare for fall. Before the holiday season takes over your schedule, there are a few things that need to be done after a summer of fun. Not sure where to start? Here’s what we suggest:

Put Away Summer Toys:

If there are bikes, balls and games littered around your yard, it’s time to clean up. Spend a day finding places to safely store everything. Families who accumulated new toys during the season might need to get creative in the garage! It’s the perfect place to store your summer items. Hang bikes from the ceiling or wall with heavy-duty hooks and install organized hanging or overhead storage to keep the floor clear.

Weather Stripping Garage Door:

If you’ve noticed water or dirt accumulating in your garage near the door, the problem is likely a worn weather seal. Most garage doors come with this bottom seal to keep water, wind and dirt at bay but are so big, that the strip wears down quickly. Re-sealing your garage door is simple and protects all its important contents during the months ahead.

Insulate Your Garage

Do you have an attached garage with an uninsulated door? It’s costing you money. Make your home as energy-efficient as possible with an upgrade. Even if you only insulate the garage door, it will significantly improve heat retention and could make a difference in your utility bill. Take full advantage of the improvement and do it now, before fall or winter.

Protect Your Floors:

Families will soon spend more time indoors and your garage will see more action. Whether you use the space for watching the games, working on your car or just some quiet time over the holidays–protect it. My Gorilla Garage flooring not only prevents spills from staining and covers unsightly cracks, but it makes the room much more inviting.

If you use your garage space for home maintenance projects, as a workshop, or if it serves as a center for outdoor family activities, it is an unpleasant place in the summer when not cooled.

There are several methods for an enjoyable garage depending on your climate. Areas with mild summers get away with basic ventilation, but if your summers are hot and muggy, a full-blown air-conditioning unit is the most effective solution. Read More
