Protecting Your Garage (and everything inside) From the Elements

Your garage is the perfect place to store your cars, any tools or equipment, and the like. It’s also the cover that you need to keep your car free from the Wisconsin snow and make it easy to store your bike when the summer rain hits. Even so, there’s always a chance of the elements finding their way into your garage. With that being said, there are a few things that you can do to 1) minimize the chances of the elements making their way into your garage and 2) ensure your belongings are safe in the chance that the elements do make it into the garage.  The team at Garage Interiors, the Top Rated Local® Wisconsin Garage Storage system provider, is here to cover a few of the things that can help with the elements making their way into your garage. Let’s dive in. 

Weatherstripping

One of the first things that you can do to minimize the chances of the elements making their way into your garage is by checking the weatherstripping on any doors that go outside. If the weatherstipping has cracked or rotted, there’s a really good chance of water and snow making its way inside the garage. Even though it may seem like a small space where very little moisture could get through, it most definitely adds up.

Check Your Garage Door

Weatherstripping can make a significant difference in whether or not the elements make their way into your garage, but it’s certainly not the only thing that you need to be aware of. Your garage door could also be the culprit letting the elements into your garage. For that reason, you should check your garage door as well and see if there are any cracks or rotted wood that could be the reason that this is happening. If you notice that there are some impurities or damages to your garage door, it may be time for a replacement.

Invest in Storage

In the case that the elements do make their way into the garage, the last thing that you want is for your belongings to get damaged. The best way to ensure that your belongings don’t get damaged is by investing in storage that is waterproof. Garage Interiors offers a wide selection of garage storage systems, including shelving and cabinets, that will keep your belongings off the floor where they could come in contact with water. Though it may seem like an upfront cost, the initial cost of storage systems is so much more affordable than having to replace various items damaged by the elements that made it into your garage.
