The Benefits of Garage Door Maintenance
Well maintained wood garage doors add a luxurious look to any property, but when neglected, they can spoil the curb appeal of your home. Fortunately, it’s possible to keep your garage doors looking like new, even after many years, especially cedar garage doors, which offer benefits over other types of wood due to their natural tannic acid (a preservative) content.

Regularly Applying a Protective Finish Keeps Wood Doors Looking Their Best
All it takes is the routine application of a penetrating finish every few years to preserve the beauty of your wood garage doors. However, a protective coating offers more than looks. The benefits of wood garage door maintenance go beyond simply upholding the appearance of your oak, redwood, or cedar garage doors.
Why Maintain Your Wood Garage Doors?
