If you have garage doors in your home, there’s a good chance they have some rust on them. Over time, this happens to almost all homeowners. Regardless of what climate you live in, your garage doors are susceptible to rust simply because they get wet from time to time. The environment can wreak havoc on your garage doors. Between rain, sleet, and snow, the odds of rust building up on your garage doors are good. Even if you perform routine maintenance on your garage doors, they will eventually succumb to rust and corrosion. Here, we will discuss some of the common causes of rust on your garage doors.

Do You Live in an Area with High Levels of Humidity?
Depending on where you live, the weather could be the cause of your rusty garage entrance doors. Humidity is one of the leading causes of rust. When humidity levels spike, they can hasten the rusting process. This means that garage doors that are already prone to rusting will do so even faster. With so much moisture on the surface of your garage doors, you should expect a certain amount of rust. Of course, if you take good care of your garage doors, you may be able to extend their lives despite the humid weather. However, at some point, you’ll need to give in and consider investing in new garage doors for your home.
Exposure to Water Will Eventually Lead to Rust Buildup
If you live in a city where it rains a lot, it’s no surprise your garage doors are getting rusty. The same is true for any other water sources. For example, if you power wash your house a few times a year, you’ll be exposing your garage doors to even worse rust. This kind of thing, when combined with the rain, can do a real job on your doors. This is why we suggest that you reach out to one of our agents to discuss a garage door installation. We can come out and look to see how bad the damage is. While installing your new garage doors, we can also point out some of the things you can do to slow down the rusting process.
Are Your Current Garage EntranceDoors of High Quality?
Some of our customers are surprised to learn that there are different levels of quality when it comes to garage entrance doors. If you buy the cheapest garage doors available, you shouldn’t expect them to last as long as high-quality doors. For example, some of the less expensive garage doors are extremely thin. This means it takes a lot less time for the rust to eat through the doors and the joints. The same is true if the doors are made out of a poor quality material. Our technicians can show you some new garage doors that are of high quality. If you’re going to make this sort of investment, you want to make sure you buy the best. Your wallet will thank you years from now.
