Fixing those cracks and gaps in the frame and paneling will also help out against those pesky mice as well as keeping it warmer.

Garage Door Locks
If your garage door is manually pulled up, let us make sure you have a secure lock on it. It’s no secret, if you have a garage you will store things inside of it. Criminals know that and usually pick garage doors as easy access points.
Your garage door should be a second layer of defense to the regular door inside of it that leads to your home. So many people leave the entry door from their garage unlocked because they think no one will be able to get into the garage, which is usually untrue. It is fairly easy for a criminal to pry up a garage door or even just break the lock to get inside.
A high security lock on your garage door can give you peace of mind by making it much tougher for someone to break in.
