Water seeping under the steel garage door is a nuisance and can damage the garage and its contents. Garage doors need periodic maintenance. If water is seeping through, so is cold damp air.
Garage is one of the essential rooms of every dwelling. Installing garage door weather stripping is the foremost thing you should do to retain its value and protect your home and valuables. Garage door seals or weather stripping are found around the edges of the door.

Weather stripping on windows and doors protects the home from air leaks while increasing comfort and saving energy. But as weather stripping ages, it loses its effectiveness. Weather stripping deteriorates due to age, friction, and exposure to the elements. It also can be damaged by people, pets, and pests.
Replacing worn or damaged weather stripping around exterior doors will save money on your energy bills. Take a piece of the old weather stripping with you to the home improvement store so you can easily match it. The weather stripping in newer doors fits in a groove in the door casing.
Even the most energy-efficient HVAC systems boasting all the latest technology can still cost you plenty if that conditioned air is wasted through leaky doors, windows or walls. One of our project houses had a door with a poor weather seal, leaving a substantial gap around its perimeter. Unlike an interior partition, this door separated the conditioned living space from an unfinished basement.
We offer a wide variety of garage door bottom seal track that can be used not only on garage doors, but on anything that needs a good quality weather seal. Using the correct garage door seal retainer on your project will then allow you to choose the correct weather seal from a wide variety of seals. We carry garage door bottom retainers in aluminum and PVC.
The easiest way to keep the heat inside and the cold out, is the bottom weatherseal also known as 'bottom rubber' or 'astragal'. If you can see a gap between the pavement under the door and seal, or if the seal is frayed, chewed or has rodent holes in it, it's time to replace that with a new piece. If rodents are a problem, we can also install special Rodent-block seals. If you need heavy-duty snow or weatherseals for commercial-grade applications, we have you covered there too with a wide range of bottom weatherseals including heavy duty rubber, foam stop, storm shields and brush inserts.
Outfitting your garage door with weatherstripping can lower your heating and cooling costs, prevent damage to the door and guard against unwanted moisture. Is the seal surrounding your garage door beginning to break down? You may need to replace the weatherstripping along the top, sides and bottom of the doors to improve insulation and gain additional benefits.
You can use weatherstripping in your home to seal air leaks around movable building components, such as doors or operable windows. Choose a type of weatherstripping that will withstand the friction, weather, temperature changes, and wear and tear associated with its location. For example, when applied to a door bottom or threshold, weatherstripping could drag on carpet or erode as a result of foot traffic. Weatherstripping in a window sash must accommodate the sliding of panes -- up and down, sideways, or out.
