Weather Seal

If you don't have any weather seal or weather stripping on your garage doors, you might have gaps between the frame and the door that are big enough to fit your hand through. This is the same as leaving the windows inside of your home cracked open an inch or two. You certainly wouldn't leave your windows or doors open when you are trying to conserve heating and cooling power. Why would you leave gaps in your garage when there is an easy and cheap solution?

Why Do You Need Garage Door Weather Seal?

These days, most people want to conserve energy as much as possible. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency advises homeowners to seal up drafts around doors in the home. In fact, this is one of the easiest and least expensive ways to make your house more energy-efficient.

Garage doors aren't any different. Leaving your garage door unsealed can be just like throwing away money because of increased utility bills. Leaving drafts unsealed also makes it a lot harder to make your house or garage comfortable. If you happen to use your garage as a workroom, you will be glad to know that this is one very effective way to help control the temperature. On the other hand, a sealed and insulated garage door can help keep your entire home more comfortable and cheaper to heat and cool.

If you have an attached garage, you can certainly improve the energy efficiency of your entire house by adding weather seal. In the winter, your hot water heater won't have to work as hard if you keep it stored in your garage. Even if your house has a detached garage, you will find that your garage will stay cleaner and more temperate with a good seal. This seal will keep leaves, water, dust, and even small critters from coming in from the outside. Of course, if you plan to heat and cool your garage, this type of sealant is critical.

When garage doors are new, they may come with effective sealant. Over time, these durable rubber or vinyl strips may begin to crack or harden, so they can't effectively do their job any longer. Replacing this rubber seal is a fairly easy DIY garage door repair. Even home and business owners who are reluctant to tackle a job like replacing a torsion spring should consider saving money by handling this job on their own. The task really shouldn't even take an hour to complete, and you can enjoy the payoff of a cleaner garage and better energy efficiency right away.

Different Types of Weather Stripping and Seals for Garage Doors

There are many different kinds of seals and strips available to repair or replace worn or damaged parts. Garages can get sealed on the sides, top, and bottom.

These are some examples of garage door weather stripping products that we stock:
