Garage Door Weather Stripping






What is weather stripping?

The installation of weather stripping around your garage door is a quick and easy way to provide additional insulation. It will also help keep your garage dry when it rains or snows. Weather stripping provides a finished look to your garage and can also help keep out insects and other unwanted pests.



Why do I need it?

There is often a gap between the door frame and the door itself. Weather stripping helps to close this gap and stop air from escaping the home. For many homeowners, the garage serves a storage space and installing weather stripping can provide an additional layer of security between the elements and your belongings. Over time, the presence of excess moisture in the garage may lead to the growth of mold and mildew. You can also install a threshold on the ground to eliminate the space between the garage door and the floor.

Weather Stripping Maintenance

Most weather stripping is made of plastic or PVC. It will not rot or split like wood trim. It should not crack or warp either; however, it may dry out over time and become somewhat brittle. A handyman can replace it relatively easily.
