Garage Door Installation and Garage Door Seals

How to Ensure your Garage Stays Dry and Warm This Winter

By Mark J. Donovan

Going up to our lake home tonight to inspect the new garage door that I had recently installed on our detached garage. With the new garage door installed, and the new gutters that I recently installed along the roof eaves, I expect I will now have a water tight and critter free garage.

Before winter hits, you too may want to inspect your garage door for proper operation and a tight bottom seal. Make sure the bottom seal is not ripped or damaged in any way. If it is, replace it to ensure an air tight and water resistant seal. Installing a garage door bottom seal is easy to do and cost less than $20.

Also make sure the sides and top of the garage door fit snugly up against the garage door trim. There is weatherstripping that you can buy and easily install around the exterior perimeter of the garage door to ensure an air tight seal.
