Weatherproofing Your Garage Door Seals
Weatherproofing your home, and in particular, your garage is a massive part of home upkeep. Rain, wind and even the sun can all cause untold damage to your property over time and one of the main hot spots is always your garage door. Your garage door is probably the single largest opening into your home and if it isn't well protected against the elements they can easily begin to cause problems. These problems, however, small can quickly turn into bigger ones and we all know that the bigger the problem the bigger the cost is to fix them!
So it is always worth taking a little time to research and take a proactive role in ensuring your garage door and its seals are protecting your property to the best of their ability. That way you can enjoy maximum peace of mind.
Weatherproofing your garage door seals usually involves very simple procedures such as adding or replacing the seal along the bottom of the door and the weatherstripping on the stop molding along the sides and top of the door. Depending on your door design you may also be able to add thin weatherstripping between the door panels to really seal and make the door as airtight (weatherproof) as possible. Read on below to find out about these processes in more detail.
