Garage Door Weatherstripping
Does your garage feel drafty?
Garage doors usually come with a bottom seal that helps keep out nuisances like mice, debris, dust, and water.
The seals also help regulate the temperature inside your garage but deteriorate over time. Worn seals leave your home more vulnerable to temperature fluctuations, and they can have a negative effect on your energy bill.
At Precision, we install high-quality weather sealing to protect your home and garage from outside elements.
Is garage door weatherstripping worth it?
Weather seals are especially important to have when you live in an area that gets very hot, cold, or windy. Consider these perks when deciding if it’s right for your home.
Your garage is better insulated with weatherstripping – If you deal with large temperature fluctuations or live in an area with extreme highs and lows, you may find that garage door weatherstripping helps lower your electric bill by regulating the temperature inside your garage.
Seals help your door work smoothly – While garage doors protect your home, weather seals protect your garage door. They act a bit like a “cushion” that rests on your door’s closing surface. You might find that weather seals increase the longevity of your door and the materials around it (and lead to fewer garage door repairs down the line).
Weatherstripping prevents critters from making a home in your garage – There are often small gaps along the edge of garage doors that make the perfect entry point for vermin and bugs. Weatherstripping covers those gaps and helps keep your garage free of uninvited guests.
It also helps keeps water & moisture out – On top of causing water damage, too much moisture in the garage can result in mold growth or slick surfaces. Weatherstripping helps reduce the amount of moisture that gets inside.
How to tell if it’s time to replace your seals
It’s a good idea to take a look at your weatherstripping at least once or twice per year. When you inspect it, be sure your garage door is closed while examining the edges.
Look for any of these signs:
- Cracks, holes, or any other obvious signs of wear and tear
- Drafts that you can feel coming through around the edges of your door
- Puddles of water near your door’s bottom edge, or finding that some of your items feel damp
- The appearance of rust on some of your door’s metal components
If your garage door seals have seen better days, call Precision to come install high-quality weatherstripping and protect your home.
