Port Angeles Garage Door Weather Stripping
When your garage door is closed, do you feel a slight draft seeping through the bottom? Garage door weather stripping is likely something you don’t think of or inspect while performing garage door maintenance tasks, but this piece is a crucial aspect of your garage door’s performance.
The weather seal on the bottom of your garage door helps protect the contents stored in your garage, keeps pests and debris out of your house and improves your home’s energy efficiency. With regular exposure to harsh elements and variable temperatures, unfortunately, your weather stripping can wear, leaving your garage door exposed.
Why You Need Garage Door Weather Stripping
Every garage door needs quality weather stripping — even though it may seem like a small piece of hardware at the bottom and sides of your garage door, it helps keep your home protected from a variety of damages. The weather stripping helps keeps out rain and snow while forming a tight seal between your garage door and the floor. This seal prevents cool air, insects and other vermin from entering your garage, just like the seals around your windows and doors do.
Signs of a Damaged Weather Seal
Due to constant exterior exposure, the vinyl or rubber materials of your weather seal can become damaged, either shrinking, stiffening or cracking over time. To easily determine whether your garage door needs a new weather seal, check for the following:
- Light peeking from underneath the closed garage door
- Soft breezes from outside flowing into your garage
- Signs of obvious damage like flaking, warping or missing pieces
- Puddles of water forming around or near the base of your garage door
- Rust around the edges or surface of the door
If you have an insulated garage door, make sure the quality of its weather seal is intact. Weather stripping that’s in poor condition can greatly impact the effectiveness of your garage door product, increasing utility costs.
