A garage door is an important part of a home’s exterior. A garage door protects cars from being beaten by the weather, it protects the home’s security, it helps keep vermin and other unwanted guests out, and it also helps to regulate temperatures within the home. If there is a gap at the bottom of your garage door, all of these benefits are negated.
Gaps at the bottom of a garage door are often a result of poor adjustment of the garage door. Weather can also affect gaps, causing the garage door to contract and expand with cold and hot temperatures, respectively. An un-level garage floor can also attribute to a gap at the bottom of the garage door. Gaps can appear at the center of the door, on one or both sides, and can be big or small. If the slab of your garage door has shifted in any way, the only choice you have is to work on your garage door – because it’s pretty difficult to move a concreate slab!
A good seal to the bottom of a garage door is one of the best ways to keep out cold and hot air, as well as any type of critters or creepy-crawlies that you do not want inside your garage. There are many different options available for replacing the sealing at the bottom of your garage door. Once you find a good product, remove the old garage door weather seal. Follow the steps carefully for attaching the new garage door seal accordingly. If this does not help you achieve the goal of eliminating gaps at the bottom of your garage door, please contact HABPRO Garage Doors.
Often times, a proper and professional adjustment of the garage door is all it takes to remove gaps from the bottom of the garage door. Because this adjustment procedure requires loosening the nuts that attach the brackets to the garage door, and because your garage door likely weighs upwards of 800+ pounds, it is essential that you rely on professionals for this undertaking. Your safety is of highest importance.
