Garage Door Weatherstripping
Professional Garage Door Weatherstripping Services
When new garage doors are installed, they typically come with a weather seal around the edges. The seal helps keep the outside elements – including weather, pests, moisture, and more – from getting into your garage.
The seal can deteriorate over time and become less effective at doing its job, leaving your home vulnerable to temperature fluctuations and more.
At Precision, we install high-quality weatherstripping to protect your garage door and home.
Is Weatherstripping Necessary for Garage Doors?
Even if you don’t live in an area with a lot of snow, ice, wind, or other extreme weather, it’s important to make sure your weatherstripping is in good shape. Here’s why:
Weatherstripping helps keep the outside, outside.
Weather seals make it harder for cold (or hot) weather to make it inside your home, which helps regulate indoor temperatures and lower your energy bill.
It prevents uninvited guests from entering your space.
Critters like mice, bugs, squirrels, and others often like to make garages their homes. Weather seals help keep them outside.
Weather seals protect against excess moisture.
Moisture in the garage can lead to mold growth or create slippery surfaces. Weatherstripping helps keep moisture to a minimum.
Is It Time for a Replacement?
How long your garage door weatherstripping lasts depends a lot on your environment, but you can typically expect it to be in good shape for at least two years.
Here are a few signs it may be time for a replacement.
- You notice visible signs of wear like cracks, gaps, tears, or fraying
- The seal has become stiff and lost its flexibility
- You notice an increase in your energy bill, or an increase in pests in your garage
- Water has been leaking in (in this case, you may find puddle around your garage door opening)
We recommend checking your garage door weatherstripping at least once or twice per year to make sure it’s still working properly.
The easiest way to maintain your weather seals and other components is to schedule a yearly Tune-Up which includes professional lubrication services, a 25-point safety inspection, a balance test, and a full inspection report.
