How to Add the Garage Door Bottom Seal

Garage Door Bottom Seal – If you have a wooden garage door or a metal garage door, having a rubber gasket on the bottom of the door is important to make up any space between the bottom of the door and the floor. A properly installed seal will prevent water from entering your garage during heavy rains or melting snow. Installing a rubber gasket is a great do-it-yourself project for the average homeowner.

Lift the garage door to a comfortable working height, either manually or using the electric garage door opener. Measure the width of the garage door with a tape measure. Select a set of joints long enough to fit a single strip across the width of the door. Remove the seal from the bottom of the door by pulling the nails with a hammer. Clean the bottom edge of the door with mineral spirits and a cotton cloth. Cut the replacement length seal with a pair of sharp scissors or a knife.

Place the seal against the bottom of the door from one end. Drive a nail or screw through the board and into the original hole if possible. Work through the door until you completely install the new seal. If the door did not have a seal, apply the nails or screws approximately every 6 inches. Use galvanized roofing nails or metal screws. Often, these fasteners are included with the seal.
