Garage Door Weather Stripping – Over time, garage doors expand and contract with the changing climate. The seal around the garage door expands and contracts, too. If you can see the light entering the garage around the edges of the door, that means that the hot and cold air also has a leak. You can set the seal without having to pay to hire a technician.
The first step is about sealing the faces. Locate the adjustable brackets on each side of the garage door. Use a socket and ratchet to loosen the adjustment screw slightly. This is the bolt that is connected to the garage door, not the screw that is screwed into the wall of your garage. Press the door outwards until the gap closes. Make sure you are pressing as close to the support as possible; This will help to prevent dents from the garage door. Tighten the quickly adjust bolt. Turn off all the lights and examine the seal. If there is still daylight coming through, adjust in immediately.
The next step is sealing the bottom. Check the weather strip on the bottom of the door. If the weatherstrip is cracked or damaged, you will be able to see light coming in under the door. Return to weatherstrip is cracked or damaged. If the concrete under the door has settled substantially, causing a large gap, purchase oversized weather stripping to fill the additional gap. To ensure an airtight seal, install a threshold in the concrete.
