What Is Garage Door Weatherstripping?
Weatherstripping fills in the gap between the garage door and its frame. Without weatherstripping, cracks around the door cause warm air to leak out in the winter and cool air to leak out in the summer. This makes your heating or air conditioning system work harder and can cost you money on your energy bills. Missing, worn out, cracked, or torn weatherstripping does not do the job that it is supposed to do, and this can add up quickly in utility costs. According to the Department of Energy, sealing cracks around your doors and windows can save you as much as 20% on your heating and cooling bills.
What Are the Types of Garage Door Weatherstripping?
Most types of weatherstripping consist of some type of firm base that attaches to the frame of the garage door. It has a flexible component that compresses to fill in the gaps. Popular weatherstripping materials include plastic and metal. There are advantages and disadvantages to both of these materials. Plastic resists corrosion, but it is not as durable as metal. Weatherstripping is available that attaches securely to the bottom of the garage door and presses against the floor when it is closed to form a tight seal. Bottom garage door weatherstripping typically slides into channels that are a part of the garage door itself.
How Is Garage Door Weatherstripping Installed?
Installing garage door weather stripping involves removing any old weatherstripping that is present with a pry bar. You must then clean the surface where the new weatherstripping will be installed. Next, the weatherstripping must be cut to size so that it makes a tight seal and perfect fit.
A header piece is installed along the top of the garage door frame on the outside. Next, a wood strip is installed that allows the weatherstripping to be nailed to it. Most garages are concrete, so this requires special power tools and equipment. Finally, the weatherstripping must be trimmed so that it does not catch when opening and closing the door. You must get a perfect fit so that the opening is sealed properly and does not interfere with the operation of the door. That is why it is important to call an experienced professional for the job.
