On the sides and top of the garage door, PVC Stop Molding is installed to the wood trim. When the garage door is closed, the sections of the door are intended to be flush against the frame of the garage. This is not, however, usually the case. When you install PVC Stop Molding, the flap of this type of seal will press against the outside of the garage door, closing the gap between the door and the garage frame. Another type of seal is a Reverse Angle Jamb Seal. The clip portion of this seal attaches to a piece of angle iron. The flap, like the PVC Stop Molding, closes the gap between the garage door and the garage frame. There are also some types of seals for the top of the garage door that install to the top of the top section. When the garage door closes, the Flap Top Seal closes against the garage frame.


Seal a garage door gap, Part 2 Here's how to deal with gaps caused by an uneven bottom door panel or sunken concrete. The easiest, but least elegant, method is to install several pieces of bottom seal retainer and rubber gasket in the gap areas. Just measure the thickness of your bottom panel and buy sections of seal retainer and gasket from a garage parts supplier (garagedoorpartsusa.com is one online source). Mount the retainer to the bottom panel wherever there's a gap. Finish the job by sealing the top edge of the retainer with caulk and then paint to match the door. This fix works on wood and metal doors. If you have a wood door and want a cleaner look, remove the existing bottom seal and scribe/cut the bottom panel to match the contour of the concrete floor. Seal the freshly cut wood with wood sealer. Then remount the bottom seal. Slide a section of retainer and gasket onto the bottom edge of the garage door. Tilt it until the rubber gasket touches the concrete floor. Then screw the retainer in place.


Measure the garage door for the seal Start by measuring the width, height and thickness of your garage door. You’ll need those measurements to buy garage door stop with a built-in sealing lip and a new bottom seal. While you’re at the home center, buy V-strip weather stripping, a tube of exterior caulk and a small can of wood sealer (if you have a wooden door). And for extra sealing power, buy a rubber threshold (one choice is the Storm Shield Garage Door Threshold; about $53 for 10 ft. 6 in. at garagedoorpartsusa.com).

The bottom rubber gasket, or astragal, on your garage door may be something you pay little attention to as you go about your business. The garage door gasket not only protects the bottom of the garage door from the floor each time it comes down, but it also serves as a garage door seal. When the astragal is worn, tiny openings occur that allow dirt and debris to blow into the garage. A worn bottom rubber gasket makes it easier for rainwater to seep in as well.


There are also various Garage Door Seal Retainers that you can install around the sides and top of your garage door. You can then slide Vinyl Seal, Rubber Seal, or Brush Seal into the garage door seal retainers. The advantage to using the retainer and the inserts rather than the one-piece weather seals is that changing your seal insert is a lot easier than changing the entire seal.


Remove the old garage door seal Lift the door just enough that the garage door track doesn’t get in the way of the weather seal, then slide out the old rubber bulb (Photo 1). You may need to pry the track ends open with a flat screwdriver if they’ve been crimped. If it’s especially stubborn, cut it and remove it in pieces.


Bottom Seal Retainers on a garage door serve the same purpose. Like the top and side retainers, the bottom retainers come in various shapes and dimensions. Depending on the shape of the slots in the bottom retainers, you can slide inserts (vinyl or rubber) with T-Shaped or Bead-Shaped ends onto the retainer. There is also the Bubble Seal that slides into the retainers.
