Garage Door In The Winter

Our expert technicians are committed to making sure that your garage is a secure element of your home, acting as a vital defense against intruders. One effective service is to install a garage door weather stripping or seal, which not only enhances safety and warmth but also helps save on electricity costs.

What is Garage Door Weatherstripping?

Garage Door Weatherstripping

Imagine a garage door seal on both sides and at the bottom of your garage entrance. This comprehensive sealing protects against external weather. In California, our adept technicians can efficiently install two types of garage door seals. The first is the bottom-of-the-door weather stripping, and the second is the garage door side seal both that safeguard your garage from external influences.

What Does Weather Stripping Prevent?

Pests in your home due to not weatherstripping

Weatherstripping is a crucial addition to your garage door and home, protecting a range of potential problems.

  1. Pests 

When a technician comes to your home, they are sealing the sides of your garage door and putting in a bottom door seal underneath the garage door threshold with a threshold seal, which vitally will prevent pests from entering your garage floor and into your home. Widespread pests in these areas are cockroaches, ants, and rodents. When there is no weatherstripping, these pests can sneak in through the crevices and cracks underneath the garage. Of course, we do not want that; therefore, weatherstripping is essential to keeping those pests out of your garage and home, especially since pests like rodents and cockroaches carry diseases and can affect your child or pet. 

  1.  Cool or Hot Air

Another benefit of weatherstripping is that it keeps your garage nice and cozy. The garage door bottom weather stripping and exterior door weather stripping create a complete seal around your whole garage, which keeps cool or hot air in the garage. This means that in the winter, your garage will stay warm against cold air and from the heat escaping from the house into the garage, and in the summer, the cool air will seep into the garage, too, and keep the garage cool. This is one of the best benefits of weatherstripping your garage door because no one likes to come home and get out of their car to freezing or scorching temperatures. 

  1.  Electricity

We mentioned that the hot or cool air will stay in your garage, but the added benefit is that you save on electricity. When you do not have weatherstripping installed on your garage door, that leaves all the elements to get into the garage, causing it to get overly hot or cold, and your thermometer in your home recognizes this. Without weatherstripping, your house overcompensates for the extra temperature, and your house tries to heat the house more or cool it down. Therefore, when you install weatherstripping on your garage door, your electricity bill drops substantially. What other reason do you need besides that?

How is Weatherstripping Installed?

How to Install Weatherstripping

The service involves sliding a rubber seal, matching the length of the garage door's bottom onto the door itself, creating a snug fit. The exterior vinyl trim is then secured to the side of the garage door.
