Seal Your Garage From the Elements With Garage Door Weather Stripping
Anyone living in Canada knows that the weather can be unpredictable sometimes. Especially in winter, the last thing you want is snow, moisture, and other debris entering your garage.
At Toronto Garage Door Repair, we’re more than just your garage door repair service. Our weather stripping services can help seal your garage from the elements. If you’re thinking about replacing or installing garage door weather stripping, we’re the team for the job.
What is Garage Door Weather Stripping?
Garage door weather stripping is designed to help fill in gaps or areas around garage doors to prevent water, dust, moisture, dirt, and other debris from entering the garage. Even though it’s a garage and you’ll likely have dirt in it occasionally, having the door sealed can prevent excessive amounts from getting inside.
When you want to install a weather strip, there are a few materials that you can choose from. Each has its own benefits, and at Toronto Garage Door Repair, we’ll talk you through the options and help you choose the best one for your home.
Vinyl Weather Strip
Vinyl is one of the materials we can use to weather strip your garage door. We only use the highest-quality vinyl to ensure that we properly seal your garage door. This door seal is fantastic because it’s highly durable, can tolerate constant sunlight, and is damage-resistant.
When you hire us to apply weather stripping to your garage door, we’ll ensure that we take proper measurements and cut the vinyl so it’s the perfect fit for your specific door. Everything is customized, and that is what makes us the right team for the job. When the vinyl weather stripping is fitted correctly, you can avoid replacing it for a longer time.
Our other top material choice for garage door weather stripping is rubber. It’s similar to vinyl in that it’s durable, damage-resistant, and will last for years before needing to be replaced. Even though they have many similar properties, rubber tends to be slightly cheaper than vinyl.
Just like with vinyl, we’ll measure and cut the rubber weather stripping to ensure it’s the right fit for your garage door. When it fits correctly, you won’t have to worry about anything seeping through the cracks into the garage.
Benefits of Garage Door Weather Stripping
Most garage doors will come with weather stripping. Whether it’s in excellent or poor condition is another story. Not everyone has weather stripping on their garage doors because they don’t always see the purpose.
Even though there’s a lot of traffic in the garage bringing things from outside in, the benefits of adding this protective barrier are abundant. The main advantages of garage door weather stripping are:
Improved Energy Efficiency
When you have a seal to prevent energy from escaping the garage, you can keep the garage and the rest of your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter while keeping energy costs low.
Weather and Dirt Protection
Garage door weather stripping will prevent moisture from weather, dirt, and debris from entering your garage. This will prevent mold from forming and damage to anything inside your garage.
Maintain a Comfortable Temperature
For those who hang out in their garages or work in them, sealing any gaps can help keep them at a more comfortable temperature throughout the year. With the wind unable to get inside, you’ll feel comfier when in the garage.
Weather stripping is very durable. When you install weather stripping on your garage door, it can help protect your garage from the elements, which will make them last longer than they originally would.
So, if you want to improve your garage door’s durability, improve your energy efficiency, and keep your garage cleaner overall, weather stripping is what you need.
We also can install a specialized type of weather stripping to keep mice out of your garage.
How Garage Door Weather Stripping is Installed
When you hire our professional staff at Toronto Garage Door Repair, we provide efficient and high-quality weather stripping to your garage. Our proven method works well and allows us to finish the job as quickly as possible without compromising on quality.
Once we set a time, our team will arrive at your home with all the necessary supplies. We’ll wipe down the areas where we’ll apply the weather stripping to ensure no dirt or other debris is in the way.
Then, we’ll measure the areas where we’ll place the weather stripping and cut the vinyl or rubber into the right sizes. We’ll use a strong adhesive on the back of the weather stripping and apply it to your garage door.
Once everything is on the garage door, we’ll trim any excess if necessary. Before we consider it a job well done, we’ll perform a seal test. We test the bottom seal and the rest by lightly spraying water at it to see if anything gets inside your garage. You
If nothing gets through, you’re good to go. On the other hand, if we need to make adjustments, we’ll do so as soon as possible to ensure you’re satisfied with your garage door seal.
