What are the advantages of replacing my garage door bottom seal? What are the advantages of replacing my garage door bottom seal?
A nonworking garage door bottom seal can be costly. A seal that is chewed up or falling apart lets air in and heat out equally well, so replacing it can reduce heating and cooling costs. The way to tell if you need a new gasket is simply to hold a match near the bottom of your garage door and if it blows out, it's time to replace the garage door seal. Then, there's the weather factor, if you have heavy rain or snow and the seal is not tight, then you are inviting moisture to join your car or tools or whatever you may have in your garage or to the garage itself, leading to corrosion or water damage which can be costly, difficult, or perhaps impossible to repair. Replacing the door seal can aid in preventing this altogether.
