A garage door gap can cause a host of problems, especially during the colder months. If your garage door leaves a gap at the bottom, this is an invitation for rodents and insects to make a new home inside your garage. A gap under the garage door will also allow cold draughts, melted snow and rainwater to enter your garage while the warmth from your home escapes through that same garage door gap. To keep unwanted pests out of your garage and to improve the energy efficiency of your garage you’ll need to know how to fix a gap under a garage door. JA Seals manufactures and supply a range of garage door seal products that effectively seal gaps under garage doors.
If the mechanisms of your garage door are working fine and the door can open and close without issue, the garage door gap could be related to your garage door bottom seal. A gap under the garage door is often a sign that your garage door seal is worn and needs to be replaced. If you’ve had your garage door for some time, the rubber seals on the garage door can become brittle and out of shape and are no longer able to form a tight seal between the floor and the bottom of the garage door.
In a few steps, you can fix a gap under your garage door and have peace of mind that your garage threshold is safe from bad weather, insects and vermin. Sealing up garage door gaps can be done with garage bottom door seals, garage threshold seals or a combination of both depending on the size of the gap.
The first thing you need to do is measure the gap under the garage door so you will know the size of the seal you need. The size of the gap will also determine which type of garage door seal will be the most effective. Measure the gap under the garage door in several areas as the seal may have become uneven. Use the measurement of the largest portion of the gap to determine the size of the seal you need. Our garage door bottom seals are available in a variety of sizes. Rubber blade garage door seals will fix gaps that are 20mm, 40mm or 50mm in size and garage door threshold seals are perfect for 15mm, 20mm and 30mm sized garage door gaps.
Simply measure the entire width of your garage door to determine the length of the garage door seal you’ll need. Rubber blade seals from JA Seals have an overall length of 2.44m so bear this in mind when selecting your garage bottom door seal. If you choose a garage door threshold seal or a rubber floor seal, you’ll need to measure the width of the garage door entrance to determine how long your door threshold seal should be. The garage door threshold seals we supply are available in the following lengths:
