When it comes to protecting your home from the elements, weatherstripping can be the perfect tool. Whether you are weatherproofing your garage door or adding weatherstripping to your door, the benefits are undeniable. We talk you through what exactly weatherstripping is and why it could be the perfect tool for weatherproofing your home and saving on heating costs this winter.
Weatherstripping is available in a string and is used to seal edges of windows and doors against weather and other outdoor elements. Weatherstripping is a great tool to protect your home from wet weather as well as draughts and other outside elements from entering your home. Using tools such as weather stripping helps to insulate your home by avoiding heat loss through gaps in your door meaning it could help to bring your energy prices down.
There are several ways to see if your door or garage door is in need of weather stripping. If you can feel draughts coming through your door, it’s safe to say that you will need to install some weather stripping. However, there are some more obvious ways to test your door. One way is to insert a piece of paper into the edges of your door, if the paper fits through and can move around with ease, it is a good idea to install some weatherstripping or a garage door seal on your door. Another way is to use a hairdryer on one side of the door and get someone to hold their hand to the other side of the door as you make your way around the door. If they can feel the air on their hand, there is a gap.
Fitting weather stripping to your home is simple. Whether it is garage door weather stripping or window weather stripping, we have the weather stripping to fit. Garage door weather stripping comes in a wide range of lengths and heights so you will be able to choose the best fit for your door.
To fit your weather strips, make sure you have first cleaned the surface area you will be applying. If the type of weather strips you are applying have adhesive strips on, remove these from the back of the weatherstrip and press the weatherstrip to the edge of your door where you would like to apply the seal. If you have old weatherstripping still on your door, ensure this is removed and the area thoroughly cleaned before applying the new weather stripping.
