Re: Garage Door Weatherstripping

I have 2 doors with that threshold type seal and they work really well at keeping things out. But they also work very well on keeping things in. If you often use a garden hose to wash off your floor, that threshold seal is not a good idea. (The glue seems to be ok so far, about 5 or 6 years and it hasn't come loose)
 

Window Weatherstrip and Gasket Compression

Close the door and measure the top of the frame from side to side. Mark the length on the short section of your purchased weatherstripping with a clear, sharp line.

Cut one end of each side weatherstripping to fit the profile of the top piece. Mark the profile using a scrap for a guide, cut the foam with a scissors and cut the profile with a coping saw.
