Garage Door Bottom Rubber Retainer
All garage doors feature a bottom retainer that acts as the seal at the base of the garage door. This garage door bottom seal is responsible for maintaining your home’s energy efficiency, protecting the base of your garage door and keeping pests and debris from entering your home. When it’s exposed to harsh exterior elements, over time, the bottom rubber retainer can become damaged, diminishing the overall effectiveness of the garage door. The garage door bottom retainer is placed at the bottom of your garage door and helps keep the door secure from the elements.
You may discover that your garage door’s bottom rubber retainer needs replacement — check for signs of damage like gaps beneath the door, rusting and cold or heat getting in. When installing a new bottom seal, also consider replacing your door’s weather stripping to improve the performance of your garage door.
