How to replace the rubber seal on the bottom of the garage door

We do not recommend doing the replacement yourself since it is easy to get some of these jobs wrong. However, if you have the experience and tools to do it, replacing your garage door bottom retainer becomes easier.

Here’s how you replace a rubber seal on the bottom of your garage door:

     1. Take measurements of the door

Begin by measuring the garage door’s height, width, and thickness. These measurements will be required when purchasing a garage door stop with a built-in sealing lip and a replacement garage door bottom seal. Add V-strip weather stripping, a tube of outside caulk, and a small container of wood sealant (for wooden doors) to your list. Purchase a rubber threshold to adequately seal it.

Many garage doors include a metal track with a removable rubber seal. The seal compresses and breaks with time. Substitute it with a “cold weather” silicone-type sealant, which retains flexibility in cold temperatures and lasts longer.

     2. Remove the old garage door bottom seal retainer and install the new one

If it has been crimped, you can slide out the old rubber or pry it off using a flat screwdriver. You can cut it off if necessary. Clean the bottom and cut new rubber sealant with a razor knife to fit the door. It takes some time to slide it on.

Wooden garage doors have rubber seals nailed to them and sealed with the wood sealer, necessitating some more work. Prepare the areas before you start the installation.

     3. Install your threshold and a stop

Start by cleaning the concrete and letting it dry. Then, install the threshold after measuring and marking where the garage door sits when it is down. Remove your old stop and install a new one if necessary.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What do you call the rubber on the bottom of a garage door?

    The rubber is known as the garage door seal retainer. Bottom retainers come in various forms and sizes, like side and top retainers. Inserts made of rubber or vinyl with Bead-Shaped and T-Shaped ends can be fitted onto the bottom retainers based on the shape of the slots.

    What is the best way to seal the bottom of my garage door?

    Thresholds can be employed in place of or in addition to a door seal. When a driveway dips into a garage, thresholds are frequently used to keep groundwater out. They can also be used to fill a huge gap beneath a door. A high-quality vinyl threshold barrier can outlast a door seal.

    Is the size of all garage door weather seals the same?

    The most popular garage door bottom seal type is the U-shaped variant with T ends that fit into the retainer. The width of the T is not uniform; a quarter inch is by far the most frequent, but 5/16" is also utilized by some garage door manufacturers. We have a large range of seals to ensure that your door size can be accommodated.
