Garage Door Aluminum and Plastic Retainers Repair

For all doors and any door, whether it’s the more common steel door, or wood, aluminum, fibreglass, glass, insulated, and non-insulated doors, proper weatherstripping is a must. A key element of garage door weather stripping is the garage door bottom seal retainer. The high-quality garage door bottom seals provide an excellent barrier against extreme temperature changes and pests.

Having your garage door properly sealed is a great benefit as it will keep leaves, snow, water, insects, rodents, and debris from entering the garage. You will also recognize substantial financial savings if the garage has heating and/or cooling. Prevent your door cables, bottom bracket, door track, and roller from rusting by sealing out moisture from getting under the door, particularly at the corners.

To keep your garage in top condition and prevent rodents, moisture and the elements from negatively affecting it, licensed specialists of FIX Garage Doors CA provide garage door retainer replacement services. A retainer is an imperative tool to maintain your garage. Cost-effective and easy to install, a retainer can save you a lot of money later on.

If you have any questions regarding garage door retainer replacement or installation, the staff at FIX Garage Doors CA has 15 years of experience in this field and can assist you to make the right decision.

You are eligible to choose the nearest in the list of our service areas. You are sure to receive qualified assistance with your garage doors and door retainers, including repair and replacement.

Here we need to take a close look at the existing weather seal in order to determine the correct replacement seal. Most residential garage doors are steel, there are other types of doors but steel doors are by far the most common.

Steel, aluminum, fibreglass and other types of garage doors have a channel on the bottom of the door that the weather seal slides into. This is called the retainer. The retainer is attached to the bottom of the door. Some retainers are actually a part of the door but most are a separate entity from the door itself. Retainers can be made of Steel, Aluminum or PVC.

Let’s explore the two main types of materials used for a garage door bottom seal retainer: aluminum retainers and plastic retainers.

Aluminum Retainer for Garage Door

Made of solid, heavy-duty aluminum, bottom seal retainers provide long-lasting mounts for reliable weather seals. The solid aluminum body firmly mounts to the bottom of commercial and residential garage doors for a guaranteed barrier against the elements when used with a bottom seal.

Make sure your garage door weather seal is secure with a new retainer. The high-quality aluminum bottom seal retainer can easily be screwed onto the bottom of most garage doors. All aluminum retainers for garage doors come in 1 3/8″ W x 1 1/2″ H, 1 3/4″ W x 1 3/4″ H and 2″ W x 2″ H sizes.

Unfortunately, there are no universal garage door weather seals. The seal you need, aluminum or plastic, will be based on what model garage door you have.

Plastic Retainer for Garage Door

Whether for home improvement or to increase workplace energy efficiency, plastic bottom seal retainers are the economical solution for mounting garage door retainer strips. Made from a more lightweight material than aluminum retainers, these can be cut on-site to the exact size of the garage door, which removes the need for precise pre-measuring and makes the job easier for the installer. Along with being lightweight, the PVC plastic construction is resistant to cracking and warping from everyday use and exposure to extreme temperatures.

Plastic bottom seal retainer mounts to a garage door bottom and helps to improve energy efficiency and durability for home improvement. They are available in multiple sizes and styles to fit a wide variety of commercial and residential garage doors. Choose from multiple length options, ranging from eight feet to eighteen feet, to find the best one to fit your garage door or multiple door facility.

Emergency Retainer Repair

All garage doors feature a bottom retainer that acts as the seal at the base of the garage door. This garage door bottom seal retainer is responsible for maintaining your home’s energy efficiency, cooling or extra heating, protecting the base of your garage door and keeping pests and debris from entering your home. 

When it is exposed to harsh exterior elements, over time, the bottom aluminum or plastic retainer for the garage door can become damaged, diminishing the overall effectiveness of the door. The garage door bottom retainer is placed at the bottom of the door and helps keep it secure from the elements.

You may discover that your garage door weather seal 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.
