A weather seal is a material used to seal any openings such as doors, windows, and trunks from any weather-related elements. Not only can they keep elements from coming inside, but they save energy on heating and air conditioning by keeping any of the interior air in.
American Veteran Garage Doors recommends adding a seal to your garage will help you save on heating and cooling costs, protect you from any outdoor elements, and provide a barrier to prolong the life of your garage and the things inside.
Why should you invest in a weather seal?
Whether you live in a cold climate or extremely warm climate; a weather seal will help keep the garage insulated. During the colder months, the wind chill can creep in to the garage making it harder to control the temperatures on the inside.
The seal will provide a nice cushion of insulation to help monitor the temperature on the inside of the garage. The Department of Energy recommends weather stripping.
Without the weather seal for the garage, the inside can be exposed to a lot of the elements. The water from rain can creep in and leave stains or mold, rocks and dirt can blow through the small cracks, and heavy winds can knock items off of shelves. The seal will create a barrier to prolong the life of your garage and the items inside.
The cushion from the seal will protect the garage door as it opens and closes. The concrete can do a lot of wear and tear on the garage so adding a weather seal will help protect and lengthen the life of the garage door.
There are a few different weather seals you can purchase so find the one that works best with your garage door. This will save you money later on when it comes to garage door repairs.
