The weatherstrip is a critical but often overlooked component of an overhead door.

If you see any of the following issues, feel free to call GVA Garage Doors. Our dedicated technicians can replace your weatherstrip with same day service.
Worn or damaged weatherstrip:
It is an excellent idea to inspect your weatherstrip thoroughly. If you find broken parts or rubber that’s worn down, it might be the time to thinking about a replacement. Regularly replacing your weatherstrip will help you to prevent the other problems on this list.
You are finding leaves, water, or outdoor garbage in your garage:
If you wake up in the morning to see that leaves, water and outdoor garbage materials have made their way into your garage, your weatherstrip is probably the culprit. Broken weatherstrip helps wind to easily blow debris into your garage.
Your garage is becoming a habitat for rats and mice:
Water and leaves are not the only things that get into your garage through a damaged weatherstrip. Small animals such as rats and mice can squeeze through broken weatherstrips and make your garage their permanent home. Replacing the weatherstrip promptly will definitely secure your space.
Your garage is draftier than normal:
Garages are not insulated in the same manner the rest of our house is, so a draft in your garage is generally normal. However, if you find this draft has changed, it might be an indication that your weatherstrip is wearing down & lowering the temperature of your garage.
