If one of our garage door bottom seal kits is not going to suit your particular job site conditions, we sell many different garage door retainers and also a wide variety of weather seal that works with our retainers. Retainers and weather seal can be purchased separately to provide you with the perfect combination for your garage door.
Easy to install.
Installing the Overhead Door Bottom Seal Kit can be done by one person but it helps to have two people especially to slide the weather seal into the new bottom retainer.
In some cases you will able to install the retainer over the existing retainer, in most cases it is preferable to remove the existing retainer, this typically gives you a better mounting surface for the new retainer.
Hold the first length of retainer up and onto the bottom section with the end of the retainer even with the end of the garage door, mark the retainer if any trimming or notching is needed. Using a hack saw, trim the retainer as needed. Now install the retainer using the provided screws. Continue this process with the remaining lengths of retainer trimming and/or notching the final length of retainer at the other end of the garage door.
Once the new retainer is installed securely to the bottom of the garage door insert the T portion of the weather seal into the slot on the bottom of the retainer. Here is where it is best to have two people involved, one to guide the weather seal into the retainer and the other to pull the weather seal along the length of the garage door. We use WD40 applied into the channel of the retainer to help the weather seal slide. When you have pulled the weather seal the lenght of the garage door, make sure that the weather seal is not stretched or stressed. You do not want the weather stretched. Once the weather seal is installed, trim off any excess weather seal with a sharp utility knife leaving approximately 1/2″ of weather seal beyond the edge of the garage door. You can run a screw into the retainer channel to hold the weather seal in place.
