⏩ The Issues with Garage Door Weather Strips

We get a lot of calls about deteriorating garage door weather strips. There are a lot of issues that arise with garage door weather strips. The first is that they start to pull from the bottom of the garage. There’s not a lot of framing close to the ground, and there’s not a block of wood or anchor for the weather strip to attach to. It’s normal to see the weather strip become loose.

The best solution for a peeling garage door weather strip is to re-attach it to a block of wood or put an anchor in. If your garage door weather strip is made of wood, it’s always fragile finger jointed wood. It will always peel, no matter how much sanding, primer, or paint we put on it, and is vulnerable to breakage. At this point, it’s more cost effective to replace the weather strip with nice vinyl. This is pretty cheap, and will last a lot longer than a wooden weather strip.

The final step when installing the garage door weather strip is to caulk the weather strip to the stucco. This will prevent any water from penetrating beneath the strip, causing further damage.

If you’re having issues with your garage door weather strip, give us a call. We’ll come out and assess the next best step for you situation and give you an honest quote.

Mr. Cordier did an exceptional job on a house that was in desperate need of a paint job. We hired Pinon to paint the entire exterior of our home and we were so impressed with the time and effort they put into preparing the house prior to painting it. The quality work shows. We are so proud of our beautiful home now. Thank you, Pinon Painting!

Just wanted to put in a good word for the Pinon Painting work force. They provided excellent service in the painting of our home. An outstanding job by a group of men who were efficient, courteous, and accommodating in working around homeowners, our guests, and all of our needs. I recommend them highly for continued service to our community.
