1. Snow and Rain
Precipitation hits every part of the garage door. Rain, snow, and sleet can come in from an improperly sealed top, bottom, or side seal. This can create a hazardous condition from frozen water melting and re-freezing.
2. Leaves and Debris
No one likes extra cleaning. Leaves and debris come in under the bottom of a door that is not properly sealed.
3. Rodents and Critters
Squirrels, rats, and mice have collapsible bodies. They can get under a bottom seal and lodge in cars, especially inactive cars.
Flying and crawling insects can get in from all sides and build nests. Obvious hazards arise.
5. Last but not least, cold air
With the winter season coming on, cold winds can surge into the garage from all directions. This leads to a drafty and colder garage that can make adjoining living space harder to heat efficiently.
This may be the best time to inspect your garage door seals!
