Garage door seal


My garage door evidently has an inferior stop moulding garage door seal (the perimeter seal with the vinyl flap). The vinyl flap on the existing seal is no longer very flexible (after just one year), thus creating an improper seal when the door gap widens slightly with changes in air pressure (wind). Can someone recommend a quality garage seal? There just seems to be so many brands out there (including the stuff that Lowes sells made by Royal Mouldings) and I just don't want the same crap that I have now! Thank you in advance.

Post a picture of how yours was installed.
I've done hundreds of them with that moulding and there all holding up so something may be wrong.

I'll take a picture, but could you tell me what brand you're using / from where? I would greatly appreciate it

Garage door seal


Same brand as you used.
Often times I've seen where people have installed the stips to close to the door so when the door comes down it breaks off the rubber.
Only need the seal to slightly bend enough to make contact with the door.

Well, you are right, the garage door installer installed some of it too close while not close enough on some sections. So, are you saying that the stuff that Lowes sells is what you use (http://www.lowes.com/pd_73717-1487-0...Info=2&state=R)
Thank you again in advance
