Garage Issues


I have a problem with dust, dirt and everything else that can make its way between the outside and my garage door. Its a flimsey door, because when the wind blows aginst the door, I can actually see the sun shining through. is this caused by cheap door, weather stripping? I can clean it today and in 1 week, the dirt and dust is back. Any ideas

Garage Issues


I hope you are talking about the car door, not the house/garage door!

You can buy replacement garage door weatherstripping in assorted lengths and colors for the head and jambs. It comes with nails, cut with a knife. Any box store. You may have wood stop on the exterior now, from an earlier wooden door. They sell bottom rubber draft stop, too. Do NOT unhook the cables when replacing bottom. Be safe, G
