Garage door leaking...


Guys,

Every time there is a driving rain the water seeps under my garage door and a fair way into the garage, ruining my stuff... Is there anything I can do? Ive tightened the closing setting to the max. What about the tsunami threshold? Anyone heard of it? Let me know. Maybe just need to replace the rubber seal on the bottom of the door.

Sounds like a Channel Drain might be your solution depending on how the water is flowing toward the garage door. Search on YouTube for some videos.

Does the driveway slope into the garage?
We had 5+ inches yesterday and both the garages are dry.
