garage door threshold leveling


I just had a new vinyl overhead door installed. The threshold is level on one side to about the center of the door and then it slopes more than an inch to the other corner. What can I do to level the threshold?

Call the manufacture who made the door and ask if the bottom of the door can be cut to the profile of the floor and then reinstall the weather stripping. This is common practice for wood doors, I don't know about vinyl doors. BOB

I personally wouldn't cut a "new" door, but rather cut a 6" strip out of the concrete, and repour it correctly. A better result is 2 straight surfaces ,not 2 modified or crooked surfaces.

I had this problem, although the maximum gap was 1/2".

I ripped a PT wedge to fill the space and glued it in place with construction adhesive.

A one inch gap may be too much for this solution, as people may be tripping over the wedge!
