Garage DOOR WAY OFF DUE TO uneven slope!


Good catch Gary, I guess I should start reading the entire post.............


I guess this would have been one of the few cases were a wood garage door was the most functional approach.

Maybe yes, maybe no, either way itís still a mistake.

Garage DOOR WAY OFF DUE TO uneven slope!


Thanks for all the great ideas. I am going to try the wedge and wrap it in the white alumin. I just learned you cant use treated lumber and wrap it in alumin b/c it eats it away. My garage is bulit on my driveway. I didnt even think of the problems i would have but it has turned out really nice. Got my power and insulated it. Just waiting on it to warm up to lay brick. I will post a pic when i get it done.

Thanks to all!!!

Mikel

We put a door seal that attaches by screws to the inside of the garage door to fix a gap on one side of the shed's roll up door. The seal is called a snirtstopper. Worked for us, might be worth it to check it out. They have a website that you can order from. I attached a pic from their website that got me to buy one. Hope this helps!

I have this same problem with the garage door and floor not matching up. Im researching a fix for this and saw a picture of what you did. What type of wedge/aluminum piece did you attach to your garage door. I cant tell from the picture what was done exactly.

Thanks

The snirtstopper garage door seal is the only thing added to the door. The picture is from their website: http://www.snirtstopper.com
We put one on a roll-up door on the shed at my Father-In-Laws because the door wouldn't go all the way down to the cement in some spots, he's happy that he didn't have to waste money putting in a new cement slab.
