Garage door systems are made of many components, which we rarely think about. Springs, door openers, and panels are the most common pieces but there are some which are less visible, and yet so useful, such as garage door seals.
Garage door seals make sure your garage space remains weather-proof and protected from rain, wind, debris, and even rodents.
You will notice if something is wrong with the garage door weather seals if you feel a draft coming from the bottom or the sides of the door. If you see light peeking through your door at night, it means the garage door seal is worn and needs replacement.

Our fully-stocked trucks are equipped with all necessary garage door replacement parts, in order to provide same-day repair and replacement for your garage door seal. We remove the worn seals, take precise measurements, and install new garage door seals. We then check that the garage door opens and closes smoothly and that the seals are performing to the maximum.

Usage and the elements wear out garage door seals. In Florida, your seals may suffer from sun exposure and heat, as well as wind and storms. Sun exposure, wind, debris, and water slowly eat away at the seals, which develop cracks and gaps and do not offer proper insulation anymore. Garage door weatherstripping has a lifespan of two years on average before normal wear and tear make it inefficient.
The best way to check the state of your garage door seals is to observe them.
If you feel a current of air coming from the bottom of your garage door when it is fully closed, it means your weather seal is not performing properly. The purpose of the seals is to weatherproof your garage space. If you feel cool or hot air coming through the closed door, seal replacement is recommended.
The seal’s material might be peeling, flaking, warping, cracking, or sagging due to wear and tear and exposure to the elements. If your seals look tired and past their prime, it’s time to call us for door service. Pro Garage Doors USA has a robust experience in any type of garage door repairs and will typically replace worn seals in a single visit.
Garage door seals are one of those things: you barely notice them when they are doing their job but you become painfully aware of their malfunction very quickly.
Florida’s weather means that we don’t have a problem with cold—but we do have high temperatures and lingering humidity. The garage door seals keep your garage area insulated. If you are using your garage area not only to park your cars but also to work out, enjoy crafts, or perform any other activity, proper seals offer insulation that allows for a pleasant temperature while using your garage area.
A well-insulated garage space makes your home more energy efficient. In Florida, proper garage insulation means that your home is not so exposed to the outside heat or cold. You need less electricity to cool or heat your garage space, which saves you money to spend elsewhere.
Miami, Palm Beach, and Broward, FL are truly beautiful places to live and work, but are prone to storms. A door weather seal protects your garage space from rain entering and from debris and dust settling it. Even the tiniest gap can let water get in and damage your property and belongings. Water can also damage the garage door itself.
You certainly don’t want vermin running around your door, particularly if you use your garage space for other purposes such as a pantry or office. Rodents are smart and curious and can wiggle their body through the tiniest crack. A well-performing seal will keep pests and insects at bay.
Bottom seals dampen the movement of the door when it reaches the floor. They are a great way to protect it and minimize the friction between these two hard surfaces when they brush against each other.
Bottom seals also reduce noise when garage doors open and close. If you have a bedroom adjacent to the home garage space, door bottom seals can make a big difference regarding noise cancellation.
Garage door seals come in different shapes, textures, and materials. Depending on the garage door material and aesthetic, Pro Garage Doors USA technicians will suggest the right seals for your home or business and provide installation, repair, or replacement service.
Regarding garage door bottom seals, you can choose between a bulb, beaded, J-type, and T-type. Vinyl seals are used for the sides of the garage door, threshold seals are mounted on the floor for maximum insulation, and brush seals installation on the garage door sides is also recommended.
Each type of seal has its own benefits. Depending on the garage door type and usage we will install the best combination of seals for absolute security and weather protection.
Seals are installed at the bottom, top, and sides of the door. Pro Garage Doors USA can also install seals between the panels for maximum insulation and noise reduction. Give us a call today and learn how you can seal and insulate your garage door effectively.

Are garage door seals necessary?
You might think that garage door seals are frivolous and unnecessary, but they keep your garage space protected from rain and wind. They also keep rodents away and act as an insulator. Bottom seals dampen noise and protect the garage door from brushing against the floor with every closing.

My garage door opens up crooked. What’s the problem?
If your garage door opens up but is unbalanced and looks crooked, you could have problems with the cables, springs, or rollers. In some cases, the tracks are bent or obstacles such as debris are blocking the door from properly opening and closing.
For safety reasons, do not try to fix a crooked door on your own, and do not attempt to operate it. If the springs or cables are damaged they could give in at any moment, injuring you and your family or falling on your car. A crooked door also gives easy access to intruders. Contact us and we will schedule a same day service call for immediate garage door repair.
My garage door makes strange noises when it opens and closes. What is the problem with it?
A garage door should never make strange noises while it opens or closes. If you notice that your garage door makes creaky noises, it could be because of your garage door opener. Old garage door openers may be overheating or drive trains and belts are aging and cannot perform as they should. Vibrating noises indicate that your door opener is not secured tightly to the wall. Schedule a service call with us to learn if you need garage door opener repair or replacement.

Highly recommend. Needed new garage door opener machine. Called 5 other companies who all claimed I had an 8 ft door when Ben the owner said it was 7. His warranty + prices beat everyone. He gives a company 2 year service vs 1. I also bought a model that included 2 remotes + a keypad with a lifetime motor warranty vs 5 yrs from everyone else and I still saved $90 from the lowest other company. !!! He's insured + licensed. Ben is great on customer service, on time + efficient. Easy to deal with.
This is exactly the kind of service you expect to get with every vendor you hire! Perfect from beginning to end. Came on time, sent proposal timely and it was clear the times of installation and exactly what to expect and when. Thank you Ben for addressing all our concerns. Great working with you guys! 5 ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️
