Garage door seals, also known as garage door weatherstripping or garage door gaskets, are specialized sealing components designed to provide a barrier against weather elements and other environmental factors for garage doors. These seals help in maintaining the temperature inside the garage, preventing the entry of dust, insects, and pests, and reducing energy loss. There are several types of garage door seals, each serving a specific purpose:
- Bottom Seal (Threshold Seal):
- Location: Installed at the bottom of the garage door.
- Purpose: Seals the gap between the garage floor and the door, preventing water, leaves, and pests from entering the garage.
- Top Seal (Header Seal):
- Location: Installed at the top of the garage door opening.
- Purpose: Seals the top of the door, preventing drafts and rain from entering the garage.
- Side Seals (Jamb Seals):
- Location: Installed along the sides of the garage door frame (jambs).
- Purpose: Seals the gaps between the door and the door frame, preventing drafts, insects, and moisture from entering the garage.
- Brush Seal or Bristle Seal:

Garage door seals come in various sizes, shapes, and materials to suit different types of garage doors and environmental conditions. Properly installed and well-maintained seals not only enhance the comfort and energy efficiency of your garage but also extend the lifespan of the garage door itself by protecting it from moisture and corrosion. Regular inspection and replacement of damaged or worn-out seals are essential to ensure their effectiveness.
