Garage Door Bottom Rubber Retainer
Every garage door has a bottom rubber retainer at the base of the door and weather stripping along the top and sides. The garage door bottom seal is responsible for protecting your home and the contents of your garage against unpleasant drafts, extreme weather and moisture intrusion, debris buildup and critter infestations. Garage door bottom rubber retainers also help to keep the weather stripping securely in place.
When constantly exposed to harsh weather events and debris, it’s common for the garage door bottom rubber retainer to become worn or damaged. Homeowners can usually identify damaged bottom retainers by looking for:
- Gaping beneath the bottom of the door
- Rust and corrosion buildup on the surface of the retainer
- Drafts of warm or cool air flowing through the bottom of the garage door
When you notice these signs of damaged or defective garage door bottom retainers, it’s possible to replace the retainer and seal for improved garage door energy efficiency, protection and performance.
Types of Garage Door Bottom Rubber Retainers
To easily accommodate various types of garage doors and efficiency expectations, several different types of garage door bottom rubber retainers are available in various shapes and sizes. The most popular is U-shaped.
- U-Shaped Bottom Rubber Retainer: As the most common residential garage door bottom retainer, U-shaped options have square-cut ends that come together for a cleaner and more professional appearance. U-Shaped rubber retainers are versatile and suitable for garage doors for which it is difficult to find an optimal seal.
