How to Adjust the Gap at the Bottom of Garage Door

A gap at the bottom of your garage door is one of the common garage door problems that should be addressed as soon as possible. A garage door should close all the way to the floor to keep out critters and unwanted elements. However, there are many things that can lead to garage door gaps.

In this article, we will look at the causes of the gap at the bottom of a garage door and how to fix this problem.

What Causes a Gap at The Bottom of Garage Door?

  • Poor Installation- A bad installation job done by someone who’s not experienced can cause a gap between the floor and the garage door.
  • Unequal Spring Tension- This can result in an unbalanced garage door with gaps at the bottom.
  • Normal Wear and Tear- Your garage door can become crooked due to prolonged use. Everything from worn-out horizontal tracks to a damaged threshold seal and dilapidated weatherstripping can result in a gap at the bottom of your garage door.

Ways to Fix the Gap at The Bottom of Garage Door

  • Replace Your Garage Door Weatherstripping Seal

Your garage door weatherstripping seal may shrink and lose its shape over time leading to gaps at the bottom of the door. If the gap is caused by worn-out weatherstripping, call garage door contractors to replace it.

  • Repair The Floor Surface

If the gap is caused by an uneven floor surface or foundation shifting, call a concrete contractor to level the floor surface and get rid of the problem. This process requires a lot of precision because a slight mistake can worsen the problem.

  • Repair Your Garage Door

Perhaps the garage door gap is caused by a misaligned door, unbalanced spring tension, or a worn-out garage door. Garage door problems that cause gaps should be addressed by an experienced garage door contractor. Furthermore, it’s important to have an experienced garage door contractor install your garage door to avoid problems that come with a bad installation job. You should never attempt to repair or install a garage door if you’re not an experienced garage door contractor.

  • Add A Threshold Seal

Threshold seals are installed on the edge of the garage floor to provide a barrier that helps to keep out pests, debris, and rainwater. A threshold seal is especially helpful for uneven garage floors. 

When you notice a gap at the bottom of your garage door, ensure you call garage door contractors to inspect the door and restore it to its good working order. Ignoring the problem can lead to problems such as cold air, rain, and pests entering your garage. Besides, it will affect your garage's curb appeal, which can make your home unattractive to potential homebuyers.
