In reply to Making garage door more weather blocking by Anne on January 8th, 2003 07:36 PM [Go to top of thread]

garage door? you will never get it totally weather tight but you can improve the sealing of it. by doing some of the things you mentioned like replacing weatherstripping. and adding the extra insulation paneling will help some too. do you plan to use some heating in the garage/shop? would hope so...because most likely the walls are not insulated cold will get thru the walls too. sounds like you do not plan to open the garage door except in the summer/spring months, correct.??? the new door is a little pricey and you still may end up wiht the weather leaks around the top, sides and bottom. You probably are doing all you can to better insulate that door....only potential added thing I can think of doing is stretching perhaps a sheet of plastic across the whole door/opening and stapling it on the 3 sides if are still geting cold air filtering in thru the sealed areas or other places. good luck LJ
