How to Protect Your Garage from Extreme Weather

Weather-Seal Your Garage Door

When you want to keep dirt and water out of your garage, start with a quality bottom seal. Over time, these seals break down, creating space for water and dirt to creep in. Replace your old seal with a new one made of rubber or vinyl. If you can see light coming from under your garage door, it's a good sign to replace the seal.

To prevent water from getting in during particularly stormy days, install weatherstripping around the sides and top of your garage door.

Add Insulation

To keep your garage warm during colder months, you can add insulation. If you plan to spend a lot of time in your garage, insulation is a relatively low-cost way to warm up your garage. There are two ways to insulate your garage door: adding insulation to your current door or upgrading to a new, insulated door.

Repair Cracks

It's normal for hairline cracks to appear in the concrete of your garage. But you will need to repair them to keep water from seeping into your garage. For cracks that are smaller than ¼ inch, you can fix them yourself by using vinyl concrete patches that are available at most hardware stores. Anything larger will probably need professional repair.
