We know that garage doors are not all the same thickness. In an effort to help you order the best kit for your application we have designed our kits to be used on doors of various thicknesses and widths. We offer 3 different thickness of retainers 1-3/8", 1-3/4", and 2". Then we break it down even further by offering single door kits which consist of enough retainer and seal to do a door up to 9' in width or a double door kit that will cover a door up to 18' in width. If your door is not exactly the size of our kits they can easily be cut down to the size you need. The retainer can be cut with a handsaw and the seal portion can be cut with house hold scissors if needed.
Our kits come with the retainer and seal shown below:
Garage Door Bottom Replacement Kit Installation Guide:
Disconnect your garage door opener trolley by using the pull handle. Open the door ¾ of the way and lock it in place by using the vice grips on the garage door rails. Remove old weather seal and track if applicable (Do not remove your bottom brackets with the cable attached!!!!!)
Pre-Drill holes every 18 inches on the bottom of the Retainers. Next mount the bottom retainers. If you purchased and “L” Shaped retainer; the vertical portion is designed to be mounted on the inside of the garage and you can put a couple screws in that portion if you so desire. Make sure that each section of retainer is tightly fitted together and flush. This will allow the seal to slide in without getting snagged.
Slide the rubber seal in from the end of the track. You may need to feed it through the rails of the garage door to do this. As you slide the seal in, be sure that the seal is staying in the track. Trim the ends as needed after the seal retracts (it stretches slightly during installation)

ANSWER: For your driveway is higher than your garage floor, you need a trench drain along the front of your garage. If it's just a little water than the bottom door seal is good as long as you also put a weather strip/lip along the floor that meets it when the door closes by Karl B a
