Universal Garage Door Bottom Seals
Frequently Asked Questions
What are universal garage door seals?
Universal garage door seals from North Shore Commercial Door are designed and manufactured to fit the bottom of any standard garage door. These include garage doors ranging in width from 9 ft to 18 ft across the bottom of the door.
Since garage doors (including standard size) can differ in thickness, we offer retainers that are 1 3/8 inches thick, 1 3/4 inches thick and 2 inches thick. Not every standard door will match such specifications, but NorthShore makes it easy to cut your part to size! Use an ordinary handsaw to trim the retainer, and use household scissors to trim the garage door weather seal until it matches your door. Our universal garage door bottom weather stripping kits include the garage door bottom weather seal and replacement garage door retainer.
What are the different types of garage door bottom seals?
At North Shore Commercial Door, you can find P-bulb and T-style rubber bulb garage door bottom seals, which are especially popular among homeowners with uneven garage door floors. We also sell brush seals, bead end weather seals for garage door bottoms, triangle-end bottom seals and threshold seals. In addition, we also carry rodentBLOCK with Xcluder bottom weather seals designed to keep rats, bugs and other pests out of your garage without having to resort to poisonous chemicals or dangerous traps. Our Storm Shield peal-and-stick garage door bottom threshold seals are another great weather seal that is affixed to the garage floor directly beneath your garage door.

When should I replace weather stripping?
Weather stripping wears out over time, which becomes evident from a cracked, broken, brittle or otherwise marred weather seal. Examine your weather stripping and see if you can spot light coming through any cracks or feel air coming through hairline cracks or breaks. If so, it's time to replace your weather stripping. If your weather stripping is brittle or flaking, we recommend replacing it early. Neglecting to replace a bad seal means you'll lose the money-saving benefits of keeping out cold and hot drafts. You'll also lose protection of the contents of your garage against the elements, pests, water and other contaminants.
