Question DetailsAsked on 6/25/2012

I am looking for the rubber bottom for my garage door. Single garage, bottom only 1 inch wide. Unable to locate less than 2 1/2" width.

The old garage door bottom cracked and came off. Water coming into garage. Garage door is lower than drive way.

Ann, I believe I saw these at Home Depot.
They also have a rubber threshold kit to seal the door. Check this page

Someone sure screwed up there - there is no feasible way to seal a garage door against surface water coming in and still have it operable to drive in and out.


Seals - HD and Lowes have lots of products from M-D and FrosstKing - you should be able to find one there, even if you need to leave a bit sticking out inside. Not outside, at least not much, as most doors have close clearance with beams or posts when they open. For your purpose, the double-bulb types are commonly the best sealing, but will still leak a lot of water at the ends.


Proper solution to your problem is (maybe when repaving) putting in either a drive-on slotted drain or a swale along the front of the garage to divert the water away from the garage (and house). Sometimes, if you have a distinct low spot, a single drive-on grating cover over a buried drain pipe will handle it, though if the actual drain is commonly driven on will commonly become a depressed broken-up area around the drain cover unless done with great care.
