Q. Bill asks: What is the best way to seal the garage door?
A. We assume you are referring to a sectional garage door rather than the tilt-type. A simple fix would be to apply a 1-inch-wide strip of rubber to the inside surface of the door at each horizontal section joint -- all the way from one side of the door to the other. Apply the strip to the upper section centered between it and the section below. A special rubber bottom can be purchased to fit the base of just about any garage door.
For the sides of the opening -- on the outside trim -- attach old-fashioned weather-stripping for a conventional door. It's the type with the round vinyl bead attached to a flat metal strip.
If the door is wood, use staples or nails to attach your windproofing. If the door is a metal one, use half-inch, self-tapping screws.
