Bottom Weather Seal For Sectional Garage Door
I charge $150 to install bottom weather weal on a 2 car garage.
However if you help pull the weather stripping as I insert it, requiring practically no strength, then I charge $125.
This is for a normal sectional garage door.
(Not a California one-piece flipper door.)
It also assumes normal standard weather stripping is used.
If the bottom weather stripping is proprietary then an aluminum "extrusion" for $40 must be first mounted to the bottom of the door.
Then the weather seal is slid into it.
Pricing on a second door, an 8' on a three car garage, goes for $75.
$50 if there is somebody there to pull the end of the stripping as it is inserted.
Keep in mind the bottom weather stripping will not keep mice or rain out of your garage.
At best it keeps the light and dust out.
The mice will wait until the door is opened and skip on in so fast you think it is a shadow flicker.
Rain gets through on the edges.
The wind pushes the rain up against the door and the water finds a way in, usually on the sides, and floods the garage.
The only exception to this is when the garage cement has been poured so it is on a plateau above where the door rests.
Furthermore in a years time it the bottom weather seal will look old and worn.
Trying to keep it looking new is like trying to keep the water out of the garage.
The only positive is that the new weather stripping will be installed in a way where it won't shrink.
Many installations I see incorrectly installed weather seal that has shrunk by a few inches on one side or the other.
