Check Out Costly Gaps In Your New Garage Door

The garage is, in many ways, the gateway to your home.

If you have a new, or relatively new, overhead garage door you may feel confident it is keeping out air filtration, rain, snow, dirt and critters.

But a close examination often shows that is not the case. It is not unusual for even new doors to have gaps of half an inch or more at the bottom and the sides. Those gaps can lead to an uncomfortable, unhealthy and costly garage area.

Most new doors only seal to the edge of the door, not to the side rails – it is there that gaps of at least half an inch often can be seen. Similar gaps occur at the bottom where uneven floors create problems (and infiltration) due to poorly designed sealing systems.

In essence you are allowing “Snirt” to create problems in your garage, and potentially into your home. It’s time to Stop the Snirt.

Okay, first of all, what is snirt? Traditionally, it is the unsightly and messy combination of snow and dirt that can blow underneath or through the sides of your poorly sealed overhead door. In a broader sense, snirt also can be water/rain, leaves, bugs, mice, snow, grime and even snakes moving under your door or through the sides. Heat loss is also a major concern.

Check out the gap on your current overhead door to get an idea of the problem you are dealing with. Did you know that drafts can bring dirt, snow, ice, mud, plus heat and cooling loss through a space of 1/32nd of an inch? Bugs and spiders can creep through a space of only 1/16th of an inch. Mice can enter your garage area through a space the size of a pencil. It’s time to put a stop to all that infiltration.

With our revolutionary SnirtStopper you can indeed Stop the Snirt! The SnirtStopper system features two revolutionary products — the BottomSealer and SideSealer — to allow you to create a cleaner and safer indoor area. It also helps you reduce energy bills and provide a more comfortable space by keeping out the cold in winter and the heat in summer.

The BottomSealer, along with the SideSealer (and TopSealer), will close up your overhead and other outside doors just like you seal up the front door of your home.

Now is the time to move past that old overhead door stripping that doesn’t work. The BottomSealer is self-adjusting and eliminates gaps of up to two inches – and you don’t have to replace your current seal. The Kevlar-reinforced material will not wear out and mice, along with other critters, will not chew through it! The system is easy to install and all needed hardware is included.

These products will pay for themselves with the amount of energy you will save. It will prevent heat loss in the winter and keep your area cooler in the summer. In many cases, the energy savings can be up to 40 percent.

To show our faith in the SnirtStopper system, it comes with a 25-year guarantee!

And now for some additional great news – you can choose from among several colors to match your door color or trim.
