Winter-Ready: Complete Guide to Sealing the Top and Sides of your Garage Door

As winter descends upon the UK, the battle against the cold becomes paramount. Often overlooked, the state of your garage door plays a crucial role in keeping your home warm and energy-efficient. In this detailed guide, we'll explore the benefits of GaraDry® Top & Side Seals, specially designed to seal garage door sides and tops, providing an effective solution to combat the chill and keep your home snug during the colder months.

Why Seal Your Garage Door During UK Winters?

Draught Prevention for Cosy Living: With temperatures dropping, unsealed gaps around your garage door become conduits for cold air, resulting in discomfort and higher energy bills. GaraDry® seals act as reliable barriers against draughts, ensuring a cosy living space.

Enhanced Heat Conservation: Properly sealing the sides and top of your garage door with GaraDry® prevents valuable heat from escaping. This not only keeps your garage warmer but also contributes to overall energy efficiency in your home.
Winter Debris Protection: UK winters often bring rain, wind, and leaves.

GaraDry® seals act as protective barriers, preventing windblown rainwater, debris, and leaves from entering your garage and potentially causing damage.
