How Can I Prevent A Flood In My Garage?

Heavy rains can lead to flooding in low lying areas. It’s important to protect your garage from flooding as best as you can. There are things you can do to keep water from piling up near your home. The team here at Neighborhood Garage Door Repair suggests that you try these things to keep your garage from flooding.

1. Change Your Weatherstripping

Start by inspecting the weatherstripping on your door. If it is old, then it needs to be replaced in order to create a good seal between the door and the concrete. You can install this yourself or have one of our technicians come out and manage it for you.

2. Fix Drainage Problems

Sometimes a house can settle and cause water to pile up around the house. This can present a problem for the foundation as well as for your garage. It’s important to fix any drainage problems you may have.

One way that you can fix this type of problem is to dig a drainage ditch around your house and add a half pipe to send it towards the road. You may need to create a trench in the concrete in front of your door as well.

3. Adjust The Garage Door

When your door closes, it should create a tight seal with the ground. After you change the weatherstripping, you may still notice a gap. If that’s the case, then your garage door opener needs to be adjusted.

The adjustment for an opener is on the sides. There are usually two knobs or dials that you will turn to make the adjustment. When you are making the adjustments, turn the knobs a little at a time and check the door in between every time.

4. Create a Barrier in Emergencies

If you are in a hurricane or tsunami conditions, you should consider creating a barrier in front of your door. This will keep rising waters from penetrating the door. Fill bags with sand or buy sandbags to put down. You will want to make sure the entire width of the door is lined.

Stack several bags on top of each other, especially around the edges. You can put bags on both sides of the door for protection. If you don’t have enough bags, you can lay down sheets and towels on the inside or your garage to soak up any water that may seep through.

Call us Today For Garage Door Adjustments

If you need to get your door adjusted, call the team at Neighborhood Garage Door Repair. We’ll send one of our qualified technicians out to your home to make the adjustment. They will determine if your door is creating a good seal. In fact, they can also add new weatherstripping if you need them to.

Get in touch with us today so that we can help you. We look forward to hearing from you!

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
