how to reseal a garage door

If you have a garage, then you know that the door can start to look a little worn down over time. One way to fix this is by resealing it! In this blog post, we will walk you through the 9 easy steps that you need to follow in order to reseal your garage door. Keep reading for more information!

The first step is to clean off the door. You can do this with a hose or a pressure washer. If you have a lot of dirt and grime built up, then you might want to use a degreaser as well. Once you have cleaned off the door, let it dry completely before moving on to the next step.

The next step is to remove any old sealant that might be on the door. You can do this with a putty knife or a scraper. If the sealant is particularly stubborn, you might need to use a heat gun to soften it up first. Once you have removed all of the old sealants, you should wipe down the door with a clean cloth to remove any residue.

Now it’s time to apply the new sealant! You will want to start by applying a bead of sealant around the perimeter of the door. Once you have done that, use a brush or a roller to spread it out evenly. Make sure that you are working quickly so that the sealant does not have a chance to dry before you are finished.

Once you have applied the new sealant, you should allow it to dry for 24 hours before using the door. After that, your garage door will be looking good as new! Thanks for following along. We hope that this blog post was helpful. If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment below.
