Garage door threshold - rubber or aluminum?

mrpandyDecember 10, 2009

I want to add a threshold to my garage doors since the slab slopes a little in front toward the doors and I'm getting water inside when it rains. I can find glue-down rubber thresholds like Storm Shield, but I like the idea of something a little more durable and permanent like aluminum. Besides price and ease of installation, is there a good reason to use rubber thresholds instead of aluminum?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

One problem with using aluminum is that it will flatten as you drive over it.
In the past, I have added an extra piece of wood filler between the door bottom and the rubber seal. This worked fine to seal out the elements.
