Garage Door Difficulties

3 Replies

Good evening BP users!

Recently purchased a property in SC and unfortunately we’ve been getting hit with a lot of rain lately. Our tenants were set to move in last Friday and noted water coming into the garage. Thankfully they noted the issue and let us know prior to any damage. The driveway slopes down and we should be able to divert the drains from the garage however to anyone’s knowledge is there any solution other than replacing the entire door due to the open crack near the bottom? Thanks in advance for everyone’s help and advice!

Get yourself a bit of self leveling compound. Work the floor with the slightest grade down towards the door way.

That should prevent the water from "pooling" on the inside. Check the bottom of the door. There should be some weather stripping that goes along the bottom. If it's absent or damaged replace the strip.
