– to keep rain from running under my garage door into the garage.
Moved into late-70’s ‘kit-built’ (I believe, looking at some of its curious construction detailing) house about two years back. Looks like fill under garage slab wasn’t compacted much (if at all!) so slab has cracked & settled some with one section sloping towards house to the south. Add to that the fact that the slab extends about 5 or 6″ in front of the garage door, when it rains & wind blows from the east (like right now) I get water under door & pooling in garage. Nuisance mostly.
I added wood shim (cedar, ripped to taper) to door edge soon after moving in then installed hardware store door seal for better air sealing but water’s the recurring issue.
Anybody ever seen a wide enough metal or plastic ‘drip edge’ kinda z-shaped product or fabrication installed in a situation like this? My thinking is if I can find or make something properly shaped to secure to outside bottom edge of door, that extends out over edge of slab an inch or so, rain wouldn’t tend to run in nearly as bad.
If I can improves things 75% or more I’ll be happy.
