    isnt mastic great ? we used to bodge council houses roof repairs ( cuz of
    council demands budgets ) by fixing broken cement or clay roof tiles with
    guttering mastic ,and let me tell u ,2 years visiting the same houses ,them
    glued tiles are still affixed ! so any mastic to a concrete floor to a
    rubber strip will hold EASILY for many years?

    That looks simple enough. Thanks so much for posting this. I am trying to
    help upgrade my parents’ house and this is exactly what I need to do. Right
    now they have an older manual garage door so I am assuming that I will have
    to wait until the new door is installed before doing this. Also, thanks for
    the heads up about insulating the garage door. The cold that comes in
    through the garage right now is appalling. I’ll definitely be doing that
    too. :)?

    Thanks for the great video. I’ve been going to do this for ages, but wasn’t
    sure how. No excuse now for not doing it. Thanks again!?

    Nice, clear demonstration. Many thanks. What is that lining on the inside
    of the door for, by the way ??

    No, it is designed for this purpose! These seals have been driven over with
    a 14 tonne steam roller and have not been damaged ;-)

    I think mine was a similar price. Now I just need to install some frost
    heaters in there ;-)

    What’s the height on that seal, the gap on my door is pretty large in
    places. To be fair though it’s pretty large all the way around, if i had my
    way it would be bricked up with a window and UPVC door ;)

    Can you still get garage door mounting kits? Bloody things snapped and I
    don’t want to buy another door as well.

    Can this work if you cut the strip into smaller sectors so it’s easier to
    glue it down perfectly

    Nice job. Might as well paint the floor now!

    I have been planning to, but might be screeding it first. Not a five minute
    job so it might have to wait till next year ;-) Thanks for the comment

    You can get most spares for garage doors from ebay etc.

    I would not cut it as you run the chance or water getting through it. It’s
    not difficult to install (honestly)
