Rubber seals are widely used in the home to help prevent drafts and keep us warm. They’re also found in our cars where they create an airtight seal that stops leaks and ensures our doors close snugly.
Over time, rubber seals can become degraded. They harden or become porous, crack or rip, and that means they don’t work as effectively as once they did. When this happens, it’s critical to replace the seals and prevent any potential damage that can be caused.
Rubber Seals for Car and Van Doors
One sign that your car or van door needs a new seal is when it will begin to leak during wet weather. You may also notice that the car is noisier than it used to be and you might even feel air movement.
It’s important to check your van or door seals every so often to make sure they are working properly. If the seal has become hardened or appears brittle, you might want to consider replacing it. If a seal breaks, it can cause leaking which can get into the metalwork causing rust and effect any electrics.
Rubbers Seals for the Garage Door
Seals are used in many places around the home. If you are thinking about converting a garage to a living space, for example, you may want to add more effective seals to the door. This is particularly important for the bottom of the door where there is usually a gap. Doing so can help remove uncomfortable drafts and prevent problems with damp.
Rubber Seals for the Front and Back Door
Other places where rubber seals are found are on your property doors. These seals perform a central role in making sure that your home remains warm during the winter and prevent annoying draughts.
It’s relatively easy to replace the rubber seals on a door and can make a big difference to the comfort of your home. A new seal can also have an impact on your energy bills by reducing draughts and cold air.
