A DIY Plan For A Snirt-Free Garage

Do-it-yourselfers continually are looking for ideas to make improvements around the house or property that are relatively easy to accomplish and often help save money.

There are two great products that fit the bill for a DIY project that can save significantly on utility bills in your garage or shop area, while also making for a cleaner and more comfortable environment.

It’s time for you to stop infiltration around your overhead doors and the idea gains even more traction when you realize how easily you can do it yourself.

In many cases, such as garages, the overhead door is actually the gateway to your home. Keeping out air movement and various items and critters is healthy and saves money.

To put it another way — It’s time for you to Stop The Snirt!

Okay, first of all, what is snirt? Traditionally, it is the unsightly and messy combination of snow and dirt that can blow underneath or through the sides of your poorly-sealed overhead door.

In a broader sense, snirt also can be water/rain, leaves, bugs, mice, snow, grime and even snakes moving under your door or through the sides. Heat loss is also a major concern.

Check out the gap on your current overhead door to get an idea of the problem you are dealing with. Did you know that drafts can bring dirt, snow, ice, mud, plus heat and cooling loss through a space of 1/32nd of an inch? Bugs and spiders can creep through a space of only 1/16th of an inch. Mice can enter your garage area through a space the size of a pencil. It’s time to put a stop to all that infiltration.

With our revolutionary SnirtStopper you can indeed Stop The Snirt!

The SnirtStopper system features two revolutionary products — the BottomSealer and SideSealer —  to allow you to create a cleaner and safer indoor area. It also helps you reduce energy bills and provide a more comfortable space by keeping out the cold in winter and the heat in summer.

The BottomSealer, along with the SideSealer (and TopSealer), will close up your overhead and other outside doors just like you seal up the front door of your home. Now is the time to move past that old overhead door stripping that doesn’t work

The BottomSealer is self-adjusting and eliminates gaps of up to two inches – and you don’t have to replace your current seal. The Kevlar-reinforced material will not wear out and mice, along with other critters, will not chew through it!

The system is easy for any do-it-yourselfer to install and all needed hardware is included. You can see additional details at our website, StopTheSnirt.com. There are installation videos on the website and we will be happy to answer any questions you may have about this great sealing system.

Best of all, these products will pay for themselves with the amount of energy you will save.
