Brown weather stripping

Brown weather stripping absorbs the suns heat. This is not a problem in most areas but here in Southern California it can be. South facing garage doors with little or no shading often causes problems. They vinyl while still elastic tends to droop and melt due to the heat. If the weather stripping has been excessively nailed in place to prevent creeping there can still be issues. After a few years the elasticity will be baked out. What's left will still be brown but under close inspection it's more like a brittle chalk like substance. That is best case. Since all weather stripping is made by the same manufacturer there is no getting around these issues other than to choose another color. We strongly recommend you choose some other color than brown for your weather stripping.
