I have an overhead garage door with automatic door opener installed. When it
rains water is coming into the garage from under the door. I have weather
stripping installed under the door, but it doesn't seem to help.
Is there anything else I can do?
Saw cut and chip out a recess for the door to sit it. This
assumes that the garage floor is slightly higher (1/2 to
1" )higher than the driveway surface. Better builders cast this
recess into the concrete when it is poured.

Is the door closing properly? There should be an adjustment if the door is
not making proper contact. The driveway shouldalso be pitched away for
water runoff. That will be a difficult problem to correct but it may be
possible to build up a little berm right at the door. .
