Garage Door Bottom Seal - Always Flat

Every couple years I put new seal on the door and it always folds forward and flattens out, then it does not seal right. It does not expand out evenly like I see in pictures.

Anyone solve for this.

Its folding, and taking shape, due to compression against the floor.

I guess I always thought that was what it was supposed to do, I cant see day light leaking under my door so it must be sealing!

It seems your door seal is doing what it should. If you're not happy with it's appearance I would try a different brand or style and see if you like it better.
