What do you recommend for interior garage walls at bases?

Garage is finished with drywall and baseboards but there is a 1-2 inch gap to concrete floor. Farm behind our home and preparing for winter. Increased rodent activity this summer around the outside and our garage door rubber base strip was replaced after being chewed up and all side stripping also needs replaced.

Answer:

The best solution would be an additional baseboard or moving the boards lower so that you have a solid barrier between the baseboards and the flooring. Spaces larger then about 2” are difficult to treat with other exclusion products since this is considered a fairly large space to fill. You could use a foam such as the Pur Black Foam to fill a long area like this, but keep in mind that you will need a foam gun to apply this product, and you may need to layer multiple beads to fill that entire space. Another option is Xcluder fabric, which is a very thick mixed material fabric that you can stuff into the space. Be sure you wear thick gloves when handling this product, such as those in this kit.
