Plastic in doors

Do you really need the plastic sheet that is inside roll up doors? I read it was to stop condensation and rust. If that is true does anyone know where you can get new ones?

You can probably order them, but what I did was just go to Lowe's or Home Depot and get some heavy duty plastic sheeting. They sell it for drop clothes, or you can get large contractor bags. They sell them in a variety of weights measured in Mils. I bought a roll of that and used 3M strip caulk around the edges of the door. Stuck the plastic sheeting to it and trimmed it with a razor blade. Then I installed the door panel. They call them splash shields usually, and they are there so that any water that gets by the window seals stays inside the door and drains rather than soaking the back of the door panels and damaging them.

HD sells a 3Mil contractor trash bag that holds up to a ton of abuse that could easily be cut to size.

Contractor bags are usually black I think. The stuff I bought was drop cloth I think. It was either 3 or 5mil and it was sort of a milky white. Not really white or clear, but somewhere in between. It was a few bucks for a roll of it at Lowe's and there was a lot left over for other things.

The new water barrier is a molded foam material, much nicer than the original plastic. I'm using the pond liner.
