Question Roll-up Doors Gap

I suppose I should ask this question to the makers but thought I'd throw it in here first. I have a two door (roller doors) garage that have a considerable gap at the top when closed which lets the wind & insects etc inside. Has anyone seen or had this problem & if so,how was the gap filled so the doors could still function normally. Thanks in advance.James.

I have roller doors each end of my single car garage. i just used wood planking from the roofline down till it just sits in front of the flat roller. Theres less than a half inch gap when the door is down.

Can you take some pictures, James? That sounds a bit strange. Mine has a flexible weather seal all he way around the exterior door frame that closes any gaps when the door is completely closed.
This is what it should look like:

I have a steel garage with that same type of roll up door. I just store my car in there so I never gave it much thought. If I wanted to insulate it would be the same issue. I wonder if something like this might work if you ran a wood header above the door. https://www.northshorecommercialdoor...ader-seal.html then attached the seal to it. Maybe a garage door installer would have an idea. Here are some pics of how too install.https://sep.yimg.com/ty/cdn/yhst-164...?t=1564689518&

if you look at the roller brackets they are adjustable for in and out play...
