How to seal doors?

Hello

I am looking for some suggestions for door seals for the edges. There's is cool breeze of air coming in from outside which makes the whole house colder often and as a result we have to operate the room heaters all the time.

 

Thank you

Re: How to seal doors?

Hello @nsavi,

 

Thank you for sharing your question about sealing your door. If a cold breeze is passing through the gaps of your door, I suggest installing a strip of Raven 5m White Superior Door And Window Weather Strip on the inner perimeter of the door frame. As for the bottom portion of the door, I recommend closing the door and looking at the automatic weather seal and see if it is closing properly. A good installation will usually have the seal touching the floor giving you a good positive seal. If it is slightly lifting up, look closely at the rubber pusher and make sure that it is engaging the seal properly.

If you need further assistance, please let us know.
