Front Door Sealing


The rubber seal around the entire door has either shrunk or just worn over the years. You can see light shining thru between the wall and the door, meaning, we're losing lots of AC/Heat depending upon the time of year. What's the best way to repair?

Front Door Sealing


If the gaps disappears when you push the door shut, make sure the door lock latch is latching the door tightly. But weatherstrips do wear out and/or become compressed.
