Weatherstripping entry door to garage
I have a Solid wood plan entry door that leads to my garage. The door seems to have no threshold and there is no "kerf" cut in the jamb for weatherstripping. I noticed I could see light on the bottom side so I removed and replaced with the adhesive "Frost King" stuff. The door became difficult to close and I noticed on the bottom "non-hinge" side I could see light. I replaced it will the non-silicone type and it worked better but I could still see a crack of light on the non-hinge side. Upon closer examination I see the door doesn’t close even. I guess from regular use. What type of weatherstripping is best to use. I see they sell the Screw in type of weather stripping. I also notice when I place the weatherstripping on the top side it tends to lump up on the hinge side. Also the door had a rubber screw in type of sweep. I noticed the sweep makes it difficult to close the door. Should I use the sweep that attaches to the door bottom??? Someone nailed a gold transition strip to the bottom of the door “threshold”.
