Hi and welcome waldjerry, to the best DIY'r site on the web.

Take a picture and post it that is usually the best way to have a qualified response. Are you talking about the bottom of the door or the perimeter of the door?

Hey Waldjerry,

Replacing the weather stripping on the door isn't very hard to do, but very effective when it comes to saving energy. The weather stripping runs along the inside of the door jamb where the door shuts against. There are many different self adhering weather striping tapes you can get that just stick on. Do you need to do the whole door? You can also get replacement pieces that profile's look like a 'Z' and they tuck into the door jamb. That's what is usually on the door from the factory, but let us know more about the project.-Gregg
