Weather Strip Tips
You should choose weather stripping that has a good resistance to friction and changes in temperatures. For instance, weather stripping that is on the bottom of a door can potentially be dragged across the carpet or deteriorate from constant foot traffic. The weather stripping that you decide on should effectively seal the window or door when it is closed without affecting the way it functions.
Not sure if you have weather stripping around your doors or windows? There are a couple of ways to determine if you do or not.
- Have a friend stand on the opposite side of the door from you with a flashlight. Close the door and have them shine the flashlight around the edges of the door. If you can see the light shining anywhere around the perimeter, this is an indication that your weather stripping needs to be replaced.
- Stand on the locked side of the door with a dollar bill in hand. If you’re able to slide the bill through the door and the doorjamb, you likely need new weather stripping.
