Importance of a weatherstrip on your new door 

Your door is there to add beauty to your home, protect you from intruders, and stand as a barrier against the outside weather. A way to enhance your door is by adding a weatherstrip to it it. 

Many homeowners have discovered the use of a weatherstrip, but let us explain it to you if you haven’t yet. A weatherstrip fits in between your door and the door frame. It usually sticks to the doorframe and makes for an easy installation to your entryway.

 A door will be installed, and sometimes there will be spots, at the bottom, side, or top, of the door that still brings in some of that outside weather. Wind, heat from the sunshine, and rain might come in from the little open spots. Every piece is sized differently to fit in the gaps that are there when the door is closed.  

Weatherstrips 

These strips come in different sizes and materials. There are also other types of weather strips for spaces with different shapes. You can pick the kind of weatherstrip you want by examining how much that door is opened. Look at the materials available and choose from there. 

Weatherstrip materials include foam, felt, vinyl, bronze, aluminum, and stainless steel. Once you have decided, the next step is to install. Consider weatherstrips for your doors if you haven’t done so already. If you need advice on which one to get, don’t hesitate to give us a call.
