Prevent door bottoms from rotting or rusting by installing a drip edge.

A standard door bottom drip edge can easily be cut and attached to the bottom of a door, blending in after caulking and painting. Most exposed doors rot or rust from the bottom because the bottom edge cannot be protected. The drip edge keeps the water from curling under the door, instead allowing it to drip onto the threshold.
The new drip edge primed, installed and caulked to the door. Like most exposed metal doors, rust was beginning to form on the face from the bottom.
After painting, the drip edge looks like part of the door.
