Has anyone found a good product for insulating around doors?


I have tried many different ones and they either leave a sticky residue when you remove or don't stay put. I am not talking about the ones for the bottom of the door you screw in, but the sides where it meets the door frame.

    There is a type you nail in with tiny nails. It is foam covered with vinyl. It used to be the only type used-before the stick on kind. You should be able to find this in any big hardware store.

    I only use the metal strip with the rubber gasket kind.... no glue at all. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YJyc3e_EgL0 only thing I've found that really works.

    I use SS staples to attach felt-like strips inside the door jam. It holds up well and last for years. On the outside I like to use the foam attached to wood up against the door. It too is easy to install and remove.
