The storm door to my screened-in porch leaks air into my house at the bottom. How do I stop the air leak without making the door hard to open?
buy a rubber gasket that you attach to the bottom with screws. it has metal on top and a rubber strip on bottom. don't know what they are called.
Thanks! I would like to know what they are called.
there are "sweeps" you can get at the hardware store. you cut them to size and screw into the bottom of your door from the outside. You can replace the door sill so that it has a higher profile - which means the sill would meet the bottom of the door more tightly. these are also at hardware store.
Are they called "sweeps"???? I definitely prefer that option, as I will be doing the installation myself.
Here's the page from Home Depot. Not expensive. You will need a hacksaw (maybe - depends on the width of your door and the width of the sweep) pencil (to mark where the holes are) a drill.
Thanks! I will look for that at Home Depot.
