How not to have weatherstrip stick to painted doors?
After carefully prepping, sanding, and applying two coats of pricey semi-gloss latex with a smooth surface roller, I have a beautiful front door, almost looking like it was sprayed on. Having removed the old aluminum and grey rubber weather strip, I let it dry for a WEEK at mid-sixties temps, with NO weatherstrip. I install the NEW weatherstrip, (aluminium with a soft grey synthetic rubber bulb seal on the exterior of the door jamb). Two days later, I open the door and paint has stuck to to the weatherstrip. (Gack!) I am thinking WD-40 or spray silicone dry lube on the weather strip might prevent that. Any clues from my fellow DIY'ers? Thanks!
