If you have an exterior commercial wood door at your home or business, you may be wondering how weather stripping your door can increase your energy and money efficiency. For this project, you may be able to do it on your own if you have the proper equipment and knowledge. You will want to obtain safety glasses, a hack saw, drill and bits, and possibly a screw driver for best results.
Choosing the proper size weather strip for your door can be easy by measuring the doorway you are using and removing the old weather strip for comparison. You should make sure the screw holes on your new weather strip line up the way they do on your old one, or else you will need to drill new ones. You then should mark your new weather strip exactly where you need to saw off the extra material, and fasten it to your door using the original screwed that were already there. Testing the door afterwards to be sure there is no dragging is a great way to prevent going back and correcting work.
