What kind of weather stripping?

jaxoMarch 14, 2011

I'm looking for something to fill in these gaps around the doors without making it difficult to close the door or require slamming or pushing against the door to close the deadbolt.

Look at the light leaking around the door. I can feel cold air in the winter and bugs probably come into the house through these caps.

There is no weather stripping on the jamb?

If there is a slot, use the kind shown in the link.

If there is no slot, The next easiest type to install is an old fashioned brass or copper V shaped strip that is nailed to the jamb.

Here is a link that might be useful: Weather stripping video
