Weatherstripping

My husband always took care of this type of issue, but now that he is gone, I am learning to deal with these.

I have read that magnetic weatherstripping is the best. Initially, I was considering only weatherstripping the outside doors, but an now thiking about the windows, too.

So I have two questions:

1. In your opinions what is the best weatherstripping for doors?

2. And, what is the best weatherstripping for windows?

I am not doing the installation myself; a handyman is going to do it.

Understood the doors are exterior. What is the door type, fiberglass, steel, wood?

Are the windows horizontal sliders, vertical sliders, or casements?

Here's a link that might help. There are more on weatherstripping by using your search engine.

Thank you for the link. It helped me understanding that one does not fit all when it comes to weatherstripping. I have decided to let the company the handyman work for furnish the weatherstripping.
