How to Replace Worn Weatherstripping Around DoorsBy: Danny Lipford
Replacing worn or damaged weather stripping around exterior doors will save money on your energy bills. Take a piece of the old weather stripping with you to the home improvement store so you can easily match it.
The weather stripping in newer doors fits in a groove in the door casing. To remove it, simply pull it out. Then cut a new piece to length, and insert it in the groove. Older doors can be retrofit using rolls of self-adhesive foam weather stripping or rigid strips that are nailed in place.
