How To Replace Door Weather Seal

A door weather seal is placed between the bottom of an exterior door to seal the gap between the door and the floor. The weather seal stops inside air from escaping into the outside, and air from outdoors coming inside, preventing uncomfortable conditions and increased energy consumption.

On average, weatherstripping lasts 3- 5 years, although some products last much longer and some much less. The type of weatherstripping selected and care of the product both affect the duration of time it’ll last. There’s also a plethora of things that may cause the weatherstripping to deteriorate or otherwise become damaged.  Pets and humans can both cause damage to weatherstripping, as can pests, the age of the material, improper care, and various weather conditions.

  • Weather seal that’s bent or otherwise lost shape
