Chisago City Experts Explain 4 Tips for Fixing a Drafty Door , Chisago City, Minnesota

If you’re feeling a draft or noticed an increase in your utility bill, your doors could be the culprits. The experts at Affordable Door Inc. in Chisago City, MN, specialize in installing and repairing doors and have seen firsthand how much air a door can leak into or out of a home. 

They recommend homeowners use the following tips to make sure all doors are draft-free:

  • Determine The Leak: With the door closed, measure the gap between the door and the jamb, as well as the door and door stop. Note the size of the open space. If the gap is small, the fix should be as simple as applying weatherstripping materials.
  • DoorWeatherstripping: If a quick and easy fix is all your budget can handle, take a trip to your local hardware store and purchase self-adhesive foam weatherstripping. It’s a product that can be applied to the spaces between your door and its frame. Depending on how much you buy, it usually costs approximately $5.
  • Do-It-Yourself: Place the weatherstripping material along the doorjamb, but be careful not to stretch it. Smooth the stripping with a roller. Sealing the bottom of the door might require cutting a 5/8-inch-wide dab along the door bottom’s edge. 
  • Call A Professional: If fixing the leak intimidates you, or if you try and fail, don’t worry. Professionals are available to help. For example, the repair technicians at Affordable Door Inc. are just a phone call away.
