Try These Tips For Fixing a Leaky Door

Do you have an exterior door that's less than efficient? Short of replacing it, there are some tricks for fixing, at least temporarily, a leaky door.

Curious about how you can get through the Winter with a slightly lower heating bill? Then check out my tips below.

  • A draft blocker, placed at the bottom of your door, will help to cut drafts. Whenever you're home, place the draft blocker on the inside bottom of the door.
  • Use foam tape, where the door meets the frame, to line the door and make the seal tighter if there are significant leaks.
  • If your door has glass windows, you can use heavy-duty plastic to insulate the glass.
  • How's the bottom door sweep? Give it a close inspection, and if needed, replace the door sweep.
