Maintenance Monday: Weatherstripping!

Fall is here and that means it’s the perfect time to check on your weatherstripping!  Open all your exterior doors and check the weatherstripping; if yours is crumbly or has gaps, replace it.

You can remove the old weatherstripping with a utility knife and clean the surface with household cleaner, getting as much of the old debris and adhesive off as possible. When the surface is dry, apply peel-and-stick foam weatherstripping. Start at the top of the door frame and work your way down, being careful not to stretch the foam strip, which can weaken the adhesive.
