A carpenter or joiner should be able to give you advice on how best to repair or replace any weatherproofing or draught-proofing on your door. The surface of the door should be treated with a good quality paint or sealant, but it is the area around the door that can best be altered to help with weatherproofing and draught-proofing.
Replacing or repairing rubber seals, raised thresholds, metal strips or brushes on the bottom of the door can all improve the seal between door and frame when the door is closed. Your tradesman should first check the door to see where draughts may be coming through before deciding on the best solution. They will then stick the draught-proofing or weatherproofing prevention strips on with adhesive or screw in items such as brushes on the base of the door. They will also be sure to use filler on any gaps in the door or door frame where the wind may get in.
