Weatherproofing or draught-proofing your door is something that can prolong the life of the door and its frame, keep the warmth in your home and even keep your heating bills down. If your tradesman is replacing old weatherproofing and draught-proofing then they will need to remove any insulation material before starting the job. This may mean unscrewing brushes from the bottom of a door or stripping out insulations tapes on the side of the door. They will then clean and dry these parts before applying new weatherproofing or draught-proofing with adhesive, in self-adhesive strips or by screwing them to the door or door frame.
Whether they are replacing current insulation or starting anew, your tradesman will ensure that all gaps between the door and door frame (when the door is fully closed) are sealed. They can also fit insulation strips to fill larger gaps at the bottom of the door or add brushes here for a snug and wind-proof finish. They will also make sure that any gaps or holes in the door are plugged with filler and painted or varnished over to create a weatherproof seal.
