I have noticed a huge gap in my front door and so I went online and did some research and found some videos how to weather strip. I will post the link here later for you all.
So. Today, after I go to the gym I am going to the Home Depot to pick some up. I am going to get the peel and stick kind for my door and the putty kind for my sliding doors, (I have two).
My question is: On my front door I notice the kind of stripping that goes all the way around (metal with a rubber lip). It is not in good shape. I think if I take it off it will look really bad, so I think I should just leave it on. Or... should I replace it? Is it hard to replace??? Is it much more expensive than the peel and stick?
I plan on buying little insulator pads for my light switches too. Does anyone have any ideas what else to use beside those store bought ones, or even how much they are? Maybe I will just do a few at a time.
Any other handy ways to shore up my drafty old condo would be greatly appreciated. Please remember I am not a handy girl, just someone who can't pay to have these things done by someone, so needs to be simple and cheap! ;-)
