Find Out the Various Types of Weather Stripping for Doors
Resistance and Affordability for Your Doors with Felt Gasketing
Among the most common types of weather stripping for doors out there, you can find felt gasketing in stores in rolls. This type of weatherstripping is either made out of cotton, polyester, or wool and has a metal strip for reinforcement.
When applying this felt gasketing, you can use glue, staples, or tacks. Many people use felt around their windows and doors, more specifically in the door’s jamb. It usually lasts between one or two years.
The best thing about felt weatherstripping is that it is incredibly inexpensive and available for everyone. Not only that but also it requires no science to install it.
Count on Under Pressure Doors with Tension Strips
Tensions strips (a.k.a. V strips) are plastic seals that are usually self-stick. Having a V strip helps create a protective seal that blocks air drafts. This means that neither air will be coming in nor air will be coming out.
This type of gasketing is installed on the top and sides of doors and windows. You can install it quickly, just cutting the length you need with scissors. Because of its self-stick feature, you’ll need nothing else to fix it.
