Buying guide for your weatherstripping
Although it may seem a fairly simple product to choose, there are materials with greater advantages over others. Similarly, not all of them can be used in the same conditions.
The thickness of the space underneath the doors always varies. You should also be aware of the difference with window seals.
Therefore, you should remember the following factors when it comes to materials in order to enjoy a good purchase:
- Foam. This is more suitable for small spaces and cracks. Similarly, it is perfect for small windows. It is not suitable for large or heavy entrances due to its delicacy.
- Rubber. This material is more resistant to corrosion and weather conditions, however, and like the previous one, it is only suitable for windows.
- Brush. These weatherseals are made from PVC and are perfect for larger openings. They can completely prevent air from entering, as well as dust and dirt from the outside.
Fitting the weatherstripping: easier, impossible
Now that you know how to choose your product safely, it’s time to cover the air vents.
Follow the steps below and your house will become a well-preserved vault from the outside. Let’s start with the window.
- Shake the space where you will place the weatherstrip properly to remove the dirt.
- Keep the window closed.
- Disinfect the surface of the frame. You’ll only need some alcohol and a handkerchief to dry.
- Measure the total length of the window so that you don’t get too much material.
- Stick the weatherstripping on step by step to make sure it’s not flawed.
- While doing so, don’t stop pressing, so that the product adheres completely.
And for the door, remember these directions:
- Fixed weatherstripping is a sticky strip, which you must remove whenever you open the door. You can put them on just like adhesive tape.
- Up-and-over door seals must be attached with screws. One part will remain completely free and cover the entire opening without scratching.
- Roller weatherseals are similar to carpets. You can put them on and take them off as often as you like, without having to stick or screw them down.
