6 ways to weatherproof your front door

Here at Door Superstore, we’ve put together a quick guide with six easy ways to weatherproof your front door before winter arrives.

One of the easiest and most common ways of weatherproofing your home and the front door is to add a weatherstrip around the opening of your door. A weatherstrip is a length of material that sits around movable components, such as doors and windows, to fill gaps and prevent air from entering the property, whilst still allowing the door or window to open and close.

Weatherstrips are generally super easy to install. They can be cut to size and are also often secured with a self-adhesive strip. Weatherstrips are generally manufactured from rubber and/or foam, but can also be purchased in silicone, felt and vinyl.

Install a weatherstrip along the bottom or even around the whole door frame to minimise heat loss, and draughts and even in some circumstances prevent water ingress.






Caulk is another way of preventing draughts and heat loss from occurring, particularly in cooler winter months. Caulk is often applied at the time of installation of the door to prevent draughts and moisture from entering the property. However, caulk does tend to wear down and deteriorate over time.

Old and damaged caulk can easily be removed using tools that are as simple and easy as a flathead screwdriver or a knife. Once the old caulk has been removed, a new layer of caulk can be applied – caulk is often supplied in a tube with a nozzle which allows for precise application.

3.Draught excluders

Draught excluders are also available to minimise heat loss and prevent draughts from entering the home through gaps beneath the front door.

The most common form of draught excluder for your front door consists of a plastic or metal fixing plate, with thick bristles attached. The bristles allow the door to open and close effectively, but prevent draughts from entering the house. The bristles can also be cut down to size if they are longer than required to cover the gap between the door and the floor.
