When it comes to your exterior doors on your St. Louis home, you need to choose a product that is attractive, durable, and is designed with energy efficiency in mind. After all, this entryway to your home likely gets used dozens of times a day. After some time, the weatherstripping can start to weaken, and this can cause the door to start letting in (or out) more and more air. When this happens, it can cause your heating and cooling systems to work extra hard to keep the inside of your home comfortable.
When the time comes to get a replacement door, it will also be a smart decision to also get the weatherstripping replaced.
