Vinyl seal is best used when the floor is level and free of cracks or other imperfections. If the floor does have issues, brush seal is the perfect solution, brush seals will conform to the floor regardless of any cracks or other imperfections. A vinyl seal will give a better overall seal if the floor is level and is free of imperfections but brush seal will give the best possible seal when there are issues with the floor.

These sweeps are primarily used on exterior doors but we have found that installing these door sweeps on interior doors greatly cuts down on room to room drafts in a dwelling.
Garage Door Sweep is installed on the inside of the door.
Remove any existing door sweep. Close the door and working from the inside, position the door sweep on the bottom of the door, keep one edge flush with the edge of the door and mark the other end of the retainer of the door sweep at the other edge of the door. Pull the weather seal out past the mark on the retainer where you will be cutting. Using a hack saw, cut the retainer, then pull the weather seal back into place and leave 1/2″ of extra weather seal sticking out of both ends, then cut the weather seal. After the install is complete you will trim off any excess weather seal, it is best to use a utility knife with a new, sharp blade to cut the weather seal. Now, position the sweep on the bottom of the door with both edges of the retainer even with the edge of the door, bring the sweep down to the floor. With the sweep making contact with the floor, mark all the pre drilled slots onto the door. Typically, drilling pilot holes at the bottom of the slotted mark on the door will allow you the perfect amount of adjustability downward with the sweep to get a perfect seal along the entire bottom of the door. Once all the holes are pre drilled, simply install the sweep and press the sweep down so that the screws are at the top of the slots on the sweep and tighten the screws. Once the door sweep is installed trim the weather seal as needed and lightly crimp the retainer on the ends to hold the weather seal in place.
These sweeps can be used for interior and exterior doors, doors such as Masonite exterior doors, modern door, home door, screen doors, back door, side door, garage entry doors, entrance doors, double doors. This is a great upgrade to any entry door and the energy savings realized will quickly off set the low up front cost of the door sweep
