My husband bought foam weather stripping to seal the gaps in some exterior doors. He measured the gaps and then bought one thickness of weather stripping that he thought would work. We've done this before without any luck, but we thought a better grade of this foam weather stripping would work.
Well... this stuff doesn't stay where it's placed (it peels right up) even though we washed & dried the doorframe first. It is too thick to shut the door but is the right width, and no other product (my husband claims) would have worked. We tried cutting down the thickness but it doesn't help. He's been to the store three times on this project to compare.
What do expert handymen use? We are stumped and don't want to keep buying more products and then throwing them away.
