Autumn and winter are coming, which means rain and low temperatures are on their way. That’s why it’s important to check that your windows and doors are secured. If not, this problem can be solved by replacing the window and door seals. Even durable, solid seals, over time can lose their protective abilities. Thus no longer protecting rooms from moisture, escaping warm air or small insects entering.
When choosing a seal, pay attention primarily to the size of the gap. The window and door seals must be precisely matched to it. It is necessary to choose the shape (profile) of the seal to fit the shape and size of the hole you are trying to seal. Our offer includes seals made of various materials and for various purposes, including:
Once you have chosen the seal there is nothing that’s stopping you from installing it yourself. First, remove the old seal- it should not be difficult to unstick it, you can use a knife or other thin tool. It is important to clean the surface very good so there isn’t any glue residue, dirt or dust left and then dry the surface very well as well.
Choose the width and length of the seal. For an example: P, E, V or D profiles are sold in a double coil, which means that to obtain a single P-profile seal, you should split the purchased belt along the middle. The seals can also be cut freely to a specific length. Also, at the joints (e.g. the door corner) you can cut both strips at a 45° angle. Now all you have to do is put the seals in the gap or, in self-adhesive models, peel off the adhesive securing band and glue it, making sure you do not stretch it too much.
Good insulation of such key places as doors and windows can reduce home heating costs by up to 35%. Steigner window and door seals are available in an online Amazon store. They allow you to avert the leakage problem for many years, and the wide range makes it possible to choose a product that exactly fits your needs.
