I'm looking to keep cold air from coming in from under my doors.

I've always used towels and the like but is there something better and more convenient that I can use to help keep the cold air out. Keep in mind that I will be coming in and out of these doors frequently, the front door more than the back. Thank you.

I totally know what you mean when you say you need something that will stop the cold air from entering in your home. I did some research and I found a link while searching in Google that will give you instructions on how to make your own "door draft stoppers," to save a little money. I'm also attaching the link to Google with "door draft stoppers" that you can purchase. I hope these links are helpful to you on finding your answer!!!!!

Thank you for your question.

I can understand wanting to stop the drafts of winter invading your house.

There many products in the home centers designed for different applications for this problem. Most places will ask you a few questions about how you door closes and if you have a carpet or tile floor.

Some doors are metal and some are plastic or wood and it will depend on how much you want to spend and which style will work for your application.

Here is a product you might want to look at to see if it will work for you. Twin Draft Guard®

They slip under the door and seal from both sides.

I found them on-line and it looks like something I am going to try for my entrance doors for this winter.

Many of the other types have not worked well in my application of a french door.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.
