Air-Sealing Door Frame Joints
I have 2 prehung, outswing, flangeless entry doors to install this week, and I’m trying to be more attentive to air-sealing than ever before. Is there anything I can do about the seams circled in the photo below?
Had I built frames, I could’ve carefully spread sealant on the mating faces, but too late now… I can run a fillet of caulk on the inside corners of the frame, but not these vertical seams (unless I get nutty and route out a recess where they are, then pack that with caulk). Can’t tape em since it’d show. Would appreciate any thoughts!
