Under Door Seal Replacement
See attached photos. My house is 2-3 years old. Seven of the exterior doors are premium Masonite wood. They are 8 ft tall and very heavy. The rubber under door seal on one door started coming apart 1-2 years ago. Didn’t last very long. Maybe defective or bad install.
Finally remembered to replace it and it appears the seal must be permanently attached to the door by staples or something else. My previous experience with exterior doors meant sliding the seal out of a track, bringing it to the hardware store for replacement and sliding the new one in. Quick and easy. Has progress reversed this easy project to now make it difficult? Do I have to take the door off? I can’t do that myself, too heavy. Thanks.
