how to fix a draft under a door

In this video, I start by showing the draft under a front door.  I explain how it got to be that way.  Then continue to show removing the old door threshold.  Next, I clean the area and install wood strips to adjust the door threshold height.  After attaching the wood, I paint it to improve aesthetics and to help preserve the wood.


Next, I show cutting the new threshold to size and installing it.  The hardest part was installing the rubber seal that contacts the bottom of the door.
