Top Weather Stripping related questions
Coincidentally, the materials used in sealing doors and windows are also called weatherstrippings. These are available at most hardware stores near you. These materials vary from felt, tubular rubber, tape, foam tape, door sweeps, silicone, and vinyl weather stripping, to name a few.
You can install the material yourself. However, you will need to choose the right type of weatherstrip, do all the measurements, cut the material, install it yourself, and ensure there aren’t any air leaks. It’s great if you have the time and are good with your hands. If not, it’s best to leave it to a professional.
Not necessarily. Taskers typically have their own set of tools to complete the job. However, you may need to provide the weather stripping material itself. If you’re unsure of what you need, you can consult with your Tasker. You can even ask them to drop by a hardware store and purchase other items required before arriving at your doorstep.
It varies depending on the type of weather your house or commercial property is exposed to all year round. It’s best to have a Tasker inspect your weather stripping at least once a year to determine if it needs to be replaced. If you notice any airflow or wind coming through, then it’s time for a replacement.

What do weather stripping services include?
Weather stripping is the process of sealing the space in between doors, windows, and their respective frames. This protects the interior of your residential or commercial property from the elements, mainly rain and water, by redirecting or returning it out. Think of it as a way to make your windows and doors slightly waterproof or water-resistant. Deflecting water can lessen any water damage that may occur over time.
Another important job of weather stripping is to insulate your space. Booking weather stripping near you can help you keep out cold air but keep interior air in to maximize your home’s heating and air conditioning systems. This, in turn, will save more energy and reduce costs. Another bonus is that it can also help you keep a few bugs out, and who wouldn’t want that? Here’s what to expect when booking commercial door or storm door weather stripping on Airtasker:
Check which opening needs weather stripping
Weather stripping needs to be replaced every few years due to wear and tear. If you find any torn, cracked, or peeling areas, it’s time to have a Tasker take a look and replace it. Damage will be evident, especially if it’s a patio or exterior door’s weather stripping.
It’s also a great time to check if your windows or doors need repair. Maybe you’ve noticed cracks on your door frame or damage on your window sash? It’s best to have these fixed right away as it may affect your door or window’s weather stripping. Even if there are no visible signs of damage, you can let your Tasker check and assess as an extra precaution.
Picking the right weather stripping
Let your Tasker assess your window and door seals before purchasing the necessary materials. Weather sealing is a relatively inexpensive and easy process. Materials for rubber, foam or vinyl weather stripping can easily be bought from your local store. More complicated sealing materials such as tension seals, reinforced silicone, and interlocking metal channels can also be installed by professionals on our platform.
Preparing the weather stripping installation area
Before installing anything new, Taskers will first remove your old garage door or patio door’s weather stripping. They’ll also clean and smoothen it out so that it’s easy to measure and install the new material. Once that’s done, your Taskers will take measurements to ensure everything is accurately installed to prevent air leaks.
Installing and testing out the new weather stripping
Taskers may install a small seal or weatherstrip to your door and window and test it out to ensure it closes right. If that’s working, they will then install the material to the entire frame. After installation, your Tasker can check for any air leaks and test them out to ensure your window or door closes properly. Your residential or commercial door weather stripping is complete!
