Door stop to door distance for kerf weatherstripping
I have a new 2″ thick door, and a door jamb which is 2.25″ from interior edge to the door stop (and a few inches past the stop of course, for a total of 7 in). Hence when I close the door, without weather stripping, the door edge is flush with the jamb on the hinge side, and 0.25″ past the jamb edge on the lock side.
I purchased frost king kerf weatherstripping from HD and now can’t easily close the door without the door being about 0.25″ above the door – ie it doesn’t close far enough. The door can compress the weatherstripping to close fully and where the door and jam are flush, but that takes some muscular effort.
Is there a kerf weatherstripping that doesn’t take up so much space? What is the optimal amount of space to leave for weather stripping- something more than a quarter inch I suppose, or do I need to shave down the door stop a bit?
