How to seal exterior doors from wildfire smoke
Wildfire smoke gets inside our home through our doors and windows. I’m focusing on the doors right now and will move on to the windows when those are addressed.
We had new doors installed a few years ago. You can see light around them, and they’ve since shifted and the gaps aren’t the same width. They don’t close nicely, either.
We’re unable to afford someone to repair them and seal against smoke. Can you recommend some online tutorials to help us figure out how to fix these problems? I’m not really sure where to start. The person who installed them isn’t available.
I did adjust the bottom plate with a screw driver, and that helped, but the side with the handle and lock has a gap that widens closer to the bottom. We’re seeing daylight from the crack. I’d sure appreciate some guidance on what to do. They don’t lock nicely. We have to push on the door. It’s been pretty frustrating.
