Solid Wood

help my old door has cracks around it but is solid wood?

my home is 37 yrs old...our front door is solid wood and the only problem is when standing back I can see a couple of cracks between the door and the frame..lowes wants 349 just to to put on the door and the frame and is would be a steel door or fiberglass.and a new storm door would cost 97 to install..my question is...I can never afford a solid wood door...If I put a high quality larson full glass storm door up will it keep the drafts out...thanks

Hi, Katherine. Good eye to spot this. Measure the door for height and width, then go to a good building center and check out weatherization products.

While even a five dollar roll of self-stick weather stripping will stop the drafts, I'd recommend a better product, like a kit with metal channels that have a gasket running along the edge that will touch the door. These are available in a variety of finishes, like white, black, bright or antique brass, or plain aluminum, and come with the little nails or screws to attach them. A couple of cuts with a hacksaw to trim to size, and nail 'em up so they just touch the door. If not DIY, a decent handyperson could do it for say $20.

While your at it, belly down on the floor to look for a gap at the bottom, too. That may indicate a need for a fresh threshold seal (if there is one), and/or a door "sweep". Same place in the store.

Out here in the cold of a Midwestern winter, a nice storm door is good too, but you may not need that in your area. Getting the main door tight is the main thing.
