    Hi I've got a slight draught coming under the bottom of a uPVC front door. I've adjusted the hinges and it's not as bad now but I'm wondering if there is a product suitable for fitting in the recess in the bottom of the door frame which is about 1cm wide - has anyone tried a brush seal in this? I'm worried that the self adhesive strips will just come off with use. I've also renewed the black door seals around the door but this hasn't completely cured the problem.

    I think another problem is cold air coming up from where the wood flooring joins the door frame - it's a bit of a botched job with a 5mm gap and I'm open to suggestions about how to seal this?

    Hi Andy, I have exactly the same issue. Did you ever get the issue resolved?
