    Hi all,

    Last winter, I noticed that our front door had a hell of a breeze comming through it.

    With the end of summer I thought id look into draftproofing the door, but have noticed the following:

    The external door frame has been scribed to accept the weatherboard, which runs the full width of the door.

    Is this correct? Im not a chippy, but this seems illogical when it comes to draftproofing the door.

    Also, would anyone have any suggestions how to draft proof this area?

    I don't really want one of them sausage dog things my nans used to have :)

    Thanks in advance

    Paul

    Just an update. I've walked round a few housing estates today and have my answer.
