Questions and Answers
Q: Great. First, I just want to say that I've watch multiple of your videos and they've been really informative so thanks for those. Anyway, my problem: I have a gap under my front entry door (attached a couple pictures of the door/gap that I happened to have on my phone, but can send others once I get home if needed). Right now there is no threshold or sweep. There is just some floor trim at the transition from wood flooring to concrete step. My main concerns are dust, bugs, and insulation (not really water as the front door opens up to a raised and covered porch). The gap is <1/2", probably about 7/16" which can be seen in the picture and the door swings in. I'd also like to avoid trimming the bottom of the door if possible, so I've been looking at lower profile saddle thresholds to pair with a sweep or a bumper threshold, but I'm not really sure if I'm on the right track. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks! Let me know if you need anymore information or better pictures. Here are the pictures:

A: Chad - thank you for the photos. I think your best, easiest to install and most elegant solution is to not trim your door to accommodate a threshold, which door sweeps would require, but to install an automatic door bottom on each door as seen here:

An Automatic Door Bottom functions when the plunger contacts the jamb, the drop bar seal actuates from the hinge side first allowing multiple compression points and I have a video review here:

These would be mounted on the exterior side and seal down on top of your existing floor. Your 7/16 - 1/2" gap is also ideal and I am confident this is the easiest and most effective path to close off the bottom of your doors.

Q: Thanks! I think I'm going to go with that. Can you trim the door bottom down for me? The video said you're only supposed to trim it 2". I think mine will need more than that trimmed off. Also, do you have any suggestions for replacing the trim? I attached a picture. It's just nailed in and not very secure. Just thinking I should change that out as well while I'm at it. Image here:

thanks - Chad

A: Indeed we can send the units out of the exact length that you specify, and when ordering the material simply indicate that neck length in the comment field when adding two the cart.

Regarding your trim piece it's a little difficult to know exactly what the profile is quite frankly I would be very tempted to not remove it and replace it but to Simply Reese accurate to the existing floor.

Q: Hey Richard, Thanks for the support. John did reach out to me. I’m putting together another order for some more sweeps. I was wondering, Do you know what is the best caulk for sealing the cracks around aluminum windows ? Do you guys sell it ? and if not can you direct me to one that Home Depot sells ? The color of the windows are a dark charcoal. Are polyurethane sealants the best ?
A: Polyurethane is an exceptional product and I have used it with great success for years. However when I have a choice I elect to use the CRL 777BRZ Butyl Rubber Sealant - Bronze as seen here:

Because of the flexibility in applications (I can do different types of jobs with one product) which are detailed on the product page as indicated at the above link.

Q: Hi, I'm interested in getting door sweeps for the front and rear doors of my residence. I'd like to get your recommendations for the right products. Both doors are 1.75" wood, and both have sloped aluminum thresholds. It appears that both have gaps of approximately 5/16". The rear door is 31 7/8" wide, and the front door is 41" wide. Currently, I have "L-shaped" sweeps that screw in from the bottom of the door; they're vinyl, and are disintegrating (very hot Summers, and cold Winters, with no storm doors). The row house is contemporary, so I'm looking for sweeps that have a relatively low profile (I don't think I need a rain drip, for example, given the sloped threshold). I'd prefer aluminum, with a flexible gasket that will endure a number of years! I was looking at the Pemko shoes, but it appears anything for a 1.75" door will be visible from the front. If need be I can do that, but wanted to get your advice.
A: I would install mortise automatic door bottoms as seen here:

Click Here

This will give you an extremely elegant way by which to seal the bottom of the door and do so in a concealed fashion.

Though I disagree with your conclusion regarding a drip cap - we find that equipment is obligatory to properly seal a door.
