    Hello all - I need to replace the seal along the bottom of an exterior door on my garage as the thin wool pile weatherstripping has disintegrated in the corner and is allowing water to enter into the garage during heavy rain storms. My question is whether there is any better products I can use? It seems any other traditional weatherstripping would be too wide for the door to close properly.

    This particular threshold is only 4.75 inches wide and there is not enough room to install a door bottom seal. The door doesn't sit over the threshold, it just is supposed to seal against the lip protruding up as you see in the pictures. Any feedback is appreciated, thanks!

    Thanks! This option may work, I'll have to see if I can remove the existing threshold to install this as this looks like it is an integrated pre-hung door.
