Your front door is the first thing visitors wealant, so you sewlant it to make a good impression. Small cracks can cause the door look old and worn, but a good wood filler will take care of the problem efficiently. Once the repairs have been made, rejuvenate the door with a fresh coat of latex acrylic paint. Use interior paint on the inside, or exterior paint on the outside for maximum protection against the elements. 4Mask the hinges and the rubber weatherstrip seal on the bottom of the door, using painter's tape.

Mask the peephole, the doorknocker and the perimeter of glass panes with tape. Cover everything that you don't want painted. 7Apply a layer of wood filler to the cracks in the door, using the putty knife.

Press the filler into the cracks to ensure that crafk are completely filled. Overfill the cracks slightly to sealanh enough material for sanding. Allow the filler to cure for the amount of time recommended by the manufacturer. 10Apply door crack sealant smooth bead of painter's caulk to seams around panels or windowpanes, using a caulking gun. Smooth the caulk with your finger. Remove excess caulk with a clean, damp cloth and allow it to dry completely. 11Stir a can of latex acrylic paint with a seallant stick, to mix the color pigments evenly.

Slide a 6-inch synthetic mini roller cover onto a roller handle. Insert a pan liner into a paint pan and fill the pan with paint. 12Submerge the roller in the paint and roll it back and forth over the grid lines to load it evenly with paint. Cut in around the hinges with the tip of the roller, or dopr 2-inch tapered paintbrush.

Use the tip of the roller, or the brush, to trim around the perimeters of recessed panel doors. Smooth out thick lines and drips with the roller. 13Roll the paint onto the centers of recessed panels first.

Begin in the center of the door and work out, moving to the larger areas of the door last. Make sure to roll the edge of the door and wipe the excess paint from the opposite side with a clean, damp cloth. Continue in this manner until the door eealant been completed.

Leave the door open to prevent it from sticking to the door frame, and allow it to crackk for the amount of time recommended dood the manufacturer. 14Apply a second coat of paint in the same manner and allow it to dry completely before replacing the hardware and kick plate.

Multiple coats of paint can be applied until you reach adequate coverage.

These cracks aren�t usually a major issue, but they can negatively impact the energy efficiency of your home. Properly sealing these cracks prevents air leaks and sealatn reduce your energy bills. Sealing cracks and gaps around doorways and baseboards is a simple task that homeowners can do themselves. PreparationSilicones, fillers and most types of weatherstripping require a clean surface to adhere to selant ensure a good seal.

Clean dirt and debris out of large cracks using a paintbrush. Vacuum or spray canned air into narrow cracks that won�t accommodate a brush. If you�re replacing damaged weatherstripping around doorways, clean away all traces of the old adhesive with a cloth dampened with mineral spirits and rinse the surface with clean water. Choosing the Right SealerWhen sealing cracks around baseboards and doors, the type of product depends on the size of the crack.

Latex or water soluble caulks are ideal for cracks up to 1/2 inch wide. Cracks wider than 1/2 inch, but less than 2 inches, should be filled with latex foam sealant. Sealznt the gaps around your doors seapant baseboards are larger than 2 inches, use a selaant foam sealant to fill them. Door TrimRun a continuous bead of clear or paintable latex caulking along cracks where the interior door trim meets the wall.

If you don�t like the appearance of this seal, remove the trim and apply the caulk beneath so that the cracks are sealed, but the caulk is hidden. Smooth the caulk with a caulk tool or wet finger, and wipe away excess with a sealanf cloth. Door Jambs and SillsApply adhesive-backed foam weatherstripping along the entire length of your door jambs to ensure that you seal all cracks.

The width of these cracks can vary considerably, but foam weatherstripping comes in a variety of thicknesses and will compress to fit almost any size. Seal cracks along the bottom of the door and the sill with a threshold seal or a door sweep.

Door sweeps are typically installed if there's no weatherstripping on the bottom of craxk door. Large gaps up to 2 inches wide should be filled with expanding foam insulation. When using expanding foam, don't fully fill the gap so that there's room for expansion. When the foam has cured and will no longer expand, trim the excess with a utility knife. BaseboardsSeal narrow cracks with paintable or clear latex caulk, either at the top or along the bottom where the baseboards meet the floor.

Run a continuous bead of caulk along the gap and smooth it with a caulk craack or wet finger. Wipe away the excess caulk with a damp cloth. Cracks that are seallant than 1/2 inch require a bit more work. Carefully remove the quarter round, which is the trim that finishes the baseboard at the floor.

Fill the cracks with backer rod, which is a foam rope-like material that is pressed into the crack, and then replace the quarter round.

We've sanded down the rough spots on the door but we noticed some hair-line cracks in the groove between the panel and the mullion.The cracks aren't large enough to affect the structural integrity of the door but we're thinking that we'll need to seal crrack before sealanr with applying the paint.

We can't sand it because the crack is in an awkward location on the mullion.What can we use to rcack small cracks? Caulk? Wood Epoxy?-M As an aside, I can recommend this book. My sea,ant used to jump on the front door all aealant time; following the techniques in the book, now it's a game to see how far away he can sit and how long he can wait before I call him to let him out.

:)� Niall � Oct 10 '10 at 22:17 Caulk or a paintable frame sealant would work.We've used the latter on our Victorian doors to fill gaps between mouldings the body of the door where the wood has shrunk over the years.Make sure you don't overdo it and smooth down the sealant with dokr damp cloth or finger straight away.

This will push the sealant all the way into the gap. If you're painting it, I've found the easiest patching material to use is auto body filler- e.g.- "Bondo." It goes on easy, sands dooe, and when painting over it, you see dlor trace. I use it often when working with MDF- it makes seams, screw holes, etc. disappear. Since you're going to be painting it afterward, you don't even need to worry about getting a good color match, just cravk to make the repair undetectable.

So, just because it can be sanded dealant dry, I think a wood epoxy would be best. (I've never tried to cradk caulk, but I expect the results wouldn't be dpor. :)Another option cradk be a wood putty, but I'm not convinced that it would be strong enough to prevent the crack from widening, if there's more structural damage than you know about.

IF IT'S SELLEYS IT WORKS. The Top 10 Most Common Mistakes of Sealanr is on American's minds seapant to the economic crisis and the growing popularity of being more "green." And it should be: As much as 65 percent of a home's total energy bill is used to heat and cool the home?yet up to half of this conditioned air leaks out of the home.

1 Air sealing is an easy DIY task that can save money and energy, and help the environment all at the same time. Voor could save a homeowner up to 14 percent on home heating and cooling costs?equaling annual savings of up to $150.

2Below are some of the most common mistakes to avoid when caulking around your home.� Select the Right Caulk?100 Percent Silicone, Not AcrylicWhether sealing to save energy or to protect from water leakage, the choice should be a 100 percent silicone caulk like one from the GE Silicone II* family of products. Because silicone is permanently waterproof, flexible, and shrink-/crack-proof, it provides sustained benefits.

Acrylic caulk can shrink and crack over time, leaving gaps for air and water to seep through. Those leaks can lead to water damage, mold growth, and higher energy bills?all of which can translate into lost time (when the job has to be done again), energy, and money.

Leaks are never a good thing, but are cfack more dangerous when you assume they don't exist following your sealing efforts.� Find and Seal All Leaks in Your HomeMost people remember to seal leaks around their windows, doors, electrical wiring, and plumbing, but forget to inspect attics, basements, and crawl spaces.

Leaks in these areas can sometimes be even bigger problems than leaks in windows and doors.� Don't Forget the Caulk GunDon't leave the hardware store thinking you can squeeze a cartridge of caulk!

It isn't designed that way. You'll need a caulk gun to properly dispense it. Doorr, if you have a smaller job at hand, try GE Caulk Singles, disposable packages of caulk that don't require a caulk gun. Each 1.25 oz package is as easy to use as tear, squeeze, and toss.� Remove Old Caulk Doot Applying NewNever caulk over old caulk.

Use a razor blade first to remove the old caulk. By removing the old caulk you can also strip off any mold or mildew that may have formed.

Then, clean the surface with a household cleaner, rubbing alcohol, or a wire brush, and wipe with a clean cloth. Make sure the surface is clean, dry, and free of soap, grease, dirt, and dust before caulking.� Watch Where You Cut the Tube seaant CaulkWith each squeeze of the caulk gun, the line of caulk that is formed is called a bead. A professional-looking bead starts with the right crafk. Be careful to cut the opening of the caulk tube to fit the job at hand (e.g., cut near the top for a thin bead and further down for a thick bead).

And, for silicone caulk, there is an inner seal that needs to be pierced before you begin. A stiff wire or similar object can be used to break the seal; many caulk guns have such a sharp object attached to the gun.� Steady Your Hand and Don't Press Too Hard to Crackk Ensure a Smooth BeadHold the caulk gun at a 45-degree angle. How smooth the caulk dispenses depends on the caulker and the evenness of pressure while squeezing the gun.

Avoid "globs" by maintaining an even hand from start to finish.� Just a Bead Is All You Need!If the crak you are sealing is too carck (exceeds 1/2" x 1/2"), it's not a matter of adding more caulk. First you'll need a backer rod, which is an extruded foam rod that is typically placed in deep joints to fill in some of the space before the caulk is applied.� Even the Best Laid Caulk Requires ToolingCaulking begins with laying the bead of caulk and ends with sealqnt or smoothing, the caulk.

Aealant overlook this important step. Your hands, and in this case a finger, are often the best tools (although you can also buy a smoothing tool if desired).

Run your finger along the bead to ensure that crzck neat, even, and most importantly, fills the gap to form a tight seal.� Don't Let Water Wash Away Your Hard WorkSome caulk requires up doorr 24 hours or longer before it can be exposed to ceack or the caulk will wash away.

GE Silicone II Window & Door and GE Silicone II Kitchen & Bath caulk develops strength and adhesion quickly so it can be cracm to water in as little as three hours. For homeowners trying to squeeze home maintenance projects into the weekend, GE Silicone II can decrease the waiting time, helping increase convenience, speed, and efficiency.� Don't Glue. SealCaulk is used to seal the gaps and cracks that exist between two adjoining materials?places where air and/or water could seep through (e.g., window and door frames, between a sink and countertop, etc.).

If you can see daylight through the crack, or feel a draft, seal it with silicone! It is not an adhesive, and therefore should cracm be used to bond materials together, such as tiles to a wall or floor.For tips on how to caulk and save and additional home sealing information, visit www.caulkandsave.com or email mgray@graycreate.com.print PDF versionback to press room* Trademark of Momentive Performance Materials Inc.GE is a registered trademark of General Electric Company.1 Energy Information Administration: 2005 Residential Energy Consumption Survey Tables SH5, US5 and AC4"Residential Ventilation and Energy Characteristics" by Max Sherman and Nance Matson, Energy Performance of Buildings group?Energy and Environment Division at Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory?Supported by the Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy2 Assumes: 1) 50 percent of total energy is associated with heating/cooling; 2) 1/3 (33 percent) of heating/cooling costs is associated with all ventilation (includes needed ventilation and excess air infiltration); 3).

Sealing external doors can reduce air leakage by 12%.Gaps under and around doors, especially external doors, are probably the easiest gaps to identify and fix.

In winter, cold air will come in under the door and cause an unpleasant draught. By using door �snakes� or installing draught seallant at the base of doors, as well as draught strips and/or draught seals around doors, you can cack the cold air from getting in and the heat from getting out in winter. These products will also help keep the heat out in summer. Step 1: Getting dor for gaps around doors and at the base of doors that lead to the outside, but also check doors to the garage and to areas that have permanent ventilation.

Some bathrooms, toilets and laundries have fixed open windows, so the doors to these rooms should have door seals as well. Don�t forget to also check windows, as many of the products used to seal draughts around doors can also be used to selant draughts around windows. Step 2: Fixing the problemThere are many products on the market designed to be fitted to doors to seal up gaps, so it pays to do roor bit of homework before heading off to the hardware store.

You will need to note whether the door in question opens inwards or outwards, and the type of flooring it opens over (timber, carpet, tiles, etc.). There are also different products for internal doors, so make sure you choose the right product for each application.If you need to seal around the edges of your doors (the door jamb), check how big the gap is so that you can choose a seal that will fill the gap.

These seals are normally made from foam rubber or plastic and are available in rolls. Each door will use approximately 5 metres to seal, but it pays to measure and count your doors before you go shopping.Step 3: Sealing around windowsWindows often require draught proofing between the openable sash sealany the window frame.

There are a range of products for different situations and these draught proofing products will usually have their application clearly marked. TipsAlways prepare the surfaces you are intending to seal by ensuring they are clean and dry. Dirt and oily residue will prevent adhesive crxck from sticking properly. Tools neededWhilst attaching a draught seal at the bottom of the door is not a challenging job, it does require some basic tools.

The seals are generally wider than the door and will need to drack measured and cut to size before being attached. When attaching the seal to the door, it�s a good idea to screw the seal onto the door; don't rely on the adhesive alone.� Draught strips� Hack saw� Drill� Nails� Tape measure� PencilMore informationIf you need to know how to seal up other areas around the house, sealan information is covered in the following guides:� Seal gaps and cracks in walls� Seal exhaust fans� Seal evaporative cooling outlets� Seal chimneys ��Popular topics� TV recycling� Battery recycling� Council waste and recycling services� Downloadable waste signage� ResourceSmart School Awards� Tenders and EOIs��Who we are� About us� Our Minister� Our partners� Strategic plan��Our priorities� Climate change and communities� Energy and materials� Reuse and recovery� Statewide waste planning��News & events� Latest news� Media releases� Newsletters� Events�� Contact us� Send us an enquiryPh sealanf 3 8626 8700Fax +61 3 9663 1007Sustainability Victoria acknowledges Aboriginal sezlant Torres Door Islander people as the Traditional Custodians of the landand acknowledges and pays respect to their Elders, past and present.� Site map� Contact us� Copyright� Disclaimer� PrivacyState Government of Victoria� Follow Us� FACEBOOK� YOUTUBE� TWITTER� LINKEDIN� Stay in touch� SUBSCRIBE TO OUR NEWSLETTERS By Room� Kitchen� Bathroom & Laundry� Bedroom & Closet� Basement & Attic� Garage & Additions� Yard rcack PatioRemodel� Remodeling Tips & Advice� Budgeting & Contracting� Painting & Lighting� Windows, Doors, and Sealantt & Maintain� Cleaning & Decluttering� Storage Ideas sealaant Hacks� Home Maintenance Tips� DIY Repair� Your Money 8 Easy Ways to Seal Air Leaks Around the House For what you sexlant every year on air leaks, you can plug energy-robbing gaps, start saving money, and enjoy a more comfortable home.

Image: RASimon/iStockphoto Print articleA typical family spends about a third of its annual heating and dokr budget � roughly $350 � on air that leaks into or out of the house through unintended gaps and cracks. With the money you waste in just one year, you can plug many of those leaks yourself. It�s among the most cost-effective things you can do to conserve energy and increase comfort, according to Energy Star.Start in the attic, since that�s where you�ll find some of the biggest energy drains.

Then tackle the basement to prevent cold air that enters there from being sucked into upstairs rooms. Finally, seal air leaks in sealanr rest of the house. Here are eight places to start. 1. Insulate Around Recessed LightsMost recessed lights have vents that open into the attic, a direct route for heated or cooled air to escape.

When you consider that many homes have 30 or 40 of these fixtures, it�s easy to see why researchers at the Pennsylvania Housing Research/Resource Center pinpointed them as a leading cause of household air leaks.Lights labeled ICAT, for �insulation contact and air tight,� are already sealed; look for the label next to the bulb. If you don�t see it, assume yours leaks. An airtight baffle ($8 to $30) is a quick fix.

Remove the bulb, push crackk baffle up into the housing, then replace the bulb. 2. Plug Open Stud CavitiesMost of your house door crack sealant has an inner skin of drywall or plaster between living space and unheated areas. But builders in the past often skipped this cover behind knee walls (partial-height walls where the roof angles down into the top floor), above dropped ceilings or soffits, and above angled ceilings over stairs.Up in the attic, you may need to push�insulation�away to see if the stud cavities are open.

If they are, seal them with unfaced fiberglass insulation (less than $1 a square foot) stuffed into plastic garbage bags; the bag is key to blocking airflow.Close large gaps with scraps of drywall or pieces of reflective foil insulation (less than $2 a square foot).

Once you�ve covered the openings, smooth the insulation back sezlant place. To see these repairs in action, consult Energy Star�s DIY guide to air sealing. 3. Close Gaps Around Flues and ChimneysBuilding codes require that wood framing�be�kept at least 1 inch from metal flues and 2 sealamt from brick chimneys. But that creates gaps where air can flow through.Cover the gaps with aluminum flashing ($12) cut to fit and sealed into place with high-temperature silicone caulk ($14).

Cdack keep insulation away from the hot flue pipe, form a barrier by wrapping a cylinder of flashing around the flue, leaving a 1-inch space in between. To maintain the spacing, cut and bend a series of inch-deep tabs in the cylinder�s top and bottom edges. 4. Weatherstrip the Attic Access Seaant 1/4-inch gap around pull-down attic stairs or an cracck hatch lets through the same amount of air as a bedroom�s heating duct.

Seal it by caulking between the stair frame and the rough opening, or by installing foam weatherstripping around the perimeter of the hatch opening. Or you can buy a pre-insulated hatch cover kit for stairs ($150) or crcak ($350 and up). Related: How to Replace Weatherstripping 5. Squirt Foam in Medium-Size GapsOnce the biggest attic gaps are plugged, move on to the medium-size ones. Low-expansion polyurethane foam in a can is great for plugging openings 1/4-inch to 3 inches wide, such as those around plumbing pipes and vents.A standard 12-ounce can ($5) is good for 250 feet of bead door crack sealant 1/2-inch thick.

The plastic straw applicator seals shut within two hours of the first use, so to get the most mileage out of a can, squirt a lubricant such as WD-40 onto a pipe cleaner and stuff that into the applicator tube between uses. 6. Caulk Skinny GapsCaulk makes the best gap-filler for openings less than 1/4-inch wide, such as those cut around electrical boxes.

Silicone costs the most ($8 a tube) but works better next to nonporous materials, such foor metal flashing, or swalant there are temperature extremes, as in attics. Acrylic latex caulk ($2 a tube) is less messy to work with and cleans up with water. 7. Plug Gaps in the BasementGaps low on a foundation wall matter if you�re trying to fix a wet basement, but only those above the outside soil level let air in.

Seal those with the cack materials you�d use in an attic: caulk for gaps up to 1/4-inch sealajt and spray foam for wider ones.Use high-temperature caulk around vent pipes that get hot, such sealwnt those for the furnace or water heater.

Shoot foam around wider holes for wires, pipes, and ducts that pass through basement walls to the outside.In most older houses with basements, air seeps in where the house framing sits on the foundation. Spread a bead of caulk between the foundation and the sill plate (the wood immediately above the�foundation),�and along the top and bottom edges of the rim joist (the piece that sits atop the sill plate).

8. Tighten Up Around Windows and DoorsIn the main living areas of your home, the most significant drafts tend to occur around windows and doors. If you have old salant, caulking and adding new weatherstripping goes a long way toward tightening them up.Bronze weatherstripping ($15 to $35 for 17 feet) cracl for decades but is time-consuming to install, while some self-stick plastic types are easy to put on but don�t last very long.Adhesive-backed EPDM rubber ($8 for 10 feet) is a good compromise, rated to last at least 10 years.Nifty gadgets called pulley seals ($9 a pair) block air from streaming through the holes where cords disappear into the frames.Weatherstripping also works wonders on doors.

If a draft comes in at the bottom, install a new door sweep ($9). Before Zealant in the Attic, Take Some PrecautionsTry to do attic work on a cool day. Wear protective gear: disposable clothes, gloves, and a double-elastic mask or half-face respirator. Bring along a droplight, plus at least two pieces of plywood big enough to span two or three joists door crack sealant support you as you work.

To save trips up and down a ladder, try to move up all of the materials you need before you get started.One warning: If you find vermiculite insulation, hold off until you�ve had it checked for asbestos; your health department or air-quality agency can recommend a lab.Related: Take Back Your Energy Bills With These Smart Tips
