Quote from Article entitled Some Types of Weather Stripping Doors :
Tension-seal weather stripping is one of weather stripping doorsa you can install to your door. It is best used for the inside top and sides of the room. There are two varieties of tension-seal stripping, self-stick plastic vinyl or a springy bronze strip. This is a good weather stripping type because it is durable and invisible. However, it is difficult to install because the corners need to remain snug. If you want the one that is easy to install, felt weather stripping is a good option. It can be glued, stapled or tackled into place. It is also inexpensive as well as easy to install. You can use it for the inside of the door jamb to make the door press against the weather stripping. However, it is low durability and less effective for preventing airflow. So, you can consider the disadvantages as well. For the use of the bottom of the door, reinforced-foam weather stripping is a nice choice. It is visible and must be cut; nailed and painted to match the area when it is installed, but it is effective to protect your door against wind. Other effective weather stripping is tubular rubber and vinyl weather stripping. They need to be tacked or stapled around the door frame, but they provide an effective barrier. However, the only disadvantage is that the tubular weather stripping with self-stick versions is difficult to install effectively.
