Door Threshold Problem

Any ideas on filling the gap between door and threshold? I replaced storm door but threshold is not deep enough to meet bottom of new door. I tried replacing threshold with a deeper one, but old one is too tough to get out. I want to close the gap on interior side of the door with some sort of sweep or weatherstrip extrusion. Gap is almost 1". Anybody know where I can buy something to help fix this?

I am assuming this is a metal door? Did the vertical rails of the frame provided with the new storm door go down further than the door? Most storm doors I have messed with, the bottom of the door is a 'U' channel, and can be moved up and down a surprising distance. It's worth a second look in daylight.
If the door <doesn't> have an adjustable bottom rail, take good measurements, and go to local metal supply house (not the big-box) and see if they have any channel that would be a tight slip-fit. A window company that does sunrooms and store fronts would be another place to try- they often need to field-fabricate fillers to make the prefab panels fit older buildings.

Did you ever find a solution? Just had a storm door installed and am having the same problem. ------------------------------------- snipped-for-privacy@gmail.com wrote:

Look closely at the new storm door. All the ones I have ever installed, there was a 'U' channel over the bottom rail that could be slid up and down to adjust the length of the door. Sometimes it wasn't very obvious. Not saying all doors have this feature, but the cheap ones I have dealt with all did. Storm door is not supposed to seal tightly at the bottom, to avoid moisture buildup, and to make the door easy to close. An inch is way too much, but you should be able to slide a piece of paper under it.

The gap isn't in the height between the threshold and the storm door, but the depth between the threshold and the storm door. It's like we need the threshold to be extended outwards another inch. ------------------------------------- aemeijers wrote:

re: "It's like we need the threshold to be extended outwards another inch.
From where I'm typing I can't see how your threshold is constructed/ installed, but perhaps you could rip a piece of wood and tack it to the front of the existing threshold (or riser below) the threshold to fill the gap.
How did this happen anyway? Did the old storm door fit correctly? If so why doesn't the new one?

A hunk of aluminum channel or even marble, would be a better bet. Even well-finished wood doesn't last worth a damn as the leading edge of an outside threshold. Long screws and/or construction adhesive to pin it into place. Make sure to not leave any dips or holes that collect water, or channel it under the existing threshold into the floor system. I've seen more than one rotted-out rim joist and sill plate under a front door from bad flashing and water-sealing.
