Quick Tip: Measure twice, cut once

You can rub out a pencil mark but you can’t undo a cut from your saw. Whether you are working with timber, tiles, glass or any other building material, you should always double check your measurements before you cut.

Step by Step Instructions

1 Measure and cut weather strip to seal the window
2 Use weather strip to seal the window
  • Step 1. Measure and cut weather strip to seal the window

    Open your window and measure the dimensions of the inside of your frame where the window sits when it is closed. There are three different types of weather strip – brush, foam and rubber. Choose the weather strip that works for your window and cut it to size.
  • Step 2. Use weather strip to seal the window

    Peel the adhesive backing off the pieces of weather strip and stick them into position on the frame of your window. Before you start, it is a good idea to clean the frame down with a damp cloth to remove any dirt and dust to help the weather strip stick.
