Forum Title: Masonite door question
Hi, I have steel Masonite smooth finish door leading from the basement to the outside. Along the entire perimeter of the door, on the sides, there is a groove. Pictures attached. I wonder if I can attach extra weather stripping to the door itself. Is that what this groove is for? If yes, what type of weather stripping goes in it? There are areas where the jamb weather stripping is not enough, and I would like to know if I can add to it for better insulation? Thanks.

Welcome to the forums! What company does the management company say manufactured it? It will give us a starting point.

No. I think the groove you are referring to is just the groove that the steel door skin wraps around. If your weatherstrip isn't sufficient, then its likely the door isn't plumb... or lacks corner pads... or needs a threshold adjustment or the strike plate could be adjusted so the door shuts tighter. What is your issue specifically?

Thanks. Makes sense. I seem to be unable to attach anything from work PC (likely their security). But what you said makes sense. Thanks again.
