Caulking an exterior door helps keep out the weather—both air infiltration that leads to chills and higher energy bills, and water that can lead to moisture damage. Caulking is a straightforward DIY repair, one that needs to be periodically updated through the years. If the caulk around your exterior doors is crumbling away or exhibits breaks or gaps, it could use refreshing.
