Like the sweeps and weather stripping that keep drafts from coming in around your front door, sweeps for shower doors break down with age and use – losing flexibility and effectiveness over time. General rule-of-thumb is to replace your shower door sweeps every 1-2 years, but make a point of examining them when you clean your bathroom. If a sweep is torn, cracked, brittle or discolored, or if your shower is noticeably leaking around one of the seals, it’s time to replace it. Shower door sweep replacement is a fairly easy “do it yourself” project, as long as you are careful to buy the right replacement parts and measure carefully.
