Storm Door Sweep Gap

Hello, everyone!

Below are a picture of my storm door and the gap beneath it. There is a sweep attached, but you'll notice the light coming through, beneath the sweep. This is allowing cold air and insects to enter.

Is there anything I can do to fix this? Any types of special sweeps which account for a slight pitch like this, for instance?

Re: Storm Door Sweep Gap

I can't see clearly if your sweep is adjustable.
There are those that have an elongated hole ,where the mounting screws go, that allow the sweep to be adjusted up or down.
Otherwise, if your sweep is not adjustable I would remove the screws and simply remount the sweep to correct the gap.
