Closing the gap on a Larson storm door

A contractor from North Carolina says:
I have a customer with a Larson storm door who is trying to close the gap between the bottom of the door and the threshold. The bottom of the door is 3/4" from the threshold. The distance from the bottom of the rubber sweep to the threshold is about 1/4". Is there any other solution for closing this gap? This is a new door.

Your door opening might be a little taller than normal. In such a situation, I usually pack the top of the storm door down with a piece of wood trim. You might also install a surface mounted door sweep like the 40-003 and see if that will close up the gap at the bottom.
