Looking for weatherstripping for French doors

Home Owner from Maryland

I'm looking to replace both the astragal weatherstripping and the door sweeps on both French doors. The previous owner didn't weatherstrip properly and/or hadn't replaced them. There's a large enough gap when the doors are closed that you can see sunlight coming through and lets bugs in.

In one photo, you can see the wood astragal with weatherstripping (One photo is a profile shot from the top of the door). I believe this weatherstripping needs to extend further down to close the gap because I don't see how the door sweep could extend any further without blocking the floor bolt. In the other close-up photo, I tried to get the door sweep profile.

Additionally, they had a storm door that trapped the sun's heat and melted the frame around the decorative window. Do you happen to sell these as well or know what I should be looking for?

Thank you!

Thank you for contacting us. For the weatherstripping on the bottom of your door, take a look at the 58-176, 40-001, and the 40-111 door sweeps. As for the astragal weather stripping, look at the 58-055, 58-056E, and the 58-173. Review the specifications and see which ones you think might work best. The 58-176 wraps around the bottom of the door and installs on the sides with screws. 

Please note that we offer samples of the 58-055, 58-056E, and 58-173 so let me know if you'd be interested in that! 

As for the "round top decorative plastic door lite", if you know the door manufacturer you should be able to contact them for a replacement. If not, check with a door supplier, a glass shop in your area, or even one of the home centers in your area. They might be able to supply the top door lite. Also, today's plastic door lites are made to be heat resistant to keep them from warping.
