How to Install Bubble Seal Weatherstripping

Updated February 21, 2017

Bubble seal weather stripping is used to seal the edges of your home's windows. Unlike traditional peel and stick weather stripping, bubble seal has a fabricated edge that seats in a pre-existing groove around the perimeter of the window. Sealing your windows with weather stripping can save you money on your electricity bill due to the strips' ability to keep the ambient heat in your home from escaping through cracks around unsealed windows.

Use a flat head screwdriver to pry out any old weather stripping material from the weather stripping groove around the perimeter of the window.

Measure the top, bottom and sides of the window you would like to install the bubble seal weather stripping in.

Cut lengths of bubble seal to match the measurements of your window.

Slide the fabricated edge of the bubble seal into the weather stripping groove around the perimeter of the window. Do this for all four sides of the window to completely seal it.
