I'm renting a duplex that has its own steel entry door. A friend

Customer Question

I'm renting a duplex that has its own steel entry door. A friend told me that the door is too small for the doorway, and true enough, I can see the gaps through the sides, top, and bottom of the door. I purchased and installed weatherstripping on the sides and top, but had problems for the bottom one. There's an existing metal strip at the bottom of the doorway, but there is still a 1 cm gap. I installed a door sweep (door has kerfs), but the door won't close with it. What else can I do?
