    Living in an older apartment, newly renovated, but seems the flooring in the entryway near front door is uneven. There is a wooden threshold and a weather strip attached to the door itself. Any ideas of how to fix the small gap without too much work since it’s an apartment and I am renting. Pictures attached.

    There is a clear plastic piece made in a U shape that will slide over the bottom of the door and can be angled to fit the gap. No gluing or screwing needed.

    No, but Walmart carries it with door seals.

    I'd rip a couple pieces of 2x4 to put under the threshold, then screw it back down.
