Winter Prep for Your Replacement Windows and Doors in North Carolina, and Roanoke, Virginia – From Caulking to Installing Storm Doors

Published on

The dead of winter is upon us once again in North Carolina, and there are a few things that you could prep on your replacement windows and doors to help you take on the long winter. Whether it’s caulking your windows or doors or adding a storm door, here are a handful of tips to help keep your home warm as we deal with winter for a bit longer. 

  • Re-caulk your windows and doors. Caulking can help lower the amount of drafts in your home and it might help shield you from bugs or other unpredictable weather that heads to North Carolina. Walk around your home and make sure there aren’t any gaps or holes, and if there are, get them handled.

  • Look at your weather stripping. Check the weather stripping around your windows and doors, keep an eye out for any worn out or torn pieces, replacing weather stripping where needed. Any sections that are worn out or torn could allow cold air to get in your home and cause the heating and cooling system to work harder] because of that lost warm air.

  • Get replacement windows. Too straightforward? The truth is that older windows and windows with single-pane glass normally aren’t as energy efficient as newer windows. Like most other goods that have been around for a while, developments in technology have enabled improved energy performance. Replacement windows and replacement doors are no different, so why not start saving money on your energy costs now?

  • Install storm doors. Getting storm doors on your home can mean you have another safeguard for your home and can help with protection from nasty weather and help decrease air and moisture leaks.

Of course, there are a number of other variables that will play in to your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are a couple to start you on the right track.
