Winter Prep for your Replacement Windows and Doors

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

Published on

The middle of winter is near once again in Roanoke, and there are a couple 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 cozy as we deal with winter for a short while longer. 

  • Re-caulk your windows and doors. Caulking can help reduce the amount of drafts in your home and it might help shield you from bugs or other unpredictable weather that comes through Roanoke. Walk around your home and ensure there aren’t any gaps or holes, and if there are, get them handled.

  • Inspect your weather stripping. Look at the weather stripping around your windows and doors, check for any worn out or torn pieces, replacing weather stripping where needed. Any parts that are worn out or torn may allow cold air to creep in your home and cause the heating and cooling system to work more often] because of that lost warm air.

  • Buy 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 many other goods that have been around for decades, improvements in technology have allowed for improved energy performance. Replacement windows and replacement doors are no different, so why not start saving money on your energy costs now?

  • Add storm doors. Adding storm doors on your home can bring another barrier to your home and can help with protection from severe weather and help decrease air and moisture leaks.

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