Winter Prep for Your Replacement Windows and Doors in Natick, MA From Caulking to Installing Storm Doors

The dead of winter is near once again in Natick, and there are a couple things that you could check on your replacement windows and doors to help you stay comfy during 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 comfortable as we deal with winter for a bit longer. 

  • Re-caulk your windows and doors. Caulking can help decrease the amount of drafts in your home and it can help protect you from bugs or other unpredictable weather that comes through Natick. Walk around your home and make sure there aren’t any gaps or holes, and if there are, get them filled.

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

  • Purchase replacement windows. Too direct? The truth is that older windows and windows with single-pane glass typically aren’t as energy efficient as newer windows. Like most other products that have been around for decades, improvements in technology have permitted better energy performance. Replacement windows and replacement doors are no different, so why not start saving money on your energy expenses now?

  • Install storm doors. Installing storm doors on your home can bring another level of defense for your home and can help with protection from bad weather and help lower air and moisture leaks.

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