Winter Prep for your Replacement Windows and Doors

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

Published on

The dead of winter is upon us once again in Wilmington, and there are a few things that you could check on your replacement windows and doors to help you ride out the long winter. Whether it’s caulking your windows or doors or adding a storm door, here are a couple tips to help keep your home warm as we put up 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 might help shield you from bugs or other crazy weather that heads to Wilmington. Walk around your home and ensure there aren’t any gaps or holes, and if there are, get them taken care of.

  • Check 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 sneak in your home and cause the heating and cooling system to work harder] because of that lost warm air.

  • Buy replacement windows. Too upfront? The truth is that older windows and windows with single-pane glass typically aren’t as energy efficient as newer windows. Like almost all other products that have been around for a while, 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 bills now?

  • Get 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 decrease air and moisture leaks.

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