Winter Prep for your Replacement Windows and Doors

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

Published on

The cold of winter is almost here once again in Greensboro, and there are a handful of things that you could check 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 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 crazy weather that heads to Greensboro. Walk around your home and be sure there aren’t any gaps or holes, and if there are, get them handled.

  • Check your weather stripping. Check the weather stripping around your windows and doors, check for any worn out or torn pieces, swapping out weather stripping where needed. Any parts that are worn out or torn could allow cold air to get in your home and cause the heating and cooling system to work more than it should] because of that lost warm air.

  • Get 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 almost all other things that have been around for a bit, improvements in technology have permitted improved energy performance. Replacement windows and replacement doors are no different, so why not start saving money on your energy expenses now?

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

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