Winter Prep for Your Replacement Windows and Doors in Cape Cod, Massachusetts – From Caulking to Installing Storm Doors

Published on

The middle of winter is near once again in Cape Cod, 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 few tips to help keep your home warm as we go back and forth 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 guard you from bugs or other crazy weather that comes through Cape Cod. Walk around your home and ensure there aren’t any gaps or holes, and if there are, get them filled.

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

  • Buy replacement windows. Too direct? 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 a bit, advancements in technology have enabled improved energy performance. Replacement windows and replacement doors are no different, so why not start saving money on your energy bills now?

  • Add storm doors. Installing storm doors on your home can add another barrier to your home and can help with protection from severe weather and help reduce air and moisture leaks.

Of course, there are a variety of other variables that will impact your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are a few to get you on the right track.
