Winter Prep for Your Replacement Windows and Doors in Southern Pines, NC From Caulking to Installing Storm Doors

The cold of winter is near once again in Southern Pines, and there are a couple things that you could prep 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 cozy as we put up with winter for a short while longer. 

  • Re-caulk your windows and doors. Caulking can help lower the amount of drafts in your home and it can help shield you from bugs or other unpredictable weather that heads to Southern Pines. 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. Inspect the weather stripping around your windows and doors, check for any worn out or torn pieces, swapping out weather stripping where needed. Any pieces that are worn out or torn could allow cold air to creep in your home and cause the heating and cooling system to work more than it should] because of that lost warm air.

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

  • Install storm doors. Adding storm doors on your home can bring another barrier to your home and can help with protection from nasty weather and help lower air and moisture leaks.

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