Preparing for Winter Weather with Replacement Doors and Windows in Rochester, Minnesota

Colder months in Rochester can bring about weather that can make our replacement doors and windows work a lot more often than they should have to. That’s why we’ve put together a couple tips that you can take care of now to help ready your home for the rest of the year. 

  • Get a new front door: Drafty doors can mean an uptick in your monthly costs and a less than comfortable home. Replacement doors may help you increase your energy efficiency and help safeguard your home from the weather in Rochester.

  • Do an energy audit: An energy audit may appear to be a bit daunting, but it’s as simple as walking around your home and checking that all of your doors and windows are working correctly. Check the weather stripping and caulking, as leaky doors and windows can mean a decrease in your home’s energy efficiency and a boost in your monthly energy costs.

  • Exchange old windows: Whether it’s because they’re just old or if it’s because they’re only made up of single-pane glass, you could save more than you’d think by switching out your old windows out with newer, more efficient windows. Replacement windows that feature double-pane or triple-pane glass have better overall efficiency and can help you save throughout the year.

Winter weather in Rochester can vary rapidly, which is why it’s important to be ready and have your home prepped for anything that gets tossed your way. Replacement doors and windows can play an important role in helping to keep your homes comfortable and efficient.
