Winter Prep for your Replacement Windows and Doors

Winter Prep for Your Replacement Windows and Doors in Rochester, Minnesota – From Caulking to Installing Storm Doors

Published on

The cold of winter is upon us once again in Rochester, 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 couple tips to help keep your home cozy 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 guard you from bugs or other unpredictable weather that heads to Rochester. Walk around your home and make sure there aren’t any gaps or holes, and if there are, get them handled.

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

  • Get replacement windows. Too direct? The truth is that older windows and windows with single-pane glass usually aren’t as energy efficient as newer windows. Like most other products 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 expenses now?

  • Add storm doors. Installing storm doors on your home can add another barrier to 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 things that will impact your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are a few to start you on the right track.
