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

The middle of winter is upon us once again in Raleigh, and there are a handful of things that you could check 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 handful of 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 shield you from bugs or other unexpected weather that comes through Raleigh. Walk around your home and be sure there aren’t any gaps or holes, and if there are, get them taken care of.

  • Look at your weather stripping. Look at the weather stripping around your windows and doors, check for any worn out or torn pieces, swapping out weather stripping where needed. Any sections that are worn out or torn may 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.

  • Purchase 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 most other products that have been around for a bit, advancements in technology have permitted improved energy performance. Replacement windows and replacement doors are no different, so why not start saving money on your energy costs now?

  • Add storm doors. Getting storm doors on your home can mean you have another safeguard for your home and can help with protection from bad weather and help decrease air and moisture leaks.

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