Winter Prep for your Replacement Windows and Doors

Winter Prep for Your Replacement Windows and Doors in Newport, Rhode Island – From Caulking to Installing Storm Doors

Published on

The dead of winter is near once again in Newport, and there are a handful of things that you could address with 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 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 unpredictable weather that comes through Newport. 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. Check the weather stripping around your windows and doors, looking for any worn out or torn pieces, getting rid of old weather stripping where needed. Any pieces that are worn out or torn may 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.

  • Get replacement windows. Too straightforward? The truth is that older windows and windows with single-pane glass usually aren’t as energy efficient as newer windows. Like most other goods that have been around for a while, developments in technology have enabled increased energy performance. Replacement windows and replacement doors are no different, so why not start saving money on your energy bills now?

  • Get storm doors. Adding storm doors on your home can bring 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 number of other variables that will impact your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are a few to keep you on the right track.
