Winter Prep for Your Replacement Windows and Doors in St. Paul, MN – From Caulking to Installing Storm Doors

Published on

The dead of winter is near once again in St. Paul, and there are a few things that you could address with 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 deal 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 can help guard you from bugs or other crazy weather that heads to St. Paul. 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. Look at the weather stripping around your windows and doors, keep an eye out for any worn out or torn pieces, replacing weather stripping where needed. Any parts 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 often] because of that lost warm air.

  • Purchase replacement windows. Too straightforward? The truth is that older windows and windows with single-pane glass typically aren’t as energy efficient as newer windows. Like almost all other products that have been around for a while, improvements 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 add another level of defense for your home and can help with protection from severe weather and help lower air and moisture leaks.

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