Winter Prep for your Replacement Windows and Doors

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

Published on

The middle of winter is almost here once again in Denver, and there are a handful of things that you could prep 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 handful of tips to help keep your home warm as we put up with winter for a little 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 unexpected weather that comes through Denver. Walk around your home and be sure there aren’t any gaps or holes, and if there are, get them filled.

  • 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 pieces 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 than it should] because of that lost warm air.

  • Purchase replacement windows. Too upfront? The truth is that older windows and windows with single-pane glass typically aren’t as energy efficient as newer windows. Like many other goods that have been around for a bit, developments in technology have permitted better energy performance. Replacement windows and replacement doors are no different, so why not start saving money on your energy bills now?

  • Get 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 variables that will impact your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are four to keep you on the right track.
