Get Your Windows Ready for Colder Weather
Have you noticed a draft coming from your old windows? It’s a good time to double-check your windows and ensure they’re ready for the fall and winter weather.
As the outside temperatures drop, you’re more likely to notice drafty windows. By replacing the weatherstripping or caulking small cracks and gaps, you’ll provide your home with better insulation and energy efficiency.
Weatherstripping can deteriorate over time, so it’s important to inspect it periodically. A good way to test its effectiveness is by closing your window on a slip of paper. If the paper slides easily, the weatherstripping isn’t sealing properly.
If you’ve replaced the weatherstripping and filled in gaps with suitable caulk and you’re still noticing a draft, it may be time to get your windows replaced. At Renewal by Andersen, we offer durable, energy-efficient replacement windows in a wide range of colors and styles that will improve the comfort and value of your home.
