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

Published on

The cold of winter is near once again in Memphis, 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 cozy as we go back and forth with winter for a short while longer. 

  • Re-caulk your windows and doors. Caulking can help lower the amount of drafts in your home and it might help protect you from bugs or other unpredictable weather that goes through Memphis. Walk around your home and be sure there aren’t any gaps or holes, and if there are, get them handled.

  • 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 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 often] because of that lost warm air.

  • Get replacement windows. Too straightforward? The truth is that older windows and windows with single-pane glass normally aren’t as energy efficient as newer windows. Like many other things that have been around for decades, 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 expenses now?

  • Install storm doors. Getting storm doors on your home can add 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 things that will factor in to your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are a few to keep you on the right track.
