Winter Prep for Your Replacement Windows and Doors in Baton Rouge, Louisiana – From Caulking to Installing Storm Doors

Published on

The dead of winter is upon us once again in Baton Rouge, and there are a few things that you could check on 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 warm 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 may help protect you from bugs or other unpredictable weather that goes through Baton Rouge. Walk around your home and be sure there aren’t any gaps or holes, and if there are, get them filled.

  • Look at your weather stripping. Inspect 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 parts that are worn out or torn can 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 direct? The truth is that older windows and windows with single-pane glass normally aren’t as energy efficient as newer windows. Like almost all other goods that have been around for decades, advancements in technology have allowed for better energy performance. Replacement windows and replacement doors are no different, so why not start saving money on your energy costs now?

  • Add storm doors. Adding storm doors on your home can bring 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 variety of other things that will factor in to your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are four to start you on the right track.
