Your To-Do List
- Conduct a pre-winter inspection. Before the temperatures drop, it’s important to perform a complete home inspection and address any problem areas before it’s too late. We recommend checking your siding for any warping. You should also inspect the caulking around your windows and doors for any deterioration, although it’s a good idea to replace the caulking if you haven’t done so in over a year regardless of condition.
- Replace window and door caulking. Even if you don’t notice any deterioration, it’s a good idea to replace the caulking around your windows and doors every year or so. If you haven’t replaced yours in over a year, be sure to do so before winter weather arrives!
- Replace your windows. If you’ve noticed any drafts coming from your windows or doors, you should definitely consider replacing them before winter. Faulty windows/doors in wintertime will cause your energy bills to spike. However, replacing your windows/doors right away can avoid the increase in costs and save you money in the long run.
