Preparing Your Home’s Windows and Doors for Extreme Cold Weather

As the winter season approaches, it’s essential to ensure that your home is ready to withstand the harsh cold weather. Diligent Exterior Remodeling offers a range of products and services designed to optimize your home’s warmth and energy efficiency during these colder months.

Inspect and Repair Existing Windows and Doors

Start by inspecting your existing windows and doors for any damage. Cracks or gaps can lead to significant heat loss, which is especially problematic in cold weather. Diligent Exterior Remodeling can assist with expert repairs or replacements if necessary.

Upgrade to Energy-Efficient Windows

Consider upgrading to energy-efficient windows. Diligent Exterior Remodeling offers ProVia windows, known for their energy efficiency that matches specific weather conditions. These windows feature a vinyl compound, efficient frame design, and a specialized glass system combining low-E and clear glass with insulating gases like argon or krypton.

Choose Durable, High-Performance Windows

For windows that offer both durability and style, Diligent Exterior Remodeling recommends Infinity from Marvin fiberglass windows. These windows are designed to provide strong performance and can be a stylish addition to any home.

Apply Weatherstripping and Caulking

To further improve insulation, apply weatherstripping and caulking around windows and doors. This step is crucial for sealing air leaks and can be a cost-effective way to enhance your home’s warmth.

Install Quality Storm Windows and Doors

For areas prone to extreme cold, installing storm windows and doors can add an additional layer of insulation. Diligent Exterior Remodeling can advise on the best options to suit your home’s needs.

Use Window Insulation Kits

Window insulation kits are a temporary but effective solution for improving the energy efficiency of your windows, especially for older models.

Opt for Thermal Curtains and Drapes

Adding thermal curtains or drapes can provide an extra layer of insulation, helping to retain heat during the winter months.
