Screens are an expensive and important factor in window maintenance. While necessary in the warmer months, there are safer in storage during the winter months. As snow and ice piles against windows, it can lead to sagging or torn screens.
Check window caulking
Verify the caulking or sealant around your windows and replace if needed. Caulking and sealant help ensure your home stays warm in the colder weather and lowers your heating bills.
Invest in insulated glass
To further reduce heating bills and keep your home toasty this winter, consider upgrading to insulated glass units. Insulated windows also help to prevent condensation and a warm edge spacer that further reduces heat and air transfer.
