Preparing for Winter Weather with Replacement Doors and Windows in South Portland, ME

Colder months in South Portland can bring about conditions that can make our replacement doors and windows work a lot more often than they should have to. That’s why we’ve put together a few checks that you can take care of now to help prepare your home for the rest of the season. 

  • Update your front door: Drafty doors can mean an uptick in your monthly expenses and a less than comfortable home. Replacement doors can help you improve your energy efficiency and help protect your home from the weather in South Portland.

  • Complete an energy audit: An energy audit may appear to be a bit daunting, but it’s as basic as walking around your home and making certain that all of your doors and windows are working appropriately. Look at the the weather stripping and caulking, as leaky doors and windows can mean a reduction in your home’s energy efficiency and a boost in your monthly energy expenses.

  • Swap out old windows: Whether it’s because they’re merely old or if it’s because they’re only made up of single-pane glass, you might save more than you’d think by changing out your old windows out with newer, more efficient windows. Replacement windows that have double-pane or triple-pane glass have better overall efficiency and can help you save for years to come.

Colder weather in South Portland can change quickly, which is why it’s important to be prepared and have your home prepped for anything that gets sent your way. Replacement doors and windows can play an important role in helping to keep your homes comfortable and efficient.
