Prepare for Winter with Replacement Windows and Doors

Preparing for Winter Weather with Replacement Doors and Windows in Grand Rapids, MI

Published on

Colder months in Grand Rapids can bring about weather that can make our replacement doors and windows work a lot more often than they should have to. That’s why we’ve gathered a few tips that you can take care of now to help prep your home for the rest of the season. 

  • Update your front door: Drafty doors can mean higher costs on your monthly costs and a less than comfortable home. Replacement doors may help you increase your energy efficiency and help protect your home from the weather in Grand Rapids.

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

  • Exchange old windows: Whether it’s because they’re just old or if it’s because they’re only made up of single-pane glass, you could save more than you’d think by swapping your old windows out with newer, more efficient windows. Replacement windows that feature double-pane or triple-pane glass have better overall efficiency and can help you save throughout the year.

Winter weather in Grand Rapids can change quickly, which is why it’s important to be prepared and have your home prepped for anything that gets tossed your way. Replacement doors and windows can play a large role in helping to keep your homes comfortable and efficient.
