Prepare your home for winter: weatherstripping

Spaces around windows and doors can be big culprits of drafty, cold air. That’s where weatherstripping comes in. It fills the gaps and creates a tighter seal. Rolls start at just a few dollars at most home improvement and hardware stores and are easy to install.

Installation tips 

  • Look for gaps and feel for drafts around windows and doors.
  • Clean areas where self-adhesive weatherstripping will be installed.
  • Measure space, then measure weatherstripping and cut to length.
  • Apply weatherstripping along edge.
Once you close the window or door, you should have a nice, tight seal.
