WHO KNEW? WEATHER-STRIPPING IS THE SOLUTION FOR A MYRIAD OF PROBLEMS!

Many people reach for weather-stripping when outdoor temperatures begin to dip and chilly drafts start to flow into your home.  This common product is highly effective at sealing gaps around doors and windows, and once installed you should feel a noticeable difference in your comfort level by having a consistent indoor temperature to enjoy.  It also helps with moisture control by keeping rain and moisture out and protecting your home from potential water damage.  An often surprising reward for your home improvement efforts will be that weather-stripping reduces the amount of heating or cooling needed which leads to lower energy bills.  Once you have sealed those cracks and gaps, you may also notice a resulting reduction in noise, offering you a quieter indoor environment.  And if it’s peace you’re looking for, weather-stripping closes those spaces where pests of many sizes can gain entry, so that mouse invasion you were having may blissfully disappear!
