• There are many reasons why you might also want to improve your home. For instance, you might want to get your home ready for a particular season. For instance, fall can be an interesting season that you will enjoy more if your home is well prepared. One of the preparations you can make is to make sure your windows are ready. Take a look at how you can get your windows ready for fall.

    Sealing and Caulking

    One of the things you will want to do is to make sure you are ready for the colder air. Caulking sunroom windows and every other window in your house will help you seal out the drafts. Fortunately, this is a relatively simple and cheap task. When caulking, you must apply a thin strip of waterproof sealant around the window frames. You should also look for cracks around your windows and seal them with caulk as well. It’s best to ensure that moisture stays out of your home as it might end up affecting your furniture. When done properly, caulk will blend with your windows, and you won’t even notice it.

    Rubber Sealing

    If you don’t want caulk, you can also go for rubber weather sealing. This can be done on any window in your house, including sunroom windows. With rubber sealing, you will apply a self-sticking rubber on one side of the window and deal it with adhesive. You can select the most problematic areas and focus on those. Just like caulking, this will also close the gaps and hold off the draft.

    Window Insulation

    Even after sealing off the draft, you will still lose a lot of heat if your windows are not sealed. This is true, especially if you have single-pane windows. Multipaned windows retain a lot of heat, but they are rather expensive to have in your home. The best way to ensure that heat is not lost via your windows is to seal them with insulation film. This is a plastic film that you apply to your windows using double-sided tape. It creates a barrier between the inside of your home and the windows, and this helps to retain heat in your home.

    If you’re part of the homeowners that will spend between $5,000 and $10,000 making improvements to your home, you may even consider replacing your windows. However, these small fixes can help ensure that your regular or sunroom windows are ready for fall and start preparing for the colder months of the year.
