Part Eight - Honey, Get My Gun!

Ok, calm down. Of course I am talking about my caulk gun! Geez....

Anywho, if the gaps between siding and window or door frames are bigger than the width of a nickel, you need to reapply exterior caulk. (Check the joints in window and door frames, too.) Silicone caulk is best for exterior use because it won’t shrink and it’s impervious to the elements.

Try GE's Silicone II Window and Door product, which is “rain ready” in three hours. Check window-glazing putty, too (which seals glass into the window frame). Add weatherstripping as needed around doors, making sure you cannot see any daylight from inside your home.

Of course, if you are not up to the task, I happen to know someone who is. Call today, and John Welch Enterprise, Inc. will check your windows and doors, and make sure you are well insulated from the outdoor elements. Once again, this is an energy saver, which in turn is a MONEY saver. Who doesn't want more money in their pockets this time of year? I know I do!

So, stay warm. And if you feel a draft, you know what to do....
