Preparing your windows and doors for winter

As winter is now well and truly upon us, many Yorkshire homeowners are looking to protect their property from adverse weather. Here at Huddersfield based Clear View, we have been providing specialist aluminium windows and doors to our customers for over ten years and know how properly installed and maintained fittings can help keep your home protected all year round, as well as saving money on those increasing energy bills. That’s why we have come up with a handy guide to preparing your windows and doors for winter.

Clear window sills

Miscellaneous debris gathered throughout the year such as dirt, grit or leaves can get caught in your windowsills and other moving parts. By ensuring these are kept clean you will create a tighter seal on your windows and doors, enhancing their performance.

Check weather stripping

Weather stripping around windows and doors can become worn or loose over time. Ineffective weather stripping can let the cold air in during winter so always make sure to reattach or replace.

Reapply sealant

Heavy weather can cause breaks in caulk or sealant around windows and doors, resealing these areas can reduce potential drafts and leaks.

Replace your windows and doors

If your doors and windows are older or single paned you may consider replacing them with a newer, more energy efficient design that will keep heat in and save you money year round. An aluminium door, as well as offering high levels of thermal insulation, are made from a non-corrosive, low maintenance material that can withstand the best of what the Great British weather can throw at it!

If you are looking to replace your windows and doors with modern aluminium designs that can protect your home this winter, then do not hesitate to get in touch with the team at Clear View on 0800 1357167.
