Window & Door Seal

Fall is in the air – can you feel it? The mornings are crisp and cool enough to need a sweater, the leaves are starting to show hints of orange and yellow, and everywhere you look, store shelves are lined with Halloween costumes and fall décor. September is the perfect time to prepare your home for the chilly season ahead! If your home has been feeling a little drafty, let DogGoneHandy help seal your doors and windows. This is one of our most popular autumn local Atlanta handyman services – and for good reason! Why is sealing your doors and windows one of the most important fall home repairs to check off your to-do list?

 

You’ll save money.

“Most homes in the United States don't have enough insulation and have significant air leaks. In fact, if you added up all the leaks, holes and gaps in a typical home's envelope, it would be the equivalent of having a window open every day of the year!”[i] – Energy Star

 

The gaps around your windows and doors allow cold air to seep in and warm air to leak out, forcing you to crank the heat up and pay a higher energy bill. End the cycle by sealing those doors and windows – for good!

 

Your family will be more comfortable.

Sealing air leaks means that your family members won’t have to wear layers upon layers of clothing to keep warm inside. They’ll be cozy and comfortable, and the annual “thermostat wars” might just come to an end!

 

In addition to the obvious benefits of helping regulate your home’s temperature and saving you money, proper window and door seals can even help reduce outside noise from coming inside your home, as well as pollen and insects. When summer rolls back around, humidity will also have a harder time making its way into your home.

 

While your favorite home fixit show might make this type of project seem easy on the surface, it’s best done with the expertise of a professional team. Because DogGoneHandy’s techs each have a minimum of 16 years of experience, they can easily navigate around complicated trim and window sills. Plus, if your home was built before 1978, projects that involve repairing window seals may mean dealing with hazardous lead paint around your windows. With DogGoneHandy, you’ll find local Atlanta contractors who are equipped to handle any complications that come up with your project and will work quickly to get the job done! Not sure whether your doors and windows are properly sealed? Let DogGoneHandy come out to your home for an inspection and take a look. Our Atlanta handyman services can help you keep heat in your home and keep money in your wallet.
