Weatherize Your Home in Rochester, NY

Keep the cold where it belongs this winter – outside! Ray Sands Glass is here to make sure your home is winter ready.

Did you know? 50% or more of heat loss occurs through leaky windows and doors.

Weatherize your home windows

  • Weather stripping – Older windows may have worn out weather stripping and need replacing. Do you have a draft at your window? Is your window 10 years or older?
  • Caulk – Is the caulk cracked or loose? Did you check the outside of the windows?
  • Insulated Units – Do you have moisture trapped between them, causing a seal loss? Are your windows cracked?
  • Window Film – Did you know installing window film can increase the insulation factor of glass? This can keep you warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.

Weatherize your home doors

  • Storm doors – Do you have a storm door? Did you know that energy efficiency can increase by 45%? It seas drafts, reduces airflow, and give an extra layer of protection by putting a buffer between you and the winter cold.
  • Older Storm Doors/ Doors – Are your seals worn out, cracked or missing?  Is the door sweep on the bottom worn out?
  • Caulk – Just like windows needs to be periodically checked and re-caulked.
