It’s that spooky time of year, and I’m not referring to Halloween. What’s spooky is winter is right around the corner.
Are you ready? Just as important, is your house ready? We make plans to ensure we are prepared for many cold months ahead, pull out our snow shovels, the plow, and stock up on salt as necessary for winter home prep. However, do we do a proper job of addressing that howling, chilling wind that can start as early as November and depending on Wisconsin’s spring, could easily extend into April.
Let’s start with windows and doors. I can’t think of other areas in our homes that could be such a “weak spot” – cold to the touch, condensation on the inside, howling wind entering through old, rotting windows and doors. We’ve all heard those horror stories – that is what’s spooky and scary.
In addition to the drafts and inefficient windows and doors, your utility bills are higher and you’re uncomfortable in your home. You can picture it – old towels placed against the front door to keep out that nasty draft; wearing extra clothes and wool socks in the house; and covering yourself in blankets when lounging on the couch.
It doesn’t have to be that way. Callen has installed Infinity from Marvin Fiberglass Replacement Windows and Doors on my home, and we noticed significant improvements immediately. The same is true for the front entry door we had installed. Plus, there’s the enhanced curb appeal, as the aesthetics and beauty are apparent both inside and out.
We live in a state that can see temperature swings of 100 degrees some years. Don’t mess around with winter home prep; Call Callen today at 414-867-2207 or complete the online submission form to get started, making your home warmer and more beautiful.
