North Bay residents are enduring a “classic Canadian winter”. The presence of more snow this year means taking the proper precautions to protect your home, especially your windows and doors. Here’s what you should do this winter to protect your property and avoid costly replacements or repairs.

Weather stripping is designed to create a tight seal around your window and door fixtures and their frames in order to protect your home from the elements. This weather stripping can eventually begin to wear over time, which can result in air and water leakage.

This damages your windows and doors and costs you more on your heating bill. Inspecting your weather stripping and replacing it when needed will help to save your fixtures and prevent high heating bills.

It’s important to make sure your windows can take a “classic Canadian winter”. By being proactive and taking the proper precautions, you can add years to the lifespan of your windows and doors, save big on heating costs, and save your home from damaging water and air leaks. And remember, Northwood is always here if you need any repairs or replacements, even in the middle of the winter.
