The Kensington, DC Metro weather brings some chilly, icy winters. That cold moisture creeps in quickly if the home isn’t properly weatherproofed.
September is here with dropping temperatures. It won’t be long before the cold, wet weather sets in. This is the right time of year to ensure your Kensington home is buttoned up tight with a good caulking and weatherproofing.
Inspect Your Caulking & Weatherproofing
Have you taken a good look around your home at the caulking and weatherproofing? It never seems to fail that there’s some missing weatherproofing around doorways in homes that are aging. Drafty doors are one of the major causes of energy wastage and high bills. Windows are another area that often wastes energy because the sealant is missing.
It will be very beneficial to recaulk and weatherproof where needed. Your home will be more comfortable and you won’t be throwing energy dollars out the doors or windows.

Having professional help with weatherproofing your home will give you the best results. So many homeowners try to do the job themselves only to find out how difficult it can be to do it right.
Most will go and purchase adhesive-backed weather stripping. It isn’t long before the stuff comes off. It just doesn’t last.
Caulking isn’t easy to do. If applied in squiggly lines it does no good at all. If not smoothed, it won’t be pushed into the cracks where it needs to adhere. Removing old caulk is a huge chore unless you have the skill and tools to get it done.

We will remove any old caulking and re-caulk any areas that need it – up high or down low. This is a time consuming, difficult job. Why not call for an estimate? You may be surprised at how affordable it is to have help.
