Weatherize Your Build A properly weatherized home allows prospective buyers to envision life there in any season
By MICHAEL BORDES
The main goal for weatherization is to protect your home from the exterior elements and maximize the efficiency during household operation. A home that is located in the four-season areas has four reasons to weatherize.
Preparing to Weather the Winter
Winter, in my opinion, is the most important, due to the severe cold temperatures, snow, cold rain, and winds, all of which can make for a very uncomfortable environment if the home is not weatherized properly. By having each home protected, it will also help in saving money on monthly utility bills. Items such as caulk, insulation for your walls and attic, weather stripping, roof shingles, siding, sealed windows and doors, etc., are all useful and important factors in keeping your home and family safe and comfortable.
