Using an inexpensive caulking product to seal windows and doors is one of the most important home maintenance tips to help you save money on your monthly utility bills. Caulking the edges of openings where the air has been escaping will seal them effectively. This is especially important in older homes where gaps may have widened over the years between frames and walls.
Caulk comes in a wide variety of colors, so you can easily match it to your doors and windows. If you prefer, you can even select a clear option to blend in with the existing caulk. There are also caulking options for different materials, so make sure you choose one specifically for the area of your home that you need to seal. Finally, get the job done quickly and accurately with a caulking gun.
A real estate inspection or home inspection is not an appraisal or a check for compliance with building codes; it’s also not an evaluation of environmental hazards. See the NYS Standards of Practice for more information on the limitations of a home inspection.
