Beat the Weather Install Weatherstripping

Installing weatherstripping around windows and doors is an easy and effective way to reduce energy bills throughout the year. In hot seasons, weatherstripping prevents cool air from escaping, and in colder months, it keeps in the heat. The installation of weatherstripping is simple and quick. You can buy self-adhesive strips that you can cut to the lengths you need, and the strips can be attached in a few minutes. In addition to serving as effective insulation, weatherstripping braces windows and large panes of glass such as sliding glass doors, so they will not rattle in the wind. If you are interested in selling your house, good weatherstripping can also be a positive selling point for prospective buyers. This is easy home maintenance that pays off.

What are the limitations
on an inspection?

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.
