4 Smart Ways to Prepare Your Home for the Cold Season

November 07, 2016

Winterization is the process of getting ready for the cold season. Before the cold months come at full blast, remember to prepare your home and ensure that it can remain warm without exhausting your heating system. Let Renewal by Andersen® of Milwaukee, your trusted windows contractor in Milwaukee, share some tips to help you get started.

Cold Season

1. Give Your Roof a Touch-Up

One of the best ways to brace your home for the onslaught snow and hail is to give your roof some fine-tuning. Over the past months, it’s possible that your roof has accumulated wear and damage that you are not aware of. Letting a professional roofer inspect and repair it will keep your home drier and more comfortable. A well-maintained roof will also help insulate your home and reduce your energy costs.

2. Go for Energy-Efficient Windows

Failing windows let heat escape and allow chilly drafts to enter your home. If your current units are old and damaged, replacing them with energy-efficient windows in Milwaukee, WI, is your best solution.

Our Renewal by Andersen windows are topnotch when it comes to energy efficiency. They feature our exclusive Fibrex® insulated frame and High-Performance™ Low-E4® that can prevent your indoor heat from escaping, allowing you to earn more energy savings.

3. Install Storm Doors

It’s not surprising to see a spike in your energy bills this coming winter, as the demand for heating also rises. To increase your home’s energy efficiency, upgrade your home with one of our storm doors in Wisconsin. It can help your home be 45% more efficient, as well as seal drafts and reduce air leakage. Aside from fully winterizing your home, our storm doors also come in a range of designs to increase your curb appeal.

Try these tips to prepare your home this coming winter. These projects are ideal at maintaining the right indoor temperature without compromising energy efficiency.

Hear From Our Customers

I cant express how happy we are with choosing Andersen for our window installation. Our sales representative was knowledgeable with product and answered any questions we had without hesitation. I did also fill out a survey that was sent in an email, but sadly I failed to personally name the two gentlemen that performed the actual installation. Barrett and Francisco were our guys, and let me tell you, they were outstanding!!! They did Excellent work and were professional as well as efficient and made this a smooth, none evasive process for us. I strongly recommend this company and these installers to anyone in need of windows!!! My husband and I could not be more pleased we chose Andersen for replacing our windows!!!

This was a great crew to work with. Both the original install manager we worked with (Jay) and the install team (Daniel, Mason, Tony, Ethan, and Jose). Everyone was very professional and knowledgable. They answered all my questions and the end result on the house is great. In 3 days they replaced an old bay window with a new bay window, a set of french doors on the patio with a sliding patio door, and our old front door with a new front door and storm door.

Jason and Brett did an awesome job installing our doors. We had separate installers a month earlier for our windows who also did a fantastic job. They were all very professional and cleaned up almost better than the area looked before the installation! Since these were both jobs that took more than one day the installers were great at keeping us informed on the status of where the project was at along the way.
