You might already know one or more spots in your home where you have a problem. Cracks around windows and doors are common trouble spots. Outside wiring (phone lines or cable lines) is another hot spot for leaks.

Weatherstripping can go a long way toward making your doors and windows tight and snug. But you need to choose the right weatherstripping, and that depends on the area and the angles being sealed. Each specific location calls for a unique size and shape, so do your homework. Some keys to applying weatherstripping:

  • Make sure the surface is clean and dry before applying it.
  • Measure twice before cutting to size.
  • Get a snug fit against the surface.

Caulking is used around windows and holes in the home. It is also an excellent seal around faucets and drains. It helps to prevent water leakage, as well, but only if it’s applied correctly:

  • Make sure the surface is clean and dry and free of old caulk and paint.
  • Hold the caulking gun at a constant 45-degree angle for optimum effect.
  • Keep the stream of caulk continuous, without stops that cause clumping. Moving too quickly can cause you to miss spots.
  • Use a putty knife to smooth the surface and make it uniform.
