From the Forum: Draft-Proofing the House Before Winter

Photo by Susan De Vries


    The house is drafty and before winter arrives some homeowners would like to make it a bit more airtight. They’ve identified where the drafts are coming from — around windows, doors and baseboards — but aren’t sure if this is a job for an insulation company or a skilled handyman who can do some caulking and weather stripping. Who should they hire? What other areas of the house should they make sure are properly sealed and insulated before the cold weather season?

    Please chime in with your advice.
