How Do I Choose the Right Materials for Weatherization?
Adding weather stripping is a way to “weatherize” your home. The United States Energy Department suggests that you choose your weather stripping materials carefully in order to provide the highest level of protection possible for your home. They suggest choosing materials that will withstand temperature changes, friction and the wear and tear associated with the opening and closing of your door. Reinforced vinyl, foam and silicone are among the forms of durable weather stripping materials that provide moderate to high amounts of protection for doorways.
