The Perks of Caulking for the Winter

As winter creeps up on us day by day, here at Cutting Edge Painters we want to ensure that the warmth in your house stays there. The most effective way we tell our loyal customers to achieve this is by caulking before you put a coat of paint on the walls. Caulking is the application of a malleable sealing agent to narrow gaps between baseboards, pieces of trim and any other cracks or holes. The substance is applied by using a particular, gun like tool, loaded with a tube of the product. Then, after cutting a small hole at the end of the nozzle, we apply the caulk to the crack, smoothing out the compound to blend nicely with the surface.

Consumer Federation of America lists caulking windows, baseboards, doors and any other cracks as a sure way to lower your heating cost and protect the home against energy waste while running your heating system. By sealing pesky cracks and holes, not only are you keeping the heat where it belongs, but you are also putting less strain on your home appliances which in the long run saves money on buying a new machine, fixing current ones and, most importantly, saving you from the hassle all together!

While worrying about our own pockets is an important aspect of our everyday life, making sure the environment is well protected for our next generations is just as vital. Caulking and weather proofing a home lowers carbon footprints while lowering the amount of energy needed to create comfortable temperatures.

So keep warm, keep money in your pocket and keep the environment safe by giving us a quote to secure your home for the winter weather!
