Cold, cold if your siding is too old

Energy efficiency if very important when we start to approach winter here in Portland, Oregon.

Beautiful breaks of sunshine we get are only pleasing to the eye but  it sure is cold!

This  kind of weather makes your home a sweet hideout after  work  or  if you are  out and about in the city of Portland.

Warm cup of tea or coffee and a cozy blanket is a temporary solution but it only helps so much  if your house is loosing heat too fast . How do we  fix that?

The biggest and most important exterior cocoon is your siding. Think of it as a warm coat you put over your home. But is it old , worn or designed poorly?  If its old siding it may need attention but if its new but poorly weatherized or improperly installed you may be loosing your heat just as fast.

Next, windows. With your windows you may face same kind of issues. Your windows will lose heat faster than you can count if they are improperly installed , old,  broken or need proper weatherization.

How about properly installed exterior doors? Small spaces in your door may drive the heat out very quickly. Harsh winds , cold crisp air may sneak in though  the cracks, spaces and uninsullated parts of your doors.

Have you noticed any dry rot in any particular area of your home? It will need to be taken care of because dry rot only spreads deeper into your homes exterior and creates bigger issues down the road.
