Prevent water leaks, insect invasion, hot air leaks this summer, and cold air leaks next winter by inspecting all the joints on the outside of your house – the places where different kinds of materials meet. Check your siding for any holes, loose joints, and cracked mortar, and your foundation for any fissures. Check the weather stripping on all doors and windows. Use the appropriate materials to seal any openings: caulk, foam, weather stripping, or glazing compound.
