Weatherstripping is an often overlooked yet essential component of any home. It plays a crucial role in maintaining a comfortable indoor environment, reducing energy costs, and preventing damage caused by the elements. This post will explore the importance of weatherstripping, the various types available, and how to install and maintain weatherstripping effectively.

Why Weatherstripping Matters

Weatherstripping is sealing gaps around windows and doors to prevent air and moisture from entering or escaping your home. Here are some compelling reasons why weatherstripping should be a priority for homeowners:


  1. Energy Efficiency: Properly installed weatherstripping can significantly improve your home’s energy efficiency by preventing drafts. This means lower heating and cooling costs throughout the year.
  2. Comfort: Weatherstripping helps maintain a consistent indoor temperature, ensuring that your home remains comfortable regardless of the weather outside.
  3. Protection: It acts as a barrier against moisture, preventing water damage, mold, and rot. It also keeps dust and pests outside where they belong.
  4. Environmental Benefits: Reducing energy consumption through weatherstripping contributes to a smaller carbon footprint, making it an eco-friendly choice.

robert byrne - September 29, 2023

I had purchased two (2) rolls of your weather sealing tape at the end of last summer. When I received it, for some reason, the two (2) rolls were a dingy, yellow color like it had been stored in a smokers house for many years. I had contacted you company and was assured the tape was fine to use, that it would work as advertised, and I would not experience any reside when it was removed in the time frame I intended keeping it on the frames of my vinyl windows, which was only during the 3 + months of the winter, after which I would remove it for the summer season. I did install is on vinyl windows.
When late winter, early spring rolled around, I attempted to remove it and was surprised to find that it left a thick sticky layer of adhesive on the frame which made it necessary to use rubbing alcohol for removal and ALOT of elbow grease and time!!! I was extremely disappointed that I had chosen to try this tape instead of sticking with the Frost King brand I usually used. I hope this was just a freak or rare occurrence.
I would like to respectfully request at least one roll of this tape as a replacement so that I may possibly get a sample from a more current lot or batch number and try it. I am always searching for better products for specific applications.
Thanks for any consideration and help you can provide.
