WHAT YOU'LL NEED

SKILL SCALE
Easy

TIME REQUIRED
Weatherproofing a window should take 1 to 2 hours.

TOOLS
Tack hammer
Caulk gun
Stapler

MATERIALS
Adhesive-backed V-channel
High-quality neoprene strips
Metal tension strips
Tubular gasket
Reinforced felt
Clear silicone caulk
Shrink-wrap product

Weatherproofing Others Windows For sliding windows you will want to attach metal V-channels to the windows where the sash fits. You will also want to attach reinforced felt around the remaining three sides of the sash. Use a tubular gasket to seal the gap where the sashes meet.
Weatherproofing Others Windows If you have casement windows, you will want to attach self-adhesive, foam compression strips around the window stops on all four sides of the sash. Remember that self-adhesive strips won't stick if the surface is too cold (about 50 degrees F). If that is a consideration, be sure to substitute high-quality neoprene strips.
Weatherproofing Others Windows Metal- and vinyl-clad windows are no different than wood-frame windows, except you must use only self-adhesive weather stripping products so that you do not puncture the cladding of the metal or vinyl windows.
