Five tips for draught-proofing your home

Many of the steps are cheap and easy to remove too, so are just as practical if you’re renting as if you’re a home owner.

1. Fit special weatherstripping tape to make windows less draughty. Weatherstripping (typically self-adhesive foam tape) helps to fill the gap between the frame and the moving part of the window. The same tape can be used on exterior doors. Bear in mind though, original sash windows are notoriously draughty, and you may prefer to get a pro to draught-proof and refurbish them more thoroughly.

2. Minimise draughts at the bottom of an exterior door with a brush-style strip – simply cut it to fit and screw it in place, but don’t fit it too low or it will drag on the floor. Exterior doors should also be fitted with keyhole and letterbox covers to stop cold air coming in.

We met with several different realty groups and could tell immediately that Diane was a step above the rest – she was informative, very responsive, resourceful and a true professional. Diane came up with creative staging ideas and even pitched in to help. She was a true team player and really guided us through his process. I already referred her to my neighbor and they just closed on their deal.
