Do you go to the hardware store every fall to buy window shrink kits? If you have drafty windows, there is a good chance you do. And, if you do, there is also a good chance that you deal with all of the problems that come along with putting shrink wrap over windows.
First of all, if you put shrink wrap up on more than one window, it is a chore. That double sided tape does not like to cooperate. It can be a real pain trying to get is all the way around a window frame, especially if you have dust on your frame. Then, if you have only two arms, like most of us, getting that plastic wrap up takes some real finesse. But, all this aside; the biggest issue with window plastic is what happens after it’s up.
If you have cats–you know, those animals with sharp claws–that plastic wrap may not keep its airtight seal for very long. Cats and other animals are notorious for putting holes in plastic.
You know who else is notorious for putting holes in plastic? Kids. All it takes is one good game of hide and go seek to turn your hard work into something that is going to require a lot more hard work.
Plastic wrap is a great solution to save money when you have drafty windows. Plastic does a good job of keeping the heat from escaping, as long as it stays intact. But, the problem is, it doesn’t always stay intact. So, either you’re losing money out your windows without realizing it, or you have to rip all that plastic wrap down and put up another sheet.
Fortunately, there is something that works better than plastic. Why not replace those old, drafty windows with new windows?

Not only do modern windows do a better job of preventing heat loss, they are also built to last longer, especially when you get them from Window Nation. Most of the windows we install are manufactured right here. And, when we build windows, we guarantee them to last longer than a lifetime.
