i have insulation in my basement that was put up very poorly.. I believe I can redo most of it my self however . the basement floods in the spring and now the insulation has gotten wet thru out the seasons.. it might be a bigger job then I think..
as far as the basement flooding thats a whole other nightmare.. LOL
What about plastic over the window frames for insulation?
I only recommend this as a last resort as typically the plastic doesn’t last the full season and the tape pulls up paint on your window sill. It’s better to look into storm windows or replacement windows.
These are great! Do you have any suggestions for the styrofoam tap covers when your dogs keep chewing them off? I went with the those that have the plastic over the styrofoam and they lasted a little longer but eventually got chewed off… ! Thansk!
Thanks for posting this…I’ve missed a few of these previous posts and absolutely need to take care of some of these things before it gets cold!
