Draft Proofing

Draft proofing usually consists of blocking up gaps that allow warm air to escape. It is often more a series of small jobs than a big installation.

The most important candidates for draft proofing are:

  • Windows
  • Doors
  • Chimneys and Fireplaces
  • Floorboards and skirting boards
  • Loft hatches
  • Pipework
  • Old extractor fans
  • Cracks in walls
