According to the National Association of Home Builders, there are more than 7 million cabins, cottages and camps in the United States. If you own one of them, you know when it’s time to prepare for keeping the winter wind out. Obviously, this procedure is critical in Midwestern states, but drafts of any kind can be uncomfortable, so covering your cracks is good practice in any part of the country.
Windows with air leaks make your heating or cooling system work harder over time, leading to higher energy bills, so sealing them will save you money. Let’s face it; weather stripping is unattractive, and you certainly don’t want to squirt messy caulk into your window creases, so what’s a good alternative?
InstaTrim® is a flexible, peel and stick trim solution that can cover your window gaps and the patented, self-centering wings assure uniform positioning on any surface. In addition to keeping hot and cold air out, it provides a maintenance-free barrier that prevents debris from collecting in your crevices and bugs from getting inside your house! The self-adhesive trim strips come in several colors, so you have the choice of blending in or standing out, depending on your preference.
Application is easy. Simply peel back the liner and hold the end of the strip with the adhesive side facing the corner. Line up the first 2-3 feet of the strip and press into place every 4-6 inches. Repeat with the next 2-3 feet until complete. Then, trim the finished end of the strip using a scissors or razor blade! Covering your cabin cracks has never been this easy! And, if your getaway is on wheels, please note that InstaTrim is also being used in RV’s.
Winter, spring, summer or fall, all you have to do is call for InstaTrim!
