Building 101: Weatherstripping Essentials

Protect your home from the elements with these must-haves


Weatherstripping entails sealing openings such as doors, windows, and trunks from the elements. It prevents rain and water from entering the house as well as keeps the interior air in – thereby saving energy on heating and air conditioning.

Raven has products that help seal those gaps.
