What is weatherization? WikiPedia has it’s own definition. Goverenment subsidy programs have there own interpretation. Usually combining insulation services with caulking, window replacements and even water heater and heating system upgrades.
Home Doctor of America’s weatherization program is a group of services geared to keeping your home out of the weather! Roofing, siding and windows are some of the components. Taming Mother Nature’s wrath is what our program focuses on.
