The CDC Guidelines now allow fully vaccinated residents to go about their business without masks but we ask that shoppers, vendors, and staff who have not been fully vaccinated continue to wear masks at the market.

Many thanks to all our friends and neighbors for your continued support of our local, small businesses and the Old Town North Community Partnership.

The Dos and Don’ts of Caulking Windows

Did you know that 25% of heat loss during winter is a result of cold draughts seeping through your window frames? Follow our dos and don’ts for caulking windows to help regulate cold air and moisture infiltration.

  • DO remove old window sealant – This allows new caulk to adhere to the surface.
  • DO apply the new sealant to a clean surface – Use a solvent to wipe down window surfaces to remove dust and dirt.
  • DO choose the correct caulk – Choose the correct caulk for the specific location: Exterior windows, interior windows, humid rooms, or masonry siding.
  • DON’T  cut too much off the end of the caulk tube tip – The plastic tip on a caulk tube narrows to a point, the more you cut off, the larger the bead of caulk will be.
  • DON’T caulk weep holes – Weep holes are the small vents or openings in bricks that allow for proper airflow and water release. Weep holes are an important structural function to prevent rust, mold, and rot.
  • DON’T caulk your window shut – Take note of all the window sections and moveable parts that allow the window to open.

As always, if you’re not ready to take on the DIY, we are always here to help!
