Basic draught proofing is not difficult. With the possible exception of a caulking gun, you will probably already have all the tools for a basic draught proofing project. The materials are a bit more specialised, but all are likely to be readily available from your local hardware shop, one of the DiY superstores or a builder’s merchant. Read more about Tools and materials.
Basic draught proofing projects tend to focus on four sources of draughts:
- ill-fitting windows and doors
- gaps in floors
- gaps at ceiling and loft level
- gaps around openings in external walls (including for windows, doors and pipes).
