Protect your Windows with Polyethylene Sheeting
Every once in a while, a house needs a fresh coat of paint to improve or retain its beauty. The problem with this kind of project is that windows may get paint on them which is virtually impossible to get rid of. The best method to prevent this from happening is to apply polyethylene sheeting. There are some kinds of polyethylene designed specifically to protect glass from paint or stucco.
Polyethylene is one of the most commonly used products in protecting windows during home makeover projects such as painting the exterior of the home. It is a type of heavy duty plastic sheeting. It is resistant to many chemicals, doesn’t rot, and is recyclable, making it one of the most environmentally safe plastic products available. Polyethylene sheets can also be used as makeshift storm windows.
Investing on storm windows is an excellent idea if you live in an area which is prone to heavy rains. Unfortunately, if it isn’t in the budget, then polyethylene would make an excellent and inexpensive substitute. You can simply apply it to the window frame with duct tape. If you want it to look more seamless, you can use double sided tape. Smooth out every crease before taping. If still unsure about what you are doing, get help from your favorite utility company.
Make sure that you get the right kind of window plastic because they are not all the same. There are generally two kinds of polyethylene sheets available, one that could last up to 180 days and one that could last a year. The difference lies with the amount of ultraviolet inhibitor added in the film. These plastic sheets are known to withstand the harshest weather conditions.
In addition to serving as a protective window plastic, polyethylene is commonly used in other industrial tasks. Polyethylene sheets are commonly used as vapor barrier in construction projects as well as to cover building materials. It is also used as a painter’s drop cloth and a tool to cure concrete.
Protecting—or weatherproofing—your windows has never been so inexpensive, thanks to polyethylene window plastic sheets that have a wide variety of uses.
