The idea from this came from tv. I saw teh pre-made kit that does basically the same thing i did but I am sure that it costs a little more than what i spent, although the extra time I spent could have easily been accounted for in cash... it takes about 6 times longer to install but at least you dont have to go get it or find it or pay for it.
If you already have plastic wrap and masking tape.

Step 1: Get all Materials together

Wall-friendly tape- anything that dosent leave marks and is removable
Plastic Wrap - uh, any kind of plastic i think..
Electrical Tape - for parts where flexible tape is needed
I enjoyed your clear instructions. They saved me alot of headache. I need to put some insulation in my newly renovated attic. Who would I call to get <a href="http://www.reitzel.ca/" rel="nofollow">insulation in Burlington</a>?
Great idea! This seems like such a cheap and easy idea. And <a href="http://www.greatcanadian.ca/services/insulation" rel="nofollow">insulation in calgary</a> is so important, especially in the winter. I'll definitely have to try this out.
Thank you so much for sharing this cheap way of doing window insulation. Do you know of a <a href="http://www.rrso.ca/spray_foam_insulation.html" rel="nofollow">insulation business in winnipeg</a> in case this doesn't work? Thank you for your help!
Wow! Thanks for sharing that, I never knew that I could do <a href="http://www.citywideinsul.com" rel="nofollow">insulation in Minneapolis</a> for my house like that. Of course, I'm meaning to save a few extra pennies and not like, insulate my walls.
This works, but it really just depends on how cold the area is. Calgary, for instance, is FREEZING, and a little think piece of <a href="http://www.atticmaster.ca" rel="nofollow">insulation</a> like this won't work very well.
This is a great idea, thanks for posting. We've been looking into <a href="http://www.citywideinsul.com" rel="nofollow">insulation in Minneapolis</a> for a while now wondering what to do. I will have to tell my wife about this.
Thanks for sharing this! This is a strange way for insulation! I have been looking into <a href="http://www.bpspecialist.com" rel="nofollow">insulation buckeye az</a> and what they do! Can you tell me where I can find more information? I know it would be very beneficial for me! Thanks!
This seems like it actually might work. I recently broke my car window and don't have the money right now to fix it so I'm going to try this till I can get my windows replaced and have proper <a href="http://www.enerliv.ca/home-insulation-services.php" rel="nofollow">insulation Hamilton</a>. Thanks for sharing this is great!
Thanks for posting this! I love reading up on home made <a href="http://www.rrso.ca/spray_foam_insulation.html" rel="nofollow">insulation</a> jobs! It's awesome!
I'm tempted to try this kind of cheap <a href="http://www.georgianinsulation.ca" rel="nofollow">insulation</a> out until I can get experts to come insulate my windows for me. I have been freezing the last few nights because of how poorly insulated my windows are. I wouldn't be surprised if there was a leak in every single one of them with how much like a freezer my room becomes.
I found out that the tape may stick to the wall a little too much so im lost because I thought masking tape was supposed to be used for walls. When I&nbsp;took them off it seems like a little paint came off too. <br /> using wood or cardboard to make a frame without using tape might be a better idea.<br />
It's my understanding that there are different qualities of masking tape, but the use of them (for their intended purpose) is to provide temporarily-removable-sticky. If they stay on for a while, they're more likely to bind.
