WindowDressers is a volunteer-driven non-profit organization dedicated to helping Maine residents reduce heating costs, fossil fuel consumption, and CO-2 emissions by lowering the amount of heat loss through windows.

We have developed a Community Build model inspired by an old-fashioned barn raising, where neighbors help neighbors build inserts for a week in their local community. We call this the Community Build program.

Inserts offer an inexpensive alternative to window replacement.  Our customers save, on average, ten to twenty percent on their fuel consumption, generally returning their investment within the first heating season.

Part of our mission is to donate twenty-five percent of our inserts to low income families for a contribution of $10 for up to ten  inserts.

With 30% of building heat loss occurring through windows, WindowDressers volunteers manufacture insulating inserts which reduce the need for heat during cold seasons. Stopping this avenue of heat loss reduces fuel oil use and CO2 production simultaneously.

There are 557,000 homes in Maine, and over 90 percent of them need weatherization. We’re here to help.
