If your windows aren't weatherstripped, you can seal them yourself with weatherstripping. The three types generally available are spring type, pliable gasket, and compressible felt strips. Look for weatherstripping in a building supply store or home improvement center. Spring-type weatherstripping made from bronze, aluminum, or stainless steel is either bent in the shape of a V (cushion-metal strips) or slightly angled (spring-metal strips); made from plastic, it's shaped like a V.

Apply the compound across the joint; then, holding the knife at a 45° angle to the wall, draw the blade along the joint. Using increasingly wider knives for each layer makes the joint smoother.
