No matter where you live
in the United States, you probably
experience some sort of extreme weather. From
snowstorms to hurricanes, we see many types of extreme
weather. And when it does come, it’s nice
to curl up in your cozy home and wait out the weather knowing your windows and
doors are protecting your home from the elements.
sure your home is prepped with sufficient
planning and protection, offering special attention to your
windows and doors and their installation so your home is ready
for bad weather.
Here are a handful
of practical tips:
- Be sure
you have a quality installation – A quality installation leaves you with
the intended structural integrity and proper water
management during weather events.
- Consider hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows provide added
protection to your home from things that might
get tossed about in a storm.
a look at your seals – Every window
and door has them, but depending on the age and location of your home, it is in your best interest to double check the seals that
help keep water away from your home during severe weather.
- Clear the area
around your home – One of the best things you can do to guard
your home is making certain that the surrounding
area has no debris or low
hanging branches that could crash into your
windows and doors.
