Severe Weather and Your Windows and Doors

Severe Weather and Your Windows and Doors

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.

Be 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.

  • Take 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.
