Severe Weather and Your Windows and Doors

Published on

No matter where you live in the U.S., you undoubtedly experience some type of severe weather. From snowstorms to hurricanes, we encounter many types of extreme weather. And when it does hit, it’s encouraging to curl up in your cozy home and wait out the weather knowing your windows and doors are shielding your home from the elements.

Be sure your home is ready with great planning and protection, offering special attention to your windows and doors and their installation so your home is ready for inclimate weather.

Here are a handful of practical tips:

  • Be sure you have a quality installation – A quality installation gives you the intended structural integrity and proper water management during severe weather.

  • Consider hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows provide additional protection to your home from things that may get thrown around 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 bad weather.

  • Clear the area around your home One of the best things you can do to protect your home is being sure that the surrounding area is clean of debris and low hanging branches that might crash into your windows and doors.
