Severe Weather and Your Windows and Doors

Published on

No matter where you live in the United States, you probably experience some form of bad weather. From snowstorms to hurricanes, we see 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 guarding your home from the elements.

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

Here are a couple easy tips:

  • Be sure you have a quality installation – A quality installation leaves you with the intended structural integrity and best water management during weather events.

  • Look in to hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows provide more protection to your home from objects 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 a good idea to double check the seals that help keep water away from your home during a weather event.

  • Clear the area around your home One of the best things you can do to shield your home is being sure that the surrounding area has no debris or low hanging branches that have the chance to crash into your windows and doors.
