Severe Weather and Your Windows and Doors
No matter where you live in the United States, you probably experience some type of bad weather. From snowstorms to hurricanes, we encounter many types of bad weather. And when it does come, it’s comforting to curl up in your cozy home and wait out the weather knowing your windows and doors are shielding your home from the elements.
Make 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 inclimate weather.

you have a quality installation – A quality installation provides
the intended structural integrity and best water
management during weather events.

protection to your home from objects that may
get thrown around in a storm.

and door has them, but depending on the age and location of your home, it is in
good practice to double check the seals that
