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 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.

Here are a couple practical tips:

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

  • Check in to hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows offer additional protection to your home from objects that may get thrown around in a storm.

  • Inspect seals – Every window 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 help direct 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 making certain that the surrounding area has no debris or low hanging branches that might crash into your windows and doors.
