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.
