Severe Weather and Your Windows and Doors

Severe Weather and Your Windows and Doors

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

Make sure your home is prepared with sufficient planning and protection, offering special attention to your windows and doors and their installation so your home is prepped for bad weather.

Here are a couple practical tips:

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

  • Look in to hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows provide added protection to your home from items that could get strewn about in a storm.

  • Inspect 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 direct water away from your home during bad weather.

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