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 extreme weather. From snowstorms to hurricanes, we see many types of severe weather. And when it does strike, it’s nice to curl up in your cozy home and wait out the weather knowing your windows and doors are guarding your home from the elements.

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

Here are a couple simple 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.

  • Check in to hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows give you more protection to your home from items that may get strewn 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 in good practice to double check the seals that help manage water away from your home during bad weather.

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