Severe Weather and Your Windows and Doors

Published on

No matter where you live in the country, you undoubtedly experience some type of extreme weather. From snowstorms to hurricanes, we encounter many types of severe 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 protecting your home from the elements.

Be sure your home is prepared with great planning and protection, giving special attention to your windows and doors and their installation so your home is ready for extreme weather.

Here are a couple easy tips:

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

  • Check in to hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows give you additional protection to your home from items that may get tossed about in a storm.

  • Check seals – Every window and door has them, but depending on the age and location of your home, it is a good idea 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 protect your home is making certain that the surrounding area is clean of debris and low hanging branches that might crash into your windows and doors.
