Severe Weather and Your Windows and Doors

Severe Weather and Your Windows and Doors

No matter where you live in the country, you probably experience some form of severe weather. From snowstorms to hurricanes, we see many types of bad weather. And when it does come, it’s nice to curl up in your cozy home and wait out the weather knowing your windows and doors are shielding your home from the elements.

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

Here are a couple easy tips:

  • Make sure you have a quality installation – A quality installation provides the intended structural integrity and proper water management during severe weather.

  • Consider hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows give you additional protection to your home from items that might get thrown around 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 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 is clear of debris and low hanging branches that could crash into your windows and doors.
