Severe Weather and Your Windows and Doors

Published on

No matter where you live in the U.S., you undoubtedly experience some type of extreme weather. From snowstorms to hurricanes, we see many types of severe weather. And when it does hit, it’s comforting 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 ready with sufficient planning and protection, giving special attention to your windows and doors and their installation so your home is prepared for inclimate weather.

Here are a few practical tips:

  • Make sure you have a quality installation – A quality installation leaves you with the intended structural integrity and correct water management during weather events.

  • Look in to hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows give you added protection to your home from objects 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 shield your home is being sure that the surrounding area has no debris or low hanging branches that might crash into your windows and doors.
