Severe Weather and Your Windows and Doors
No matter where you live in the country, you likely experience some sort of extreme weather. From snowstorms to hurricanes, we see many types of bad weather. And when it does come, it’s encouraging to curl up in your cozy home and wait out the weather knowing your windows and doors are guarding your home from the elements.
Be 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 ready for inclimate weather.
Here are a few simple tips:
- Make sure you have a quality installation – A quality installation leaves you with
the intended structural integrity and correct water
management during severe weather.
- Consider hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows give you more
protection to your home from items that might
get thrown around in a storm.
- Inspect 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 keep water away from your home during severe 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 have the chance to crash into your windows and doors.
