No matter where you live
in the United States, you likely
experience some form of extreme weather. From
snowstorms to hurricanes, we encounter many types of extreme
weather. And when it does hit, 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.
Ensure your home is prepared with proper
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 easy tips:
- Ensure a quality installation – A quality installation provides
the intended structural integrity and proper water
management during severe weather.
- Check in to hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows give you more
protection to your home from objects that could
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 a weather event.
- Clear the area
around your home – One of the best things you can do to shield
your home is making certain that the surrounding
area is clear of debris and low
hanging branches that might crash into your
windows and doors.
