Severe Weather and Your Windows and Doors

Severe Weather and Your Windows and Doors

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.
