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 type of severe weather. From snowstorms to hurricanes, we see many types of extreme weather. And when it does hit, 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.

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

Here are a handful of simple tips:

  • Be sure you have a quality installation – A quality installation provides the intended structural integrity and correct water management during bad weather.

  • Consider hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows give you more protection to your home from items that might get strewn about in a storm.

  • Check 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 manage water away from your home during a weather event.

  • Clear the area around your home One of the best things you can do to protect your home is making sure the surrounding area is clean of debris and low hanging branches that could crash into your windows and doors.
