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.
