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 extreme weather. From snowstorms to hurricanes, we encounter many types of severe 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 shielding your home from the elements.

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

Here are a few simple tips:

  • Be sure you have a quality installation – A quality installation leaves you with the intended structural integrity and best water management during severe weather.

  • Check in to hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows offer additional protection to your home from items that may get thrown around in a storm.

  • Take a look at your 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 keep water away from your home during a weather event.

  • Clear the area around your home One of the best things you can do to guard your home is being sure that the surrounding area is clear of debris and low hanging branches that might crash into your windows and doors.
