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.
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.
