Severe Weather and Your Windows and Doors

Published on

No matter where you live in the United States, you likely experience some type of severe weather. From snowstorms to hurricanes, we encounter many types of bad weather. And when it does strike, 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.

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

Here are a couple practical tips:

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

  • Look in to hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows offer added protection to your home from items that might 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 keep water away from your home during severe weather.

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