Severe Weather and Your Windows and Doors

No matter where you live in the U.S., you undoubtedly experience some type of extreme weather. From snowstorms to hurricanes, we deal with many types of bad weather. And when it does hit, it’s nice to curl up in your cozy home and wait out the weather knowing your windows and doors are shielding your home from the elements.

Make sure your home is ready with sufficient planning and protection, paying special attention to your windows and doors and their installation so your home is prepped for bad weather.

Here are a few simple tips:

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

  • Look in to hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows provide added protection to your home from things that may 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 in your best interest 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 being sure that the surrounding area is clear of debris and low hanging branches that have the chance to crash into your windows and doors.
