Severe Weather and Your Windows and Doors

Severe Weather and Your Windows and Doors

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

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

Here are a handful of easy tips:

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

  • Consider hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows offer more protection to your home from objects that might get thrown around in a storm.

  • Inspect 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 severe weather.

  • 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 clean of debris and low hanging branches that have the chance to crash into your windows and doors.
