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.
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.
