Severe Weather and Your Windows and Doors

Severe Weather and Your Windows and Doors

No matter where you live in the country, you likely experience some sort of severe weather. From snowstorms to hurricanes, we encounter many types of severe weather. And when it does strike, it’s nice 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 prepared with proper planning and protection, offering special attention to your windows and doors and their installation so your home is prepared for inclimate weather.

Here are a couple practical tips:

  • Ensure a quality installation – A quality installation provides the intended structural integrity and proper water management during severe weather.

  • Look in to hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows provide more protection to your home from items that might get strewn 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 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 protect your home is making certain that the surrounding area is clear of debris and low hanging branches that could crash into your windows and doors.
