Severe Weather and Your Windows and Doors

Severe Weather and Your Windows and Doors

No matter where you live in the U.S., you likely experience some form of bad weather. From snowstorms to hurricanes, we see many types of bad weather. And when it does come, it’s encouraging to curl up in your cozy home and wait out the weather knowing your windows and doors are protecting your home from the elements.

Be sure your home is prepped 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 practical tips:

  • Ensure a quality installation – A quality installation gives you the intended structural integrity and best water management during bad weather.

  • Check in to hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows give you more protection to your home from items that may get tossed about in a storm.

  • Inspect 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 keep water away from your home during a weather event.

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