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.
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.
