Severe Weather and Your Windows and Doors

No matter where you live in the U.S., you probably experience some type of extreme weather. From snowstorms to hurricanes, we encounter 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 guarding your home from the elements.

Make sure your home is ready with sufficient planning and protection, giving special attention to your windows and doors and their installation so your home is ready for extreme weather.

Here are a handful of easy tips:

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

  • Look in to hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows offer added protection to your home from objects that might get tossed about in a storm.

  • Check seals – Every window and door has them, but depending on the age and location of your home, it is a good idea to double check the seals that help keep 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 sure the surrounding area is clean of debris and low hanging branches that might crash into your windows and doors.
