Severe Weather and Your Windows and Doors
No matter where you live in the U.S., you probably experience some type of bad weather. From snowstorms to hurricanes, we encounter many types of severe weather. And when it does come, it’s comforting to curl up in your cozy home and wait out the weather knowing your windows and doors are shielding your home from the elements.
Ensure your home is prepped with great planning and protection, paying special attention to your windows and doors and their installation so your home is prepped for inclimate weather.
Here are a couple easy tips:
- Ensure a quality installation – A quality installation gives you
the intended structural integrity and correct water
management during severe weather.
- Check in to hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows offer added
protection to your home from items that could
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 in
good practice to double check the seals that
help manage 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 being sure that the surrounding area has no debris or low hanging branches that have the chance to crash into your windows and doors.
