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.
