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 sort of severe weather. From snowstorms to hurricanes, we encounter many types of bad weather. And when it does come, it’s nice to curl up in your cozy home and wait out the weather knowing your windows and doors are guarding your home from the elements.

Be sure your home is ready with proper planning and protection, offering special attention to your windows and doors and their installation so your home is ready for bad weather.

Here are a few practical tips:

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

  • Look in to hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows provide more protection to your home from things that might get tossed about in a storm.

  • Take a look at your 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 bad weather.

  • Clear the area around your home One of the best things you can do to protect your home is being sure that the surrounding area is clean of debris and low hanging branches that have the chance to crash into your windows and doors.
