Severe Weather and Your Windows and Doors

Published on

No matter where you live in the country, you likely experience some form of severe weather. From snowstorms to hurricanes, we see many types of extreme weather. And when it does hit, it’s encouraging to curl up in your cozy home and wait out the weather knowing your windows and doors are shielding your home from the elements.

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

Here are a couple easy tips:

  • Make sure you have a quality installation – A quality installation gives you the intended structural integrity and proper water management during weather events.

  • Consider hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows offer added protection to your home from items that might get strewn 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 a good idea 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 protect your home is being sure that the surrounding area is clean of debris and low hanging branches that might crash into your windows and doors.
