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.
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.
