Severe Weather and Your Windows and Doors

Published on

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

Make sure your home is ready with great planning and protection, offering special attention to your windows and doors and their installation so your home is prepped for extreme weather.

Here are a handful of practical tips:

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

  • Consider hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows give you more protection to your home from things that may get thrown around 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 your best interest 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 is clean of debris and low hanging branches that could crash into your windows and doors.
