No matter where you live
in the U.S., you probably
experience some form of bad weather. From
snowstorms to hurricanes, we deal with many types of severe
weather. And when it does come, 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 prepared with sufficient
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 handful
of easy tips:
- Ensure a quality installation – A quality installation leaves you with
the intended structural integrity and best water
management during bad weather.
in to hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows offer added
protection to your home from items that might
get strewn about in a storm.
- Inspect 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 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 making sure the surrounding
area has no debris or low
hanging branches that could crash into your
windows and doors.
