Severe Weather and Your Windows and Doors

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.

  • Look 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.
