Severe Weather and Your Windows and Doors

Published on

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

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

Here are a couple practical tips:

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

  • Check in to hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows provide additional protection to your home from things that could get thrown around in a storm.

  • Check 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 bad weather.

  • Clear the area around your home One of the best things you can do to guard your home is making sure the surrounding area has no debris or low hanging branches that could crash into your windows and doors.
