Severe Weather and Your Windows and Doors

Published on

No matter where you live in the United States, you likely 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 nice to curl up in your cozy home and wait out the weather knowing your windows and doors are protecting your home from the elements.

Ensure your home is prepped with proper planning and protection, paying special attention to your windows and doors and their installation so your home is ready for bad weather.

Here are a few simple tips:

  • Be sure you have a quality installation – A quality installation leaves you with the intended structural integrity and correct water management during bad weather.

  • Consider hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows offer additional protection to your home from items that could 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 direct water away from your home during bad weather.

  • 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.
