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
- 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.
