Severe Weather and Your Windows and Doors

Severe Weather and Your Windows and Doors

No matter where you live in the country, you likely experience some type of bad weather. From snowstorms to hurricanes, we deal with many types of extreme weather. And when it does strike, it’s nice 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 prepared with proper planning and protection, paying special attention to your windows and doors and their installation so your home is ready for extreme weather.

Here are a couple practical tips:

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

  • Look in to hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows give you additional protection to your home from objects that may get tossed about in a storm.

  • Take a look at your 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 a weather event.

  • 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 could crash into your windows and doors.
