Severe Weather and Your Windows and Doors

No matter where you live in the U.S., you undoubtedly experience some form of extreme weather. From snowstorms to hurricanes, we encounter many types of severe weather. And when it does hit, it’s comforting 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 prepared with sufficient planning and protection, offering special attention to your windows and doors and their installation so your home is ready for extreme weather.

Here are a couple easy tips:

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

  • Check in to hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows give you additional protection to your home from objects that might 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 keep 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 being sure that the surrounding area has no debris or low hanging branches that have the chance to crash into your windows and doors.
