Severe Weather and Your Windows and Doors

Published on

No matter where you live in the country, you probably experience some sort of extreme weather. From snowstorms to hurricanes, we encounter many types of bad 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 prepared with great planning and protection, giving special attention to your windows and doors and their installation so your home is prepped for bad weather.

Here are a handful of practical tips:

  • Ensure a quality installation – A quality installation gives you the intended structural integrity and proper water management during weather events.

  • Check in to hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows provide added protection to your home from objects that may 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 in good practice to double check the seals that help manage water away from your home during a weather event.

  • Clear the area around your home One of the best things you can do to guard your home is making sure the surrounding area is clean of debris and low hanging branches that could crash into your windows and doors.
