Severe Weather and Your Windows and Doors

Published on

No matter where you live in the United States, you undoubtedly experience some sort of extreme weather. From snowstorms to hurricanes, we encounter many types of bad weather. And when it does come, it’s encouraging to curl up in your cozy home and wait out the weather knowing your windows and doors are shielding your home from the elements.

Ensure your home is prepped with sufficient planning and protection, paying special attention to your windows and doors and their installation so your home is prepared for extreme weather.

Here are a handful of easy tips:

  • Ensure a quality installation – A quality installation gives you the intended structural integrity and best 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 may get thrown around 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 in good practice to double check the seals that help direct water away from your home during severe 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.
