Severe Weather and Your Windows and Doors

Published on

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

Be sure 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 extreme weather.

Here are a couple practical tips:

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

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

  • Inspect seals – Every window and door has them, but depending on the age and location of your home, it is in your best interest to double check the seals that help keep 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 might crash into your windows and doors.
