Severe Weather and Your Windows and Doors

Published on

No matter where you live in the United States, you undoubtedly experience some form of severe weather. From snowstorms to hurricanes, we see many types of extreme weather. And when it does strike, 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 proper planning and protection, offering special attention to your windows and doors and their installation so your home is ready for bad weather.

Here are a handful of practical tips:

  • Ensure a quality installation – A quality installation provides the intended structural integrity and correct water management during weather events.

  • Look in to hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows provide more protection to your home from items that might 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 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 clear of debris and low hanging branches that have the chance to crash into your windows and doors.
