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.
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.
