No matter where you live
in the country, you likely
experience some form of severe weather. From
snowstorms to hurricanes, we see many types of extreme
weather. And when it does hit, it’s comforting
to curl up in your cozy home and wait out the weather knowing your windows and
doors are guarding your home from the elements.
Ensure your home is ready with sufficient
planning and protection, giving special attention to your
windows and doors and their installation so your home is ready
for inclimate weather.
Here are a few practical tips:
- Be sure
you have a quality installation – A quality installation provides
the intended structural integrity and correct water
management during severe weather.
- Consider hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows provide added
protection to your home from things 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 a good idea to double check the seals that
help direct water away from your home during bad
- 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.
