Severe Weather and Your Windows and Doors

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 weather.

  • 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.
