No matter where you live
in the United States, you likely
experience some sort of bad weather. From
snowstorms to hurricanes, we encounter many types of severe
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 shielding your home from the elements.
sure your home is prepped with proper
planning and protection, giving special attention to your
windows and doors and their installation so your home is ready
for extreme weather.
Here are a couple practical tips:
- Ensure a quality installation – A quality installation provides
the intended structural integrity and proper water
management during weather events.
- Consider hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows provide added
protection to your home from things that could
get strewn 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
good practice to double check the seals that
help manage water away from your home during severe weather.
- Clear the area
around your home – One of the best things you can do to shield
your home is being sure that the surrounding
area has no debris or low
hanging branches that could crash into your
windows and doors.
