Severe Weather and Your Windows and Doors

No matter where you live in the United States, you undoubtedly experience some type of bad weather. From snowstorms to hurricanes, we see many types of extreme weather. And when it does strike, it’s nice to curl up in your cozy home and wait out the weather knowing your windows and doors are protecting your home from the elements.

Be sure your home is prepped with sufficient planning and protection, giving special attention to your windows and doors and their installation so your home is prepared for bad weather.

Here are a handful of practical tips:

  • Make sure you have a quality installation – A quality installation provides the intended structural integrity and best water management during bad weather.

  • Check in to hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows offer more protection to your home from objects that might get strewn about in a storm.

  • Take a look at your 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 a weather event.

  • 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 has no debris or low hanging branches that might crash into your windows and doors.
