Windows and Doors for Severe Weather

Severe Weather and Your Windows and Doors

Published on

No matter where you live in the country, you undoubtedly experience some sort of severe weather. From snowstorms to hurricanes, we encounter many types of severe 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 shielding your home from the elements.

Ensure your home is prepared with great planning and protection, paying special attention to your windows and doors and their installation so your home is prepped for extreme weather.

Here are a couple easy tips:

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

  • Check in to hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows give you added protection to your home from items that may get tossed about in a storm.

  • Check 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 protect your home is making certain that the surrounding area is clean of debris and low hanging branches that might crash into your windows and doors.
