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.
