No matter where you live
in the United States, you undoubtedly
experience some sort of extreme weather. From
snowstorms to hurricanes, we deal with many types of severe
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 shielding your home from the elements.
Make sure your home is prepared with sufficient
planning and protection, paying special attention to your
windows and doors and their installation so your home is ready
for inclimate weather.
Here are a few 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 offer more
protection to your home from objects that could
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 a good idea 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 making sure the surrounding
area has no debris or low
hanging branches that have the chance to crash into your
windows and doors.
