Severe Weather and Your Windows and Doors

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.
