Windows and Doors for Severe Weather

Severe Weather and Your Windows and Doors

Published on

No matter where you live in the country, you probably experience some sort of bad weather. From snowstorms to hurricanes, we encounter many types of bad weather. And when it does strike, it’s encouraging to curl up in your cozy home and wait out the weather knowing your windows and doors are shielding your home from the elements.

Be sure your home is ready with sufficient planning and protection, offering special attention to your windows and doors and their installation so your home is prepped for inclimate weather.

Here are a few simple tips:

  • Be sure you have a quality installation – A quality installation gives you the intended structural integrity and proper water management during weather events.

  • Look in to hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows provide additional protection to your home from things that might get thrown around in a storm.

  • Inspect 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 direct water away from your home during severe weather.

  • Clear the area around your home One of the best things you can do to guard your home is making sure the surrounding area is clear of debris and low hanging branches that could crash into your windows and doors.
