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 form of extreme weather. From snowstorms to hurricanes, we deal with many types of extreme weather. And when it does come, it’s comforting to curl up in your cozy home and wait out the weather knowing your windows and doors are guarding your home from the elements.

Make sure your home is prepared with sufficient planning and protection, giving special attention to your windows and doors and their installation so your home is prepped for extreme weather.

Here are a couple practical tips:

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

  • Look in to hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows offer additional protection to your home from things that may 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 a weather event.

  • 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 clean of debris and low hanging branches that might crash into your windows and doors.
