Windows and Doors for Severe Weather

Severe Weather and Your Windows and Doors

Published on

No matter where you live in the United States, you probably experience some sort of extreme weather. From snowstorms to hurricanes, we encounter many types of severe 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.

Ensure your home is prepared with sufficient planning and protection, giving special attention to your windows and doors and their installation so your home is ready for inclimate weather.

Here are a couple simple tips:

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

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

  • Inspect 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 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 protect your home is being sure that the surrounding area has no debris or low hanging branches that might crash into your windows and doors.
