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 protecting your home from the elements.

Be sure your home is ready with great planning and protection, paying special attention to your windows and doors and their installation so your home is prepared for bad weather.

Here are a handful of easy tips:

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

  • Check in to hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows offer more protection to your home from objects that could get strewn 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 bad weather.

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