Windows and Doors for Severe Weather

Severe Weather and Your Windows and Doors

Published on

No matter where you live in the U.S., you undoubtedly experience some type of bad weather. From snowstorms to hurricanes, we see many types of severe weather. And when it does come, it’s nice to curl up in your cozy home and wait out the weather knowing your windows and doors are protecting your home from the elements.

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

Here are a couple practical tips:

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

  • Check in to hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows offer additional protection to your home from things that might get thrown around 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 shield your home is making certain that the surrounding area is clear of debris and low hanging branches that could crash into your windows and doors.
