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 likely experience some form of severe weather. From snowstorms to hurricanes, we deal with many types of bad weather. And when it does strike, it’s nice to curl up in your cozy home and wait out the weather knowing your windows and doors are shielding your home from the elements.

Ensure your home is prepped with great 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 practical tips:

  • Make sure you have a quality installation – A quality installation gives you the intended structural integrity and correct water management during bad weather.

  • Consider hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows offer 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 your best interest to double check the seals that help keep water away from your home during a weather event.

  • 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 has no debris or low hanging branches that have the chance to crash into your windows and doors.
