Severe Weather and Your Windows and Doors

No matter where you live in the U.S., you likely experience some type of extreme weather. From snowstorms to hurricanes, we encounter many types of extreme 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.

Be sure your home is prepped with sufficient planning and protection, paying special attention to your windows and doors and their installation so your home is ready for extreme weather.

Here are a few easy tips:

  • Ensure a quality installation – A quality installation provides 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 could get strewn about 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 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 might crash into your windows and doors.
