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 sort of severe weather. From snowstorms to hurricanes, we deal with 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 shielding your home from the elements.

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

Here are a couple practical tips:

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

  • Consider hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows give you added protection to your home from items that could get tossed about in a storm.

  • Take a look at your 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 manage water away from your home during severe weather.

  • 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 is clean of debris and low hanging branches that have the chance to crash into your windows and doors.
