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.
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.
