Windows and Doors for Severe Weather

Severe Weather and Your Windows and Doors

Published on

No matter where you live in the country, you likely experience some form of severe weather. From snowstorms to hurricanes, we deal with many types of extreme weather. And when it does hit, 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 prepared with great planning and protection, offering special attention to your windows and doors and their installation so your home is ready for extreme weather.

Here are a couple practical tips:

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

  • Consider hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows provide additional protection to your home from objects that may get strewn about in a storm.

  • Check 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 shield your home is making sure the surrounding area has no debris or low hanging branches that might crash into your windows and doors.
