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 sort of bad weather. From snowstorms to hurricanes, we encounter many types of extreme weather. And when it does come, it’s encouraging 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 ready with proper planning and protection, paying special attention to your windows and doors and their installation so your home is ready for bad weather.

Here are a couple simple tips:

  • Ensure a quality installation – A quality installation gives you the intended structural integrity and correct water management during weather events.

  • Consider hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows provide more protection to your home from things that might 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 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 might crash into your windows and doors.
