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.
