No matter where you live
in the United States, you likely
experience some form of severe weather. From
snowstorms to hurricanes, we see many types of severe
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 prepped with sufficient
planning and protection, offering special attention to your
windows and doors and their installation so your home is prepared
for extreme weather.
Here are a few practical tips:
- Ensure a quality installation – A quality installation leaves you with
the intended structural integrity and proper water
management during weather events.
- Consider hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows give you additional
protection to your home from items that may
get tossed 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
good practice to double check the seals that
help manage water away from your home during a weather event.
- Clear the area
around your home – One of the best things you can do to protect
your home is making sure the surrounding
area is clear of debris and low
hanging branches that might crash into your
windows and doors.
