No matter where you live
in the country, you undoubtedly
experience some sort of bad weather. From
snowstorms to hurricanes, we see many types of severe
weather. And when it does strike, 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.
sure your home is prepped with proper
planning and protection, paying special attention to your
windows and doors and their installation so your home is ready
for extreme weather.
Here are a few easy 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 provide additional
protection to your home from items that might
get thrown around 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 direct water away from your home during severe weather.
- Clear the area
around your home – One of the best things you can do to guard
your home is making certain that the surrounding
area has no debris or low
hanging branches that might crash into your
windows and doors.
