No matter where you live
in the United States, you undoubtedly
experience some sort of extreme weather. From
snowstorms to hurricanes, we encounter many types of bad
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 shielding your home from the elements.
Ensure your home is prepped with sufficient
planning and protection, paying special attention to your
windows and doors and their installation so your home is prepared
for extreme weather.
Here are a handful
of easy tips:
- Ensure a quality installation – A quality installation gives you
the intended structural integrity and best water
management during severe weather.
- Check in to hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows give you additional
protection to your home from objects that may
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
good practice 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 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.
