No matter where you live
in the U.S., you likely
experience some form of bad weather. From
snowstorms to hurricanes, we encounter many types of extreme
weather. And when it does come, it’s comforting
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 prepared with proper
planning and protection, offering special attention to your
windows and doors and their installation so your home is ready
for bad weather.
Here are a few practical tips:
- Be sure
you have a quality installation – A quality installation gives you
the intended structural integrity and proper water
management during bad weather.
- Consider hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows offer added
protection to your home from things that might
get strewn 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 keep 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 sure the surrounding
area has no debris or low
hanging branches that have the chance to crash into your
windows and doors.
